Liam Higgins joined the Everton Academy in December 2017 from Mold
Alexander FC at the tender age of just 15, and graduated to the U18 side
in July 2019 as a First Year Scholar. Liam's 17th birthday
came and went in January 2020 without any word of a professional
contract. Higgins was elevated briefly to the U23 squad in preparation for the 2020-21 season but only sat on the bench as an unused sub in a
couple of pre-season friendlies and the first Premier League 2 game,
without making his debut at this level until he came on as a late
substitute in the final Premier League Cup group game in February 2020. Higgins played in all but the last of the
U18 Premier League games in the 2020-21 season up until the midwinter
break. But he was subbed off at half-time against Wolves in early
December and only returned to action for the last two games of the
season as a result of a serious hamstring injury.
In June 2021,
Everton announced that the club was extending Liam's Scholarship in the
Academy for third year. But in the next season, he would manage to play
just 3 games as a sub, sitting out another 2 on the bench.
He signed what Everton said was his first professional contract for 1
year in June 2022, but again failed to make any of the U21 teamsheets for
the early games of the new season..
