Judging by the sheer number of trophies paraded at Goodison through-out the season, I thought it was the law that any Everton youth team wins every tournament they enter.

Given the number of youth team trophies won in the last few years, begs the question why so few players are making it into the first team...

For family reasons I missed the Milk Cup for the first time in years. For what it's worth, in relation to how players develop, the young Franny Jeffers is the best player I have ever seen. I have also heard rave reviews this year about a lad called, I believe, Liam Walsh. I hope I have got the name right because the guy who told me about him knows his stuff.

When the papers were full of articles in March about Moyes being ten years at the club, one of them mentioned in passing the fact that the under 14 team as attracting serious hype. It would now be this team, I wonder what people have heard about this set of players.

I do know quite a bit about this group of players. It is the group that DM referred to a while back.

The reason I know a little about them is that my nephew plays for the U14 academy side and he is one of 4 who have been named in the England U16 training squad.

They are regarded from what the coaches are reported to say about them to be the best crop that we have had since the 1998 squad which included Richard Dunne, Osman, Hibbert, Jeffers, Cadamarteri.

They've all got a long way to go and I'm certainly not going to name any names as there's already a lot of pressure on these lads as it is

I certainly think that the lads who are going away with England and a couple of others who I was surprised weren't picked have got a terrific chance.

Many of these lads are Liverpool supporters by upbringing and Liverpool have been trying to poach a few of them for ages but they choose to stay, I think because they feel at home at Everton.
No worries with my nephew though. I've been taking him to Goodison since he was 7 and is a season ticket holder with me.
