Everton Under-21s captain Jonjoe Kenny says Monday's free-entry game at Goodison will be a showcase — not only for the fans, but for Roberto Martinez.
The young Blues host Sunderland under the floodlights in a league contest that kicks off at 7pm and Kenny is looking forward to playing under the lights at Goodison Park with first-team manager Roberto Martinez watching on.
"It's another big opportunity to be back at Goodison," Kenny told evertontv. "The gaffer and all of the first-team staff will be watching us again and they've shown they are willing to give kids a chance.
"You've always got to perform, even in training, because the manager will be watching. You can't have an off-day."
Having been handed the armband for the season, Kenny has embraced the added responsibility and has his eyes on three points.
He added: "It's the best feeling you can get, being the captain at a young age and especially leading the lads out at Goodison. It's a dream. But we're really looking forward to playing Sunderland. We know what they're about and we hope for another massive crowd with it being free tickets for the fans."
The mini-matchday is free for all fans to attend and tickets can be obtained by visiting the Goodison Road or Park End Box Office, Everton One and Everton Two until midday on Monday, 1 December. (Any child under the age of 11 will need to be accompanied by an adult.)

What the fuck has the war chest got to do with the U21s?
We have 2 internationals on the pitch and some of the most talented youngsters in the game reputedly.
What are we doing? Passing it aimlessly across the back and having great difficulty in getting out of our own half.
