Liverpool Under-23s boss Michael Beale is confident that young forward Jack Dunn has the ability to score goals regularly if he can stay fit.

The 21-year-old striker has been loaned out to League Two outfit Morecambe until January in order to provide him with a taste of regular senior football, albeit in a lower league.

And Liverpool Under-23s boss Beale is confident that Dunn has the ability at the moment to set the lower leagues on fire with his goals and performances, which he feels would be a good starting point for him to progress further.

Beale told LFC TV: “Jack Dunn, I am just pleased to see him fit and playing.

“We always know that at League One or League Two level, he will be a prolific striker and it’s about building momentum on the back of that and try and make it up.”  


The 21-year-old forward has struggled with injuries over the last couple of years, and Beale is keen to see how the young striker manages to cope with regular football when he is fit.

The Liverpool youth coach feels that there is evidence to suggest that if Dunn can remain fit, then the youngster has the ability to be an excellent operator, who can regularly score goals for his team.

“As you get older and mature you sort of learn how to manage your body; Jack’s had to learn that and he had a couple of mishaps in terms of injury.

“But when he is fit, like he was two years ago at Cheltenham and Burton and when he was in and around our first team training, he has shown that he is an excellent player.

“I will be really pleased if he can stay fit from now until Christmas, as if he does then I expect him to score 10 to 15 goals, and what it will do for him personally, we all know is fantastic.”
