Anthony Gordon 59

An attacking midfielder who includes dribbling and finishing among his strengths, Anthony Gordon joined Everton Academy Under-12s as and 11-year-old after being spotted playing for his local team, Frameline Juniors FC, and has represented England at Under-15 level.

He went on  an impressive goalscoring run for Everton's Under-18s in the opening few months of the 2017-18 season that brought him to the attention of the senior team management for a very special occasion. 

He became the first player to be born in the 21st Century to play for the Blues' first team when ― aged 16 years 286 days ― Gordon came on as a substitute in the  Europa League group stage dead rubber against Apollon Limassol in Cyprus. The feat on 7 December 2017 made him the sixth youngest player to ever play for Everton's first team.  

Gordon continued his goalscoring at U18 level but, as the season progressed, a niggling knee problem required surgery in March 2018 that ended his season early and his recovery from this would affect his availability the following season. 

Since then, the 18-year-old has has had to reacclimatize in both the U18s and U23s, being named more times as as sub for the U23s as he made the transition. With rumours of interest from Arsenal and the Bundesliga, Everton made sure of the youngster's future at the club with a 4-year professional contract, signed in March 2019.

He played a staring role in the FA Youth Cup tie against Sunderland at Goodison Park, scoring a beautiful curler into the far top corner to make it 3-1, and turned provider for Ellis Simms in the next round at Stoke City. 

To round off the season, he helped the U23s stay top of the Premier League 2 table but missed out on the Premier League Cup final win.
