U-18 League Match No 1
Saturday 16 August 2014
Everton U18s: Hewelt; Birch, Connolly, Bainbridge (46' Walsh), Thorniley; Graham, Davies, Charsley, Brewster,
Newell (46' Dyson), Dowell.
Everton Under-18s started the new season in stylish fashion as a Delial Brewster hat-trick helped to secure a 6-3 win over Middlesbrough at Finch Farm. The victory was even more impressive considering the young Blues were trailing 2-0 after 32 minutes. But Kevin Sheedy’s side launched a superb comeback to run out convincing winners.
Harry Charsley made it 2-1 at half-time before Everton went goal crazy in the second period. Brewster notched two quick goals after the restart to turn the game on its head and then Calum Dyson made it 4-2. Brewster then completed his treble and Tom Davies hit the sixth. Middlesbrough scored a third late on but Everton were already out of sight.

U-18 League Match No 2
Saturday 23 August 2014
Everton U18s maintained their 100% record with a fine 1-0 away to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.
The reigning youth champions netted the decisive goal just before the half-time break as Callum Connolly was on hand to convert a well worked team move.

Friday 5 September 2014
Everton U18s: Hewelt; Yates,
Birch, Thorniley, Edge (50' Mellen); Davies, Bainbridge, Holland; Brewster,
Dyson (45' Broadhead), Newell.
Everton Under-18s were desperately unfortunate to emerge from their opening Premier League Champions Cup encounter with Real Madrid empty-handed, using all of the small 13-man squad available.
The young Blues were entered into the six-team tournament and pitted in a group alongside the Spanish giants and hosts Tottenham. West Ham, Liverpool and Benfica make up the participants in Group B.
Despite controlling the hour-long contest on Friday morning, it was a
rare attempt from Madrid that provided the only goal in the second half.
Everton looked strong and alert against the youth squad of the European
champions and foraged the best opportunities.
|Tottenham Hotspur 5 - 1 Everton|
U-18 Premier League Champions Cup Group A
Friday 5 September 2014
Everton U18s: team.
Kicking off just two hours after the Blues' opener against Real Madrid, a tired and depleted squad of just 13 players faced a fully-fresh Spurs side. And Kevin Sheedy's men showed signs of fatigue from their unfortunate 1-0 defeat to the Spaniards, finding themselves 4-0 down at the interval.
Nathan Broadhead pulled one back midway through the second half as he rose highest to nod home, but the Londoners would grab another in the closing stages.
Spurs would go on to claim the trohpy, beating Benfica, while Everton apparently played Liverpool for the wooden spoon (no further info on this match).
|Everton 1 - 5 Derby County|
U-18 League Match No 4
Saturday 13 September 2014
Everton Under-18s were made to pay for missed opportunities as Derby County condemned the young Blues to a 5-1 home defeat.
The Blues fell behind within just three minutes but went on to control the first half; their efforts were rewarded when Callum Dyson equalised before the break. But they conceding a goal within the opening minutes of the second half and ended up shipping another three goals.

Holland (55' Newell).
Everton Under-18s thrashed Blackburn Rovers 4-0 away on Saturday. Everton were three goals up at the midway point as Rovers struggled to deal with their high tempo football. Callum Connolly set the ball rolling on 20 minutes when he cut in from the left and found the target with a right-footed shot from just outside the area.
Five minutes later and the lead was doubled thanks to Liam Walsh who tapped in following good build-up play from Calum Dyson. Everton's third arrived on 35 minutes when a short corner was intricately worked to Harry Charsley who converted at the near post.
Blackburn rallied at the start of the second period but the game was put to bed when Charsley ran through and executed a fine lobbed finish from 16 yards out on the hour mark to completed the scoring.
|Everton 3 - 1 Sunderland|
U-18 League Match No 6
Saturday 27 September 2014
Everton U18s: Team
Line-Up Not Available. Hunt, Walsh, Charsley, Dyson, (Holland)
A brace from substitute Nathan Holland helped Everton Under-18s make it back-to-back wins after a 3-1 victory over Sunderland on Saturday lunchtime. The Blues began the game on the front foot and Harry Charsley was denied an early goal when his left-footed effort struck the crossbar. After good work from Calum Dyson and the impressive Liam Walsh, Charsley had another opportunity but he failed to get his shot on target.
But it was a case of third time lucky for Charsley when the ball broke to him on the edge of the box and the midfielder stroked the ball into the bottom corner to put the Toffees ahead on the half hour mark. Everton started the second half just like the first – dominating possession and pressing high up the pitch – with the lively Charsley and Dyson both going close with headed efforts.
But, against the run of play, Sunderland got themselves back into the game when Everton goalkeeper Connor Hunt could only push a Denver Humes strike into the path of Andrew Nelson who slotted home to equalise for the visitors on 65 minutes. Both teams searched for the winner and with just 10 minutes to go substitute Holland found the top corner with a spectacular curling effort to give the Blues a deserved lead.
The visitors looked for a late equaliser but from a Sunderland free-kick Everton worked the ball well to set up a break-away and leave Holland with just the goalkeeper to beat. The pacy winger was brought down by Greg Purvis, resulting in a penalty which he himself stepped up to score his second goal of the game and confirm all three points for his side.

Everton started well
and enjoyed the lion's share of possession in the opening 15 minutes, but
were unable to take advantage of good set-piece opportunities. With the
scores still level, Bolton crept into the game as the half grew on but the
hosts would be undone by a flurry of goals before the interval.

U-18 League Match No 8
Saturday 11 October 2014
Everton U18s: Griffiths,
Connolly, Kenny, Thorniley, Graham, Ledson, Williams, Davies, Dyson, Newell,
The young Blues took control of the game from the first whistle and
they could have been two ahead within the first 10 minutes, with Connolly
and Jonjoe Kenny both going close with headers. Everton continued to apply
the pressure with Liam Walsh heavily involved in the early exchanges, and
it was he who combined well with Calum Dyson to create an opening for
Williams but the midfielder couldn’t hit the target with his effort.
Everton pressed throughout, preventing Stoke to few chances during the
game, though the visitors could have got themselves back into the contest
on the half hour mark. Ryan Ledson lost the ball deep in his own half and
goalkeeper Russell Griffiths was caught off his line but an effort from
Daniel Jarvis sailed wide of the target.

The young Blues raced into a two-goal lead at the break thanks to Calum
Dyson's 15th-minute opener and a penalty from Nathan Holland. The second
period started in similar fashion to the first and Harry Charsley extended
the advantage just before the hour-mark. Dyson then sealed the win soon
after with his second of the afternoon. A stunning free-kick in the dying
seconds did deny the Toffees a clean sheet - but it proved nothing more
than a consolation for the hosts.

after Joe Williams had his penalty saved late in the second half.

Saturday 15 November 2014
Everton: Hewelt; Yates, Robinson (70' Myers), Williams, Thorniley; Bainbridge, Donohue (60' Broadhead), Davies; Dowell (46'
T Duffus), Dyson, Holland.
Everton Under-18s beat Manchester United 2-0 on Saturday morning to extend their unbeaten run to seven matches. Goals from Kieran Dowell and James Yates secured an impressive victory for the young Blues at Finch Farm.
Dowell's first-half opener came about after he played a neat one-two with Calum Dyson before finishing inside the penalty area. And the victory was wrapped up after the break when Yates collected possession on the right, drove inside and powered a left-footed shot into the corner.

Liverpool Senior Cup Semi-Final
Wednesday 19 November 2014
Everton U18s: Stanek, McLaughlin,
Myers, Jones, Langton, Bainbridge, Donohue, T Duffus, Dyson, Broadhead, Henen.
A solid first-half showing from the Blues: Dyson's flick-on was seized upon by Broadhead and the striker made no mistake in slotting home. Calum Dyson then curled a beauty into the top corner from 20-yards to double the advantage.
After the break, Steve Jones pulled one back for the hosts, drilling a 25-yard free-kick into the corner. Jack Bainbridge was then dismissed for a second bookable offence. David Henen then side-footes home from the edge of the area to restore the Blues' two-goal cushion.
However, Ryan Cox converts from two-yards for the home side after a goalmouth scramble. They struck again when Steve Jones's powerful free-kick was fumbled and the rebound was poked in to bring the scores level.
Nathan Broadhead found a yard of space, but his effort cannoned back off the post. But then the Blues were reduced to nine men as Michael Donohue picked up a second yellow card. Then Ryan Cox sent Jindrich Stanek the wrong way to give the hosts the lead with seven minutes remaining and the Blues were knocked out of this season's Liverpool Senior Cup..

Saturday 6 December 2014
Everton U18s: Hewelt, Yates, Robinson,
Walsh, Thorniley, Connolly, Duffus, Davies, Dyson, Broadhead, Charsley.
Midfielder Liam Walsh had a big hand in the opening goal, intercepting possession in the visitors’ half before sending a through ball to the very impressive Nathan Broadhead, who turned his defender brilliantly and fired his effort past Charlie Albinson to give the Toffees the lead on 23 minutes.
A game with few chances, Everton looked to have kept City frustrated but with 15 minutes remaining Paulo Fernandes found Javiaro Derosun on the edge of the box and he supplied a spectacular curling strike to bring his side level. But just minutes later the Blues were back in front.
Connolly stopped a City attack with a clearance out to the right-hand side and the defender surged forward before receiving the ball again 25-yards out from goal. He beat the defender superbly and struck a left-footed effort past the City goalkeeper. Everton withstood late pressure from City to clinch an important three points

Saturday 20 December 2014
Moor Farm Training Centre
Everton: Hewelt; Yates, Connolly,
Bainbridge, Thorniley; Walsh, Charsley; Donohue, Holland, Broadhead, Dyson.
After a slow start, the young Blues found themselves two goals behind with half-time approaching at the Moor Farm Training Centre. But Callum Connolly, who was operating at left-back, gave the visitors hope, rounding off a flowing move to make it 2-1 at the break.
The Toffees came racing out of the blocks in the second period, but failed to convert sustained periods of pressure into goals. Derby were then awarded a penalty against the run of play after a counter-attacking move which started in their own half. The penalty was converted, before the young Rams added a fourth with five minutes remaining to resign the Under-18s to their first league defeat since early September.

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.

The young Blues started on the front foot and they could have been
ahead within 90 seconds of the kick-off when Michael Donohue cut inside
from the right but his effort whistled just past the post. In a cagey
opening half, both sides created few chances and, despite late pressure
from the Toffees, the game remained goalless heading into half-time.

Everton U18s blew a two-goal lead and went down to 10 men under ridiculous circumstances, giving up a late goal that allowed Man Utd U18s to secure a late 3-2 win in the FA Premier U18 League on Saturday.
Nathan Broadhead opened the scoring for Everton before Liam Walsh's free-kick made it 2-0. The hosts clawed one back before the break through Ruairi Croskery and on the hour mark they were level when Marcus Rashford ran through to score.
Liam Walsh was then dismissed for a second yellow card for moving the ball a couple of yards for a free-kick after the ref had told him not to. And in the final minute Croskery scored his second to win the game for Man Utd.

Just 10 minutes later, the Blues took the lead. Walsh picked out Michael Donohue on the right-hand side and the winger cleverly beat his defender before finding Dyson in the box. Firth saved the striker’s headed effort but he could only palm the ball into the path of Charsley, and the Irish midfielder tapped in from five-yards out.
And just before the half-time whistle, centre-half Bainbridge connected with Walsh’s corner to double the Blues’ lead.
Only five minutes of the second-half had been played when Dyson got his reward when he headed home Michael Donohue’s cross following good work from Bainbridge bringing the ball out of defence. Nine minutes later it was 4-0 as Walsh slotted past Andrew Firth following a fine first-time pass from captain Harry Charsley.
And the rout was complete when left-back Antonee Robinson played in Dyson who coolly fired past Firth.

U-18 Elite League Match No 1
Saturday 14 March 2015
Everton: Team. Connolly, Yates,
Graham, Dowell 2, Charsley, Dyson.
Everton U18s ran out comfortable 4-0 winners over Middlesbrough at Finch Farm today in their first game of what is now an eight-team league to decide the destiny of the 2014-15 U18s Premier League title.
Kieran Dowell grabbed a brace and there were goals apiece for Harry Charsley and Calum Dyson as the Young Blues ran riot against the team that finished nine points above them in the Northern Group this season.
It was Everton who got off to the perfect start, going ahead with barely a minute on the clock. James Graham switched the ball brilliantly to find Michael Donohue in space on the right-hand side; the winger beat his man and found Dowell in the box who supplied a terrific curling finish.
Dyson could have doubled the Blues' lead just minutes later when Donohue beat his marker and found the striker in the box but he could only steer his header over the bar. But it wouldn’t be long before the striker got himself on the scoresheet. Dowell, who was influential throughout, shrugged off a few challenges to get to the byline before picking out Dyson who slotted past Tom Dawson in the Middlesbrough goal.
The Blues had showed plenty of energy throughout the opening 45 minutes, not allowing Middlesbrough any time on the ball and with just seconds remaining forced the visitors to make a mistake deep in their own half. Midfielder Dowell was there to pick up the loose ball and he fired past the keeper to grab his second of the game and put Everton into a comfortable 3-0 half-time lead.
The second half resumed and the same theme continued with the Blues dictating proceedings. Callum Connolly picked up the ball in his own half and raced at the Middlesbrough backline before finding Dowell who was inches away from getting his hat-trick. The contest was put beyond any doubt with just 20 minutes remaining when a great passing move was finished sublimely by Charsley after right-back James Yates found the midfielder in the box.
The result keeps Everton in the hunt for a second successive U18s crown. Each team will play each other once, either home or away, with the team finishing top taking the title.

Graham, Bainbridge, Walsh, Donohue, Connolly, Dyson (90' Baningime), Dowell,
Everton Under-18s recorded their second win of the end of season mini-league with a 2-0 defeat of Chelsea. The victory at the Londonders' Cobham HQ follows last weekend's 4-0 demolition of Middlsebrough and means the young Blues have defeated the winners of the north and south sections in consecutive weeks.
James Graham's first half header and Harry Charsley's searing strike in the second half won it for the Blues. Chelsea had begun the game well and Everton had to be at their best to keep their clean sheet intact in the opening period. It meant there was a platform for central defender Graham to head in Liam Walsh's free-kick in the opening half's final minute to give the visitors the lead.
Callum Connolly and Kieran Dowell could have extended the lead in the second half before Charsley's decisive intervention with 15 minutes left.

Everton's U18s fell just short of securing back-to-back Premier League titles when they lost 1-0 at Manchester City.
Kevin Sheedy's reigning title holders travelled to the City Football Academy for their final game of the season knowing that victory would take them above Middlesbrough and back to the top of the U18s Premier League. Boro's youngsters, who had already completed their season, sat two points above the Blues.
Unfortunately, they couldn't overturn Aaron Nemane's first-half goal despite putting pressure on the City goal and had to be content with second place.
