U21s register comfortable win over West Ham

, 15 January, 4comments  |  Jump to most recent
Goals by Conor McAleny and Callum Connolly helped Everton's Under-21s to a 2-0 win over the Hammers in Southport this evening.

McAleny, returning to the side after recovering from injury, fired the Blues into the lead early in the second half after Connolly had rattled the crossbar in the first period.

And Connolly wrapped up the points a few minutes later from a Conor Grant corner.

Matt Kennedy forced a good save from Spiegel in the West Ham goal and Substitute Chris Long went close as Everton continued to dominate but it finished 2-0.

Everton: Hewelt, Jones, Kenny, Browning, Connolly, Kennedy, Henen, Grant, Junior, Duffus, McAleny (Long 60')
Subs: Hunt, Dowell, Ledson, Williams.

West Ham: Spiegel, Westley, Page, Henry (Oxford, 65'), Burke, Potts, Bywater (Cullen , 65'), Poyet, Lee (Turgott, 65'), Morrison, Nasha
Subs: Oxford, Boness, Matthias, Cullen, Turgott

Very attack minded line-up. With tough guys Ledson and Williams on the bench, it's hard to work out who did the tackling in mid-field.

Good win all the same and we even scored from a corner. Whatever next.

Good work. Surprised to see Junior playing. Would have thought his time here was numbered and surely better to put in the youngsters...

Do not think Martinez would have been happy watching from the stands as not only did the U21 keep a clean sheet they scored from a corner. Keep that up boys and you will not get in the first team.

I can’t believe Martinez doesn’t have the team practice corners which is such an fundamental and integral part of the game — like tackling, heading, closing down, running as well as passing. All of these things should be practiced and worked on in training.

This is amateureish. Has he never heard about practice making perfect? Corners are part of the game you don’t just ignore it because you prefer to only focus on tippy tappy football.
