On 2 February 2007, it was reported that Huth had signed a two and a half year contract with Liverpool's Academy.[2] Huth became the first Paraguayan to join Liverpool FC, and was coached by Gary Ablett.[3] Huth himself stated that his career highlight was the moment when he signed for the club,[4] and was soon after put up to live with a local family which aided him to learn English faster.[5] Being part of the Liverpool U18 and reserve squad, he joined players such as Astrit Ajdarević, András Simon, Zsolt Poloskei, Péter Gulácsi and Adam Hammill, as well as South Americans Sebastián Leto, Emiliano Insua, Lucas Leiva and Gabriel Paletta. Huth played in a 4–1 victory against Blackburn Rovers on 22 March 2007, where he was substituted onto the field in the 60th minute for Fabio Aurelio.[6] In the same fixture, Liverpool's reserve-team also featured big name players such as Robbie Fowler, Boudewijn Zenden, Jermaine Pennant, Javier Mascherano, Gabriel Paletta, Emiliano Insua, Alvaro Arbeloa and Jerzy Dudek.[7] Huth would play for Liverpool's reserve team for the second half of the 2006–07 FA Premier Reserve League, which saw Liverpool finish in fifth position of the Reserve League North table with 26 points.

2007–08 season

The 2007–08 Premier Reserve League also saw Liverpool's reserve team attract the highest attendance of 10, 546 in a fixture against Manchester United on 26 February.
