Youngest Players Ever

I noticed this at the tail end of an article on the New England Revolution not picking up an option on Pat Noonan's contract. Noonan is a free man. I don't recall seeing many teams sniffing around though. Have their been? What caught my eye was the age of these kids, the youngest to play for Mexican club teams. I can't imagine what it would be like to play as a pro at age 24 let alone 14. Boston Globe

Martin Galvan, 14, became the youngest player to perform for a Primera Division Mexican club when he played for Cruz Azul in the Interliga tournament last week. Pachuca's Victor Manon, who was 14 when he entered against Cruz Azul in the 2007 Apertura season, is the youngest to have played in a Primera Division game.
