About Jamie Carragher

"Jamie Carragher was born in Bootle and from the age of 3 his Mum and I can remember, that he wanted to be a footballer. By the time Jamie was 7 years old, I had to tell a little white lie and say that he was 8, because in those days you needed to be 8 to play competitive football. He immediately started playing on a Sunday for Merton Villa in the under 11's Bootle and Litherlands District League.

Even in those early days Jamie's potential and natural abilities where very obvious; those abilities combined with determination and total dedication to developing the skills necessary to play at premiership level, have ensured that Jamie achieved his dream."

Philly Carragher.
