Latics Best Ever Home Grown players?


Recommended Posts

The commentary on The Championship over our goals against Tranmere mentioned that all 3 goal-scorers were 'home-grown'. In fact I think 6 of the 11 on Saturday were 'home-grown': Alesandra, Taylor, Allot (originally), Lomax, Eardley, Smalley.

 

After some more thought a post to suggest the best ever home grwon players might be a bit of fun - they have to played for the 1st team (no Micah). State in your post when you first started watching Latics - helps comparisons.

 

Perhaps after a few responses we could try to pull together a full 11?

 

Not had chance to consider it much but off top of my head I'll give the following as some starters (apologies if they are not home grown):

 

Keeper - Goram / Gerrard

 

Defenders - Andy Barlow / Will Haining

 

Midfield - Chris Taylor / Nick Henry / Milligan

 

Forwards - ???? struggling with this one

Misread the post about needing to have played for our first team :blush: , but still worth mentioning home-grown products.

 

Micah Richards.

 

I suppose it's unfair to include Boundary Park Juniors, but here goes:

 

Neville brothers

Nicky Butt

Scholesy

Trevor Sinclair.

Andy Goram isn't actually one of our own.

 

We signed him from West Brom after he was released following a fall out with big Ron Atkinson.

 

He was actually nearly 18 or just 18 when Big Joe signed him.

 

IIRC we had Martin Hodge on loan and he got injured after a couple of matches and Goram was thrown into the team never to look back.

 

Amazing how a Bury born & bred lad could develop a Scottish accent after a couple of years in Glasgow.

 

Home grown team

 

1) John Platt

2) Nick Sinclair

3) Carl Serrant

4) Nick Henry

5) Keith Hicks

6) Will Hainning

7) Andy Sweeney

8) Wayne Harrison

9) Jim Steele

10) Mark Robbins

11) Carl Valentine

 

SUBS:

 

12) Chris Ogden

13) Andy Barlow

14) Will Haining

15) Mike Milligan

16) Mike Cecere

 

Now that team would get us out of this god dam league. All of them played at Championship or Premiership level with the exception of Haining who has gone on to prove himself in that top league north of the border :grin:
