The Saints pulled a goal back with 19 minutes to go through Bevis Mugabi.
The Blues' second string began the evening in sixth place in the U21s Premier League, four places behind Southampton, but with Roberto Martinez, Graeme Jones and Joe Royle watching on from the stands of the Merseyrail Stadium, Henen fired home early to give the home side the lead.
Kenny doubled the lead with a header in the 14th minute after Everton had seen two more efforts cleared off the line by Southamton before Galloway glanced home Ryan Ledson's cross to make it 3-0 with less than half an hour gone.
Courtney Duffus would have a goal ruled out just before half time as well as David Unsworth's side remained in the ascendency.
Everton: Griffiths, Jones, Connolly, Galloway, Ledson, Williams (Dyson 83'), Junior, Dowell (Walsh 66'), C Duffus (Charsley 75'), Henen
Subs: Hewelt, Langton, Charsley

DonÂt leave them to rot in Ressies forever.

Agree Colin, we have some of the best youngsters coming through who could show the first team a thing or two on playing to win! I see Ledson got his obligatory yellow again, can just see him and Besic dominating the midfield in future.

Notice Junior was in the line-up. It doesn't look like he impressed enough on his trial at Celtic recently.

David Moyes was on Radio 5L tonight highlighting the difference having a B team playing in Spanish 3rd division makes in helping to develop youngsters. Maybe the likes of Browning and Garbut will get a run out.

Difficult these days with the way football is going with pressure on league places and subsequent loss of income etc.
Some might not be good enough. However, it would be great to see them before they get loaned out and then subsequently moved on.

The Championship is the best place as the nearest imitation to the EPL and, if they can succeed there, like Coleman, then they will have proved themselves ready. We already have a number out on loan at various places with Pennington doing well at Coventry and McAleny impressing on his debut for Cardiff apparently.
I am surprised that Browning has not gone on loan to a Championship club but perhaps Martinez thinks he may be needed here give Sylvain's fall from grace.

I think that Martinez's hand may be forced between now and the end of the summer in terms of the younger players. If we are going to be nothing more than mid-table come the start of April, then he may start playing them. A clear out is due in the summer: Hibbert's age is against him, Distin's contract is ending, Osman's bad muscle injury may end his career, Pienaar's age and injuries may call time on his Everton career. That's four players, two defenders and two midfielders that will need replacing.
Other players, such as Baines, Coleman, McCarthy and Mirallas may be poached or look to go. (Baines may be a bit of a stretch but it's possible.)
A new stadium to be saved up for... ٧m going to Chelsea as part of the Lukaku deal and there may not be a lot left for transfers.
This Under 21 squad has been highly rated for years and may just be the answer to all of the above.

Just watched the goals Â– Henen's showed a real burst of pace and cool finish.

I think Dave's referring to Dowell while Grant is on loan at Motherwell, having been encouraged to go there by a former Motherwell player, Roberto Martinez.
