This week in ... 2015  (scroll to end)

Stars past and future featured in an Under-21s derby between Charlton and Millwall. The Charlton frontline comprised 17-year-old Karlan Ahearne-Grant and Tony Watt, the former Celtic striker who had signed that week from Standard Liege. Grant’s fellow first-year scholar, Ezri Konsa, was left on the sideline in favour of former Milan centre-back Oguchi Onyewu.

The players on the field that day are now scattered far and wide. Watt is now with CSKA Sofia; Grant is Huddersfield’s star striker (and surely Scotland’s best uncapped player); while Konsa is getting plenty of defensive practice with Aston Villa. Onyewu, who won 69 caps for USA, retired after playing for 12 clubs, appearing more than two dozen times for just one of them: Standard Liège. The Millwall team was managed by Neil Harris and captained by Ben Thompson, the only outfield player in the Millwall team who is still playing in the Football League.
