A member of the Finch Farm Academy since the age of 11, Sebastian Quirk signed his first professional contract with Everton in 2020, a
Described as technically assured and versatile, he scored four times and created five more goals in 13 games for the Under-18s side in 2019-20.
That earned him the step up to the Under-23s under David Unsworth where he made a further four more appearances before the season was ended prematurely by the Covid-19 shutdown.
Quirk was expected to go on and cement his place in Unsworth's
2020-21 season side but it didn't quite work out like that for him, as
he was only selected for a handful of starts until February, when he
appears to have sustained a season-ending injury. He would finally
undergo surgery in April 2021 and his recovery would extend well
into Season 2021-22, before he made his first appearance as a sub for
the U23s at the end of October.
He played his way back to full fitness over a number of U23
appearances, and did enough to earn a 1-year contract extension in
May 2022 and then a spot on the plane to Australia when the Blues played two games Down Under during the break for the World Cup in November.
Ultimately, however, it was felt that he would be better served by moving on and he joined Accrington
Stanley on a permanent basis in January 2023.
