Five pre-season fixtures for Everton Under-21s have been announced.
David Unsworth's team will play away matches in July against Burscough, Wrexham, Rhyl, Southport and Tranmere Rovers.
The Young Blues' first fixture will be a trip to Victoria Park to face Burscough on Wednesday 8 July, with a 7:30pm kick-off.
Three days later, on Saturday 11 July, the Under-21s will then be in action against Wrexham. A 3pm kick-off is scheduled at the Racecourse Ground.
This is followed by a trip to the Corbett Sports Stadium to play Rhyl on Wednesday 22 July. Kick-off is 7:45pm.
At 3pm on Saturday 25 July, the Under-21s will face Southport at the Merseyrail Community Stadium, before travelling to Prenton Park on Wednesday 29 July, 7:45pm kick-off, to play neighbours Tranmere Rovers.
A proposed sixth friendly against TNS has not yet been confirmed despite the recent announcement from the Welsh club.
The Under-21s squad reported back for pre-season at the beginning of this week and have now jetted out to Austria for a training camp.
More details on their trip to Obertraun is available here.

With us since the age of10, by his own admission absolutely in awe of the first team squad and has great difficulty believing he deserves to be with them. Hibbert has been trying to get him to see things differently but it has not been easy. After a promising start to the season he appears to have gone backwards and this latest request to join up with his young mates on the U21 tour is not something I wanted to hear.
Despite several loan spells, Lundstram always had a maturity problem and now heÂs gone. Stubbs said it was his biggest headache with youngsters. Some mature a lot later than others. eg Stones and Barkley. Judging by his recent interview, young Ross has still some way to go.
I hope Browning makes it. HeÂs a good young lad with pace and ability but needs to find that extra self belief which separates the winners from the losers. Go to it young man.

I always remember Cliff Marshall, he never had the confidence to believe in his natural footballing skills. In one game, he was substituted and it looked to me he couldnÂt get off the pitch quick enough.

A loan at a Championship club where he will be a regular starter all season could be the best thing for him. Still not sure whether the club see him long term as a RB or a CB. Hopefully they know either way.
