The young Everton goalkeeper, who has done most of his work for the Under-18s and is on the fringe of making the step up to the Under-21s, has had spells at Northwich Victoria and Colwyn Bay earlier this season, and will now continue his development by playing in the National League.

Green, still a teenager (he doesn't turn 20 until January 2), made four appearances for Oldham but hasn't featured since September 19.
The League One club have issued a two-line statement on their website saying: "Midfielder George Green has been released from his contract by mutual consent. We wish George all the best for the future."
What a shame for a lad who at the age of 15 looked as if he could be one of the stars but alas it was not to be.

Some of these kids can have made their first million before they make the first team - surely that's wrong? But just as the monied clubs can throw wages at established stars to attract them, it's the same with the promising youngsters. It used to be a terraced house for your parents, which wasn't exactly ethical at the time either.

I can't speak to the specifics, but I feel sure each case must be very individual: how they react to the lavish rewards and the luscious temptations must vary widely from one to another, along with a host of personal psychological variables.

Maybe too much football at a young age makes them emotionally immature and unable to cope with pressure.

As time goes by though, they can find themselves overtaken by the late developers.

That's not to say the smaller guys can't make it. There are plenty around but they have been allowed to develop and can hold their own.
What about Everton? Rooney, Rodwell, Barkley, Galloway and Browning. Now there's a fine bunch. The only one under 6'-1" is built like a Tiger tank.
