U21s lose to Man City

by | 12/04/2015  Comments (3)  jump

Everton Under-21s were denied at the death as Manchester City struck late to snatch a 2-1 win at Southport.

David Henen had opened the scoring shortly before the break but this was cancelled out immediately by Jorge Intima.

And the Young Blues' first domestic action in over a month ended in disappointment following George Glendon's winner for the visitors just three minutes from the end.

The result leaves Everton occupying 11th place in the table, though David Unsworth's side have games in hand over most teams in the league.

Everton U21s: Griffiths, Connolly (89' Walsh), Robinson, Ledson, Browning, Galloway, Kenny, Davies, Dyson (83' Charsley), Dowell (65' Donohue), Henen.
Subs not used: Hunt, Langton.

I wonder what the priorities are for the U18/U21 sides as they've suddenly hit a raft of games with Dallas, U18 final competition, U21 league plus U21 PL knockout competition. It looks like at least six U18s played for the U21s and no doubt will play mid week.

But the U18 league looks like it's there for the taking (and back to Dallas next year) if they include their best players. And no doubt a few of the U21s will be pencilled in for the first team squad for end-of-season games.

I think you are right there, Phil, it looks like Liam Walsh played in both of these games yesterday.

In a way the U18s is more important. The U21 league is undermined by the fact that so many players are being sent away on loan all the time, it's very hard to keep any kind of consistency. If we win the U18 league for the second year in a row, I think that will be an indication of the excellent work the academy is doing.

Henen must be close to top scorer for the U21s... I wonder if we might see him before the season ends. Not sure if he would be able to handle playing lone striker for us but couldn't do a lot less than Kone in his last couple of outings.

I really hope we get glimpses of Ledson, Galloway, Kenny and Henen in the next couple of months. And surely more than a glimpse of Garbutt. (I really hope they are doing all they can to get this lad to sign a new contract!)
