Barnsley have pledged to nurture Reuben Noble-Lazarus after the striker, aged 15 years and 45 days, became the Football League's youngest player.
Boss Simon Davey said the youngster, who was due back at school on Wednesday, was too young to be paid.

I didn't realise that other 15 year-olds had played before. I guess 15 years must be the youngest that can play in England? Anyone know how this compares across Europe ?

Imagine telling all your mates that you played a game of professional footy the night before! 8) Then again, his team did lose 0-3 so maybe he kept it quiet! :lol:
