 FA PREMIER YOUTH ACADEMY LEAGUE

  
(Not yet updated) The FA Premier Youth Academy Under-17s League set-up has four regional groups of 10 teams each:

  Group A (NW)     Group B (NE)   Group C (SE)    Group D (SW)
  Blackburn Rvrs   Barnsley       Aston Villa     Bristol City  
  Bolton Wndrs     Derby County   Arsenal         Chelsea  
  Crewe Alexandra  Huddersfield T Birmingham C    Crystal Pal
  Everton          Leeds United   Charlton Ath    Fulham   
  Liverpool        Leicester C    Coventry City   QPR         
  Manchester Utd   Middlesbrough  Ipswich Town    Reading
  Manchester City  Newcastle Utd  Millwall        Southampton
  Stoke City       Notts Forest   Norwich         Tottenham H
  Wolverhampton W  Sheffield Wed  Peterborough    West Ham Utd
  Wrexham          Sunderland     Watford         Wimbledon   

The season started with some inter-group matches against teams from the farthest (geographically) regional groups.  For Everton, that meant a game with a team in Groups C, and D.  Everton then played three teams from the closest Group A.

For the main part of the season, Everton played each of the other teams in the local Group A, both home and away.  They finished up playing each of the remaining teams in Group B just once, giving 28 matches in all.  By finishing top of their regional Group table, Everton progressed direct to the semi-final of the national playoffs, where they lost to Nottingham Forest.

Steve Milne: I was going to have a look at the U-19s this morning but, when we got to the City academy training ground, one of the pitches was waterlogged and the game was postponed (to be played now on Friday afternoon).  So this was my first look at the U-17s this season.

We lost 2-0 — a bit unfair, I thought, as we had just as much possession as City buy they finished their chances better than we did.  Here are the best bits:

  • 9' Everton's Hopkins (who ran his socks off all game) saw his shot pushed around the post from distance.
  • 12' Hopkins again the playmaker, ran from midfield, took on the defenders, cut in the right, lifted his shot well over the bar.
  • 20' who else but Hopkins, shot from 25/30 yds but well wide
  • 30' Against the run of play, we go a goal down.  A cross in the Everton box from the left, Everton failed to clear the ball; Ireland unmarked, no white shirt closing him down, he let fly and Gallagher had no chance.

Half time: Manchester City 1 - 0 Everton

  • 48' Hopkins, with a terrific right-footed shot from the edge of the area, hit the base of the post.
  • 52' 2-0 down, Bennett from distance; no-one again closing the player down, another left-footed shot.
  • 60' Within a couple of minutes of coming on, Fowler with an Andy Gray type diving header just past the post.
  • 89' Hopkins again still running, ran at the defenders, from the right side of the area, shot just wide of the nearside post.
