Ethan Williams: Key Facts

Ethan Williams was the breakout star of Manchester United’s under-18s campaign last season.

The 17-year-old scored seven goals and provided nine assists in all competitions, featuring on both the left wing and right wing. Williams provided an assist in the FA Youth Cup too.

He is eligible to play international football for both England and France and was called up late in the season to Manchester United’s under-21 side.

Ethan Wheatley: Key Facts

Ethan Wheatley, also 17, is more of a traditional centre-forward than Williams and also had a promising season at under-18s level.

He scored five goals, despite missing several games, averaging a strike every 187 minutes. He finished the season really strongly, with three in his last five games.

Wheatley is an England under-17s international. He is yet to play for the under-21s.
