As the title suggests (or doesn't suggest), the story is about young English trainee, Jacob Sebastian Smith, giving an account of his career, from 14-year-old "starlet" to living legend (hopefully!).

He favours playing for Manchester United, and for some reason, doesn't prefer the Netherlands (i chose it at random.)

I will still be doing my United save, although that will be bigger updates on the weekends.

Hope you enjoy this!

Thanks to Pr1cey17 for the original idea!

Smith signs for Celtic

View attachment 327201

Promising young striker, Jacob Smith, has signed for Scottish champions Celtic, on a 5-year youth contract. Smith is said to be relishing the chance to kickstart his career.



Smith scores brace in friendly win

View attachment 327202

Jacob Smith scored twice in the second half in a friendly win over Middlesbrough. Although only 14 years old, Smith seems to be impressing Celtic manager Neil Lennon enough to give him first team chances.

Shock call-up pays off

View attachment 327218

Jacob Smith was called-up to the England U21 squad in a shock announcement by manager Stuart Pearce.

(Smith's call-up was only less surprising than the fact that the squad contained no keepers - massive error by me :mad: - i didn't load enough leagues, so bear with me for a season, i'll have much better and detailed updates up next season.)

Smith scored his first international goal against Romania U21's in an U21 friendly, with a well timed finish from close range. It seems Jacob Smith is already going places.

Smith's progress halted by injury

View attachment 327262

Jacob Smith was having a fine game in the NextGen Series, having equalised for Celtic U19's against Aston Villa Reserves, but was forced to leave the field with fractured ribs, which leaves him sidelined him for 7 weeks.

The injury also thwarts his chance of another U21 call-up.

Smith breaks record after record

View attachment 327277 View attachment 327279 View attachment 327281

Jacob Smith has broken 3 records in a month, first by becoming Celtic's youngest ever player, then by breaking the same record in the SPL, and finally, becoming the youngest ever goalscorer in the SPL with his first senior goal in a 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock.

Smith also gained a call-up to the England U21 squad, and scored a brace against Marseille U19's in the NextGen Series, although the Celtic youth squad bowed out of the tournament in the first knockout round.

How did England manage to win without a 'keeper?

End-of-Season Review

Smith scored against both St. Mirren and Motherwell in the SPL as Neil Lennon's team took the league by storm.

Tottenham sign Smith

View attachment 327508

Tottenham Hotspur have signed Celtic's 15-year-old striker, Jacob Smith, for an inflated fee of £1.8m.
Smith has agreed to sign a professional contract in 2015, although the same agreement was in place at Celtic.

Celtic reportedly rejected an offer from Tottenham's local rivals, Chelsea, as it did not meet their valuations.


Smith called-up to U19 Squad


View attachment 327509

England U19's manager Noel Blake has gone for a more inexperienced line-up for the tournament in Lithuania, with Jacob Smith expected to be named as captain of the U19's.

Unfortunately, I cannot continue this story because of my commitments with school and continuous exams.

I hope you enjoyed reading it while it lasted.

Thanks for the comments.
