FBref Adds Youth Leagues

Posted by Alex Bonilla on October 8, 2019

FBref continues to expand the variety of competitions covered on the site, as we are now announcing the addition of the following youth leagues:

* Premier League 2 - Division 1 (U23)
* Premier League 2 - Division 2 (U23)
* A-Junioren Bundesliga (U19)
* B-Junioren Bundesliga (U17)

One name Bundesliga enthusiasts may be hearing for years to come is Youssoufa Moukoko, who has scored 15 goals through the first 7 games of the A-Junioren Bundesliga season for Dortmund. He moved up to A after scoring 46 goals and 37 goals in the last 2 B-Junioren Bundesliga seasons. Mind you, he will celebrate his 15th birthday later this year.

From the English youth leagues, Harry Wilson led PL 2 - Div 1 in goals scored in 2016-17, as well as finishing 3rd the following season. This year he's playing at the top level with Bournemouth on loan from Liverpool and already has 3 goals on his 2019-20 ledger.

Youth league statistics will appear in a separate table on player pages when applicable. You can keep up with the latest additions of competitions coverage and new features here on the Sports Reference Blog, or by signing up for the This Week in Sports Reference mailing list.
