Liverpool U23s drew 1-1 with ETO Gyor on Sunday evening, with Barnet goalkeeper Kai McKenzie-Lyle between the sticks during a likely trial spell.

Neil Critchley’s young Reds took on their Hungarian counterparts during a pre-season tour, as they prepare for another campaign in Premier League 2.

The goalkeeper who took to the field behind Randall, Whelan, George Johnston and Tony Gallacher is believed to be 20-year-old McKenzie-Lyle.

Standing at 6’7″ and with a build belying his youth, McKenzie-Lyle towered over his team-mates and opponents alike during the pre-match handshakes.

He conceded a spot-kick through Jozsef Magasfold in the first half, but produced a strong save to deny Roland Baracskai earlier in the game, providing Critchley with a glimpse of his talents.

McKenzie-Lyle has already made his first-team debut for Barnet at just 17, replacing ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Jamie Stephens in a 3-1 defeat to Portsmouth in League Two in 2015.
