Ashley Young

Ashley Young

Clubs: Watford FC, Aston Villa FC, Manchester United FC

• Born in Stevenage, he attended the same school as Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton; joined local club Watford FC at 15 and scored on his first-team debut, at 18, in a second-tier match against Millwall FC.

• A goalless 2004/05 season was followed by a brilliant 2005/06 campaign, his 13 goals, many of them spectacular long-range efforts, helping the Hertfordshire team book a place in the Premier League following a play-off final win against Leeds United AFC.

• Adapted well to top-flight football and was transferred halfway through the 2006/07 season to Aston Villa, where he impressed in his first full term, earning a place in the official Premier League Team of the Year and winning his first three caps – all as a substitute – for England.

• Failed to make England's 2010 FIFA World Cup squad despite a consistent level of performance for Villa but was introduced for UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying; after scoring his first international goal in a February 2011 friendly away to Denmark, he became a regular in the side, his three goals playing a major part in the team's successful qualification.

• Left Villa for Manchester United in June 2011 on a five-year contract and got off to an excellent start, scoring his first two goals for the Red Devils in an 8-2 defeat of Arsenal FC and marking his UEFA Champions League debut with a last-minute equaliser during a 3-3 home draw with FC Basel 1893.

• Won his first Premier League title in 2012/13, after starting all four of England's games at UEFA EURO 2012, where he hit the crossbar in the quarter-final penalty shoot-out defeat to Italy.
