Jack Dunn (born 19 November 1994) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder or forward for the Liverpool U21s.
Jack Dunn is a product of the Liverpool youth academy, having climbed through the ranks to make his debut for the Under 18s in the 2010-11 season. Dunn was still captain of the Under 16s during that season, however he was promoted up to a full-time member of the Under 18 squad for the 2011-12 season. Dunn took the Under 18s by storm, contributing an impressive number of goals from midfield, including both of Liverpool's goals in a 2-1 win against Manchester United. His first goal was scored in the first minute of the match, whilst his second was hit in injury time. By the end of the season, Dunn had hit eight goals from 20 games for the side, making him the Under 18's third top goalscorer. He also made one appearance in the NextGen Series.
A serious injury kept Dunn out of action for much of the 2012-13 season, with the midfielder only making four appearances for the U18s in the League. He was however a prominent part of the FA Youth Cup campaign, in which he netted six goals in six games from a more advanced position. He made a full step up to the U21s towards the end of the season, making nine appearances and scoring one goal.
He was integrated more fully into the U21s for the 2013-14 season, and continued his development from midfielder to striker. He finished the campaign as the U21s top goalscorer, racking up 10 goals in 19 games. He became increasingly involved in first team affairs during the season under Brendan Rodgers, however he didn't make a matchday squad during the campaign. On 14 May 2014, he came off the bench in the Liverpool first team's post-season friendly against Shamrock Rovers in Dublin, and scored with a well-struck near-post effort to seal a 4-0 win.
Dunn is tipped to have a bright future in the game. Described as an "all-round midfielder", Dunn has earnt praise for his excellent passing ability and is also recognised as a dangerous goal threat. This threat has seen him increasingly deployed as a striker to good effect by the youth sides.
