U23s lift the Liverpool Senior Cup

4 August  8 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton's Under-23 side won their second trophy of the summer thanks to a comfortable 3-0 win over Prescot Cables at Volair Park.

The Blues were in the final having beaten Widnes and Skelmersdale United in the two previous rounds which gave them a shot at adding to the SuperCupNI which they won last month.

Ryan Ledson scored from the spot to give David Unsworth's side an early lead before. Courtney Duffus netted later in the first half to make it 2-0.

Leandro Rodriguez rounded off the scoring with chipped effort in the second half.

Everton Under-23s: Hewelt; Jones, Yarney, Foulds, Robinson; Baningime, Ledson, Rodriguez (Broadhead, 61); Charsley, Dowell (Walsh, 68), C Duffus (Evans, 52).
Subs not Used: Gray, Feeney.

Well done David Unsworth and the lads. Get in the habit of winning trophies.

Don't recall either the club or ToffeeWeb publishing details of this game beforehand. Were the public not welcome at the game?

The Walsh situation is intriging. After tearing up a storm at Yeovil, I expected him to make the first team squad for pre-season but he's kept back with u21s and sent off early on in their game in the Milk Cup in Northern Ireland. Now he isn't making the starting eleven for u21s. Is this an attempt to temper his susceptibility to the red mist that descends on him frequently?

He's a terrific player who should play a part in Everton's future.

John, I was disappointed to find I had missed the match. I was keen to go having seen we had won our semi-final. Prescott Cables only won theirs last Saturday, it was a surprise this morning to discover the final had taken place.

Yes, Peter, very disappointing although perhaps not surprising given that the semi-final seemed to happen on the sly as well.

TW did say last season it would publish details of upcoming u21 games to try to increase attendance rates but they seem to have fallen at the first hurdle. Lets hope it was just an oversight or evidence of a lack of an action plan and not a sign that they were just saying the right things.

I wouldn't go as far as that John, I think the TW guys do a remarkable job. Anyway, I'm not going to let my absence from the match detract from my pleasure that we have won a cup!

It was publicised in the Echo wasn't it? And the official site?

Winning trophies?
It's a lovely habit to get in to!
Well done to the lads and Unsworth who in particular is showing signs of what a great manager he may turn out to be.
Now it's time for the senior squad to win something!
