Man United Keep On Eye On 11 Year Old

11 year old Jack Gilchrist played for Rolls-Royce Leisure Under-11s last season but he has already been training at Manchester United's Carrington Training Ground.
The youngster has been spotted by Man United, Port Vale and Aston Villa but Man United's youth-recruitment officer, Derek Langley, Jack has signed for Coca-Cola League One side Walsall.

It was too far for Jack to travel and Walsall have become Man United's feeder club so there will be a good chance that we will sign him when he turns 14. Jack is a right sided midfielder and he has impressed Man United.

Jack's dad, Glen Gilchrist, said: "Jack went up to United's training facility at Carrington and they were impressed. But Derek Langley said it was too far to travel to Manchester and recommended Jack join Walsall.

"Walsall are a bit like a feeder-club to United so this way, they can keep a close eye on him and have first option on him when he turns 14.

"I am so happy for Jack. He has worked very hard and he puts his best into it. I am absolutely delighted for him, as is his mum Sharon.

"Jack is also over the moon about it, although he has still got his feet firmly on the floor."

Nice to see that we could have another talented English youngster. Good luck to Jack and keep up the good work.
