Who were your clubs? I remember at the turn of the Millenium Bristol City had a striker called Marvin Brown. Was City's youngest ever player and seemed a real talent for the future (and if you played as City CM00-01 he'd inevitably get snapped up by Premiership or upper-end Championship clubs)
At the age of 24 he's now playing for Salisbury City.
I remember at a similar time Bristol Rovers had a player called Simon Bryant who made his debut really young and Rovers fans at my school were ridiculously excited about. Injuries got to him and I think he's retired now...
So who weren't your club's stars of the future?
PS I decided that this would be out of place on the main football thread and did need to be a thread in its own right.
