Mixed emotions for Lerpoolian at Anfield

A judicious transfer from Crewe Alexandra to Cardiff City a year ago has led to Perry Ng (2013 Selwyn's) making a roundabout debut at Anfield in this season's FA Cup 4th round match.

Very much the pivotal player in the College's Independent Schools' Football Association U16 Small Schools' Shield successful cup runs back in 2012 (runners-up) and 2011 (winners), Perry progressed to Crewe Alexandra where, after breaking into the team in 2015, he played for five seasons, ending up as Club Captain. His performances led to considerable interest in him from clubs higher up the league pyramid in the Championship. During the transfer window in January 2021, he secured a move to Cardiff City, where he has featured regularly in defence.



On Sunday, his Cardiff City team faced Liverpool at Anfield in the FA Cup 4th round, and Perry was involved as a member of Cardiff's back unit, which preserved a clean sheet against Liverpool's star-studded forward line in the first half. The second half proved more difficult for the team in blue, but The Lerpoolians, in congratulating Perry on his appearance, hope that he didn't find the experience of pitting his wits against Liverpool's latest multi-million pounds Colombian signing, Luis Diaz, too harrowing.
