It's been 10 years since an impressive group of children defeated Arsenal Liverpool 6-2 on their way to a memorable double in the 2009 FA Youth Cup final.

Jack Wilshere and Francis Coquelin played for Arsenal and Tom Ince and Andre Wisdom for Liverpool – but most of their former teammates are in the lower league or abroad, while others have completely abandoned the game.

Here, Sports mail Look at what happened to those who played in this memorable cup final a decade ago …

James Shea

Like many of these players, Shea never represented the club in leadership positions. However, he managed to bring five Champions League games for the Gunners on the bench.

After engaging in non-league football, Shea won a 2014 promotion to AFC Wimbledon and spent three years there. He played a role in the rise of the club in the League One in 2016 and moved to Luton a year later.

He established himself as the # 1 Hatters and played 46 appearances this season, when they won the League One and ascended to the championship.

Craig Eastmoon

Eastmond seemed to be a member of the team that really had an impact on the first team, and joined a handful of them in 2009 in a professional contract with Arsenal.

He made his senior debut in a 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the League Cup and then received minutes in the Premier League. In January 2010, he received a new contract, with Arsene Wenger appreciated his versatility.

In the 2010/11 season, however, he found it difficult to find football for the first team, and he changed to loan to Millwall. There, too, Eastmond fought and flew down the pyramid with spells in Wycombe, Colchester, and Yeovil.

In September 2015, Eastmond signed for National League South Sutton and continues to play for the National League Club. He was part of the team that played in the 2017 FA Cup against the Gunners.

Tom Cruise

Not the Hollywood actor who jumped out of the plane in Mission Impossible, but Cruise, who played Olympiacos only once in a Champions League match of lesser importance.

He was shown the door 18 months later and managed to win a deal with Sampdoria, but they were not impressed enough to offer him a permanent contract.

Cruise also briefly trained with New England Revolution and later signed for Torquay United. In 2016 he began training as a certified public accountant.

Kyle Bartley

Bartley's physical qualities made him a perfect backcourt player, but he struggled to bring his technical side to a level that satisfied Arsene Wenger.

He played only a seniors appearance for the club, also outside of Olympiacos. After loan from Sheffield United and Rangers Bartley was finally sold to Swansea.

Bartley had a mixed time in Wales, which included loans for Birmingham and Leeds. By now he has found a home in West Brom. He completed 28 league games and was impressive when he just missed a spot in the play-off final.

Luke Ayling

Similar to Bartley, Ayling's only chance in the first team at Arsenal was Olympiacos, but he did not even come off the bench.

In May 2010, he moved to Yeovil and spent four years there. He has done enough to earn a move to Bristol City and then drove from Ashton Gate to Leeds in 2016.

He is now a regular under Marcelo Bielsa and will be the key to his promotion hopes in the next season if the Argentinian stays with him.

Emmanuel Frimpong

Frimpong was another player who promised much, only to be seriously stopped by injuries.

The Ghanaian unfortunately suffered two cruciate ligament injuries before the age of 21 and these long layoffs have really ended his chances of forming the first team in the Emirates.

He had credit spells at Wolves, Charlton, and Fulham before finally leaving for Barnsley. Then Frimpong signed with the Russian team Ufa, before he played in Arsenal Tula, the Swedish AFC Eskilstuna and Ermis Aradippou in Cyprus for another Russian team. In March 2019 he retired due to injury.

Henri Lansbury

Arsene Wenger has always been a big fan of Lansbury and was regularly asked to train with the first team as a teenager.

Unfortunately, he has never made the necessary progress to secure a place in the first team. Despite a strike against Tottenham in 2010 in North London, he was loaned to Scunthorpe, Watford, Norwich and West Ham, before he was finally sold to Nottingham Forest.

Lansbury impressed on the City Ground, then switched to Aston Villa in January 2017 for about £ 3m. However, he had big problems with the season this season and reached the play-off final in only 308 minutes.

Francis Coquelin

Coquelin is probably the player who had the biggest success in this team. He fought initially with any impact and was loaned to Lorient and Freiburg.

In 2014, Wenger made the decision to recall Coquelin during a midfield injury crisis from Championship Club Charlton. Coquelin took the opportunity with a series of impressive performances, playing 90 minutes in a 4-0 win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup final.

His progress was stopped by a knee ligament injury the following season and he struggled to maintain the level of performance of the previous season. In 2018, Coquelin moved to La Liga club Valencia and has become a key player in midfield. This season he played 41 times, including in the semi-finals of the Europa League against Arsenal.

Jack Wilshere

Wilshere was the real star of this team and was already on the verge of first team when Arsenal won the 2009 FA Youth Cup.

In the season 2010/11 he played 49 games at Wenger and was celebrated as the future captain of his club and his country. But then Wilshere suffered a big accident with injuries that ruined his career to this day.

In June 2018 it was announced that he would leave Arsenal when his contract expired and he moved to West Ham. Wilshere was unable to maintain his fitness in his debut campaign and only appeared nine times in all competitions.

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas

During his youth career, Emanuel-Thomas was almost the complete package. He had speed to burn, scored goals, worked hard on the ball and was the leader of the team.

Despite this long list of attributes, he was never considered good enough to get a chance on the first team and was sold to Ipswich after only five missions.

He has always been in the championship and in the first division before he made a bizarre move to Thai first division side PTT Rayong in January.

Cedric Evina

The Cameroon defender failed to break Arsenal's lead and was loaned out to Oldham in 2010 before coming on as a substitute a few months later.

However, Evina tried to settle there, and quickly found herself in London and Charlton. It was difficult for him to throw Rhoys Wiggins off the pitch before leaving for Doncaster three years later.

After a decent start to life in Keepmoat, Evina fell from grace under Darren Ferguson and was loaned to Crawley in 2017. Notts County signed him in 2018, but he could not impress and was just released.

Gilles Sunu

Sunu was another player on this trip to Olympiacos and replaced Wilshere in the 76th minute.

Another, not so gladly seen by Wenger, Sunu first went to Derby and then to Lorient in France. He obviously did something right when they signed him in summer 2011 for a permanent contract.

After four years he went to Evian, but enjoyed only a short stay on the shores of Lake Geneva, when he left only six months later to Angers. Today he plays in Turkey with BB Erzurumspor, where he is in touch with Manchester United former winger Gabriel Obertan.

LIVERPOOL

Dean Bouzanis

Given his usual solid estimation, it was a great compliment that Rafa Benitez once described the Australian goalkeeper as the best in the world in his age group.

Unfortunately, his way to the first team was blocked by the impenetrable Pepe Reina and he left Anfield in 2011 without making a single competitive appearance.

Bouzanis played in the lower league of English football for Accrington Stanley and Oldham Athletic before returning home with Western Sydney Wanderers and Melbourne City. He has been on loan to PEC Zwolle in Holland this season.

Steven Irwin

Irwin played comfortably on the right side of the midfield or the defense, but did not manage to reach the mark for the Reds.

After its release in Liverpool in 2011, he had a bizarre set of clubs across Europe. In the summer he moved first to the Dutch club Telstar.

Irwin then moved to Finnish club FF Jaro and Danish club Aab before returning to Merseyside to play for Skelmersdale United and the Navy. He also had spells at FC United of Manchester and Stalybridge Celtic.

Jack Robinson

The left-back showed signs of success as he broke through and became the youngest player to play for Liverpool at the time.

Benitez, who was never ready to be cautious, made his debut against Hull in 2010 when he was only 16 years old.

Robinson made a total of eleven games in the first team, but was loaned to Wolves and Blackpool, before he was sold to QPR, after he was classified as not good enough. He was loaned out in Huddersfield, before he signed for the current club Nottingham Forest.

Daniel Ayala

The impressive Spaniard came from Sevilla and showed promising signs in the five senior games he contested.

He failed, however, and was loaned to Hull and Derby before he finally moved to Norwich in 2011.

The Canaries were not that impressed either and lent it to Nottingham Forest and then to Middlesbrough. He has managed to find his form on Teesside and has played almost 200 times for Boro.

Joe Kennedy

Kennedy was the captain of the team that reached the final in 2009 and played in the heart of the defense.

However, there was no chance he would ever reach the first team because he was fired in the summer immediately after the final.

Instead of pursuing another professional club, he enrolled at John Moores University instead to study sports science.

Andre wisdom

In fact, wisdom was the only member of this team that had a real impact on the senior team.

He played in 22 games for Liverpool, most of which were under Brendan Rodgers in the 2012/13 season.

Wisdom, however, was unable to tie himself to a permanent place and lent him to West Brom, Derby, Norwich and Red Bull Salzburg before signing a permanent contract for the Rams in 2017.

David Amoo

Amoo quickly flashed on the right wing and represented London as a junior at the national track and field championships of the English schools.

However, it was difficult for him to seize opportunities for the first team, and he denied his only appearance for the club against Rabotnicki in the 2010 Europa League.

Amoo was moved to the lower leagues and played for Preston, Tranmere, Carlisle, Patrick Thistle and the current club Cambridge United.

Christopher Buchtmann

There was a lot of optimism about the German winger when he arrived from Borussia Dortmund. He was even voted one of UEFA's most promising football stars by UEFA.

Unfortunately, he could not turn his potential into skills and left the club after two years on the Merseyside 2010 quickly to Fulham.

He then moved from Craven Cottage to his homeland, playing first for Cologne and then for St. Pauli, where he now plays regularly.

Lauri Dalla Valle

The Finnish striker was inclined for great things. He chose Liverpool over Chelsea and scored eight goals in the FA Youth Cup this season.

In Anfield, however, there should be no progress for him. He played a role against Rabotnicki in the Europa League, before he left the club in 2010.

The rest of his career he played in the lower divisions of England, Scotland, Norway and Belgium. Dalla Valle returned to England for a short stay at Crewe, before ending his career following his release from Serbian club Zemun.

chop up

Ince, the son of Liverpool and Manchester United midfielder Paul, wanted to make a name for himself on Merseyside.

He played only one appearance in the League Cup of the Red, before he borrowed in August 2011 to Notts County and then finally moved to Blackpool. Ince was impressed and connected with a move back to Anfield, but nothing happened.

He moved to Derby and then to Huddersfield, where he helped the club rise. Signed for Stoke last summer for £ 12m.

Alexander Kacaniklic

The Swedish winger was another one the fans hoped could cut in the first team, but he did not stay long either.

Kacaniklic left the club with Dalla Valle as part of the deal with Fulham, in which the left-back Paul Konchesky (yes, this transfer actually took place!) In the other direction changed.

The 27-year-old had been loaned out to Watford, Burnley and Copenhagen before being released by Fulham. He spent three years in Ligue 1 near Nantes but is now at Hammarby in Sweden.

Nathan Eccleston

Eccleston was a success compared to his teammates and denied nine appearances for Liverpool after his entry into the first team in 2009.

There was no real progress for him and he left the club in 2012 to switch to Blackpool after lending at Huddersfield, Charlton and Rochdale.

He left Bloomfield Road in 2014 to move with Partick Thistle north of the border before playing for Kilmarnock and the Hungarian team Bekescsaba Elore in 1912. He can now be seen in action for National League North Side Nuneaton Borough.
