U18s beat Sunderland

09/01/2015  Comments (4)  jump
Everton's U18s earned a 1-0 win at Sunderland's Academy of Light thanks to Michael Donohue's first-half strike.

The victory owed much to an excellent display in goal by Ciaran O'Loughlin as well, though, who made saves to deny Jordan Blinco and Dan Pybus and a goal line clearance by James Graham to keep the Black Cats at bay.

Everton U18s: O'Loughlin, Yates, Robinson, Walsh, Thorniley, Graham, Donohue, Charsley, Brewster, Broadhead, Holland.

Which youngsters have come up through the ranks to the first in recent years; Barkley, Browning, Garbutt. In a short period; Vaughan, Gosling, Baxter, Duffy... good ones we've let go too soon Mustafi, possibly Jutkiewich.

That's nine potential first team players? Some had bench potentials and try to push for first team.

In a year, I hope we get to see couple of youngsters stepping way up and push the first team.

You missed Rodwell and Anichebe off your list.

Also, Gosling never actually came 'through the ranks'. He was signed from Plymouth Argyle.

Thanks John Daley. If it wasn't for injuries, Rodwell would still be interesting to have on our team. Anichebe was a supersub two seasons ago, right? Had the best percentage in PL for game time and goals/shot on goals? Seems like the academy been doing well and hopefully continue to do that.
