Everton U18s took on Wolverhampton Wanderers at USM Finch Farm on Saturday morning and came from behind to win 3-2 in the last minute.

Kevin Sheedy's young Blues raced into a three-minute lead thanks to Tom Scully's well-taken right-footed effort, but the visitors found themselves ahead with goals either side of the break.

Korede Adedoyin bundled home from close range to level the game at 2-2 midway through the second half, before Daniel Bramall cut in off the left and his deflected shot looped over the goalkeeper to clinch victory with 60 seconds of play remaining.

This was their final game in the regional phase of the U-18 Premier League competition this season where they will finish 5th in the North Division.

Teams finishing 5th to 8th in both North and South then peel off into the Second Tier Group for the rest of the season, while the top four become the First Tier Group and compete for the title.

Everton U18s: Pierce, N Baxter, Harrington, Collins, Moore, Scully, Denny, Duke-McKenna (60' Gordon), Virtanen (45' Morris), Bramall, Adedoyin.
Subs not Used: Jones, Warren, Kerr.
