Wolves FA Cup run: Harry Burgoyne looks set to start against Liverpool

Sport | Published:

Harry Burgoyne looks set to play on one of the grandest stages in world football when Wolves head to Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The 20-year-old is in line to keep goal at Anfield with Carl Ikeme suspended and Andy Lonergan not fully fit after a knee injury. It's a far cry to a year ago when he was on the bench at AFC Telford United – and the latest step on a long journey that took in Bitterley Primary School and Ludlow School.

Will Davies, headteacher at Bitterley, said: "We are very proud he has been through our school."

Burgoyne produced a man-of-the-match display on his Wolves debut – a 4-4 draw with Fulham on December 10 – and also played in the 2-1 loss to Cardiff three days later.
