Blues recall Duffus from Bury

by | 24/11/2014  Comments (4)  jump
Everton have ended early Courtney Duffus's loan spell with Bury and the 19 year-old will be available for the U21s' Premier League International Cup group game against Celtic tomorrow evening.

Duffus, whose loan at Gigg Lane was due to run until January, made two starts and three substitute appearances for the Shakers after joining them at the end of October.

His Finch Farm teammate Hallam Hope's own loan spell with Bury continues.

None of our youngsters out on loan have enhanced their reputations IMO. It seems Roberto is right about there being three ready for promotion. I would say Garbutt, Browning and perhaps Galloway.

I would say it would be very difficult going out on loan from a club like Everton, at the minute. Our playing style is so different to most teams, but even if a kid doesn't do great it can still be a success long term.

Only 19, it will have given him a different insight into professional football, and that alone can be of great benefit. He has now played senior football, which is an achievement in itself, and it might make him realise how hard he will have to work if he wants to play for Everton.

It is not about playing style, it is about loaning him or them to a club that can afford him regular playing time.

I do not care if he plays for League One, but he and any other youngster needs regular games, the feel of being in a competetive arena.

Being on a bench for a Championship club clearly will not help any youngster!!!

Time for Martinez and Unsworth to re-evaluate where their youngsters will get to play or not. They have missed badly so far this season with all the loan clubs bar Blackpool and Lundstram.

I have followed youth football long enough to know that without regular games every week or so then their progress will slow up, and that time you can never get back!

It is a delicate scale thing, the balance between playing at the highest possible level, and regular first team football.

Time for Martinez to pick the right loan club next time!

Just like Atsu, Jimmy?

Doesn't matter where you go on loan, you have got to be up to the job for that particular team, otherwise you won't play.
