Juan Ignacio "Nacho" Huertas Ortiz joined the reds in the summer of 2011 after impressing during a trial period in which he scored four goals in two games.


A cultured player who is most comfortable playing just off the striker, 'Nacho' is predominantly left footed but can play on either side. A combination of red tape and injury meant his Anfield career got off to a slow start - he had to wait until February 2012 to make his first appearance for the under 18s, but was a regular in the side for the rest of the season, scoring three goals in eight games (two of them from the penalty spot).


In the summer of 2012, with a number of reserve players away with the senior squad for the tour of North America, 'Nacho' was given some opportunities to play with the Reds' second string, and scored the winning goal with his first touch just seconds after coming on to replace Marc Pelosi against Chester City's first team.
