New Wayne Rooney found on Merseyside - and he is Liverpool mad!

The new Wayne Rooney has emerged on Merseyside.

The Mirror says Gerard Garner has topped a Wayne Rooney scoring record thought to be unbeatable. Gerard, 11, surpassed the remarkable 72-goal haul notched up by the England star in the same under-11s team in 1996-97.

Many thought they would never see 72 done again, but the little striker accomplished the feat with two games left to play. And when Liverpool Boys star Gerard thumped in number 73 in the under-11s North West Cup Final against Macclesfield at Deepdale, the new record was his.

He has attended the same school as Manchester United star Rooney – Our Lady & St Swithin’s primary in Croxteth. But there is one major difference – Gerard is a Red and Rooney, certainly when growing up, was a committed Blue.
