Everton's Under-18s took on Tranmere Rovers in the FA Youth Cup at Goodison Park this evening and progressed to the next round thanks to a goal in each half.
Fraser Hornby gave David Unsworth's men the lead when he converted a penalty shortly before half time and Morgan Feeney doubled the lead three minutes after the break with a close-range finish.
Tranmere pushed to find a way back into the contest as the second period wore on and they hit the post after Shane Lavery had gone close to putting the tie almost beyond doubt.
Everton also hit the woodwork in the closing stages and held out for a 2-0 win.
Everton: Pierce, Moore, Harrington, Baningime, Lees, Feeney, Bramall (79' Denny), Kiersey, Hornby, Evans, Lavery.

Wednesday 18 January 2017
Everton's U18 lost to Preston North End in the 4th round going down 7-6 on penalties after the game finished 0-0 after extra time.
Jack Kiersey had the Young Blues's best chance of a tight first half but fired wide while Hornby, Bramall and Morris had chances to win it in the second half.
30 goalless minutes of extra time couldn't separate the two teams which set up a penalty shootout.
Alex Wood was the first to miss from 12 yards, his shot saved by Ben Pierce but Manasse Mampala spurned the chance to put Everton ahead when shot over the bar to keep the score on spot-kicks at 3-3.
The teams couldn't be separated as the shootout moved into sudden death but Michael Collins saw the decisive spot-kick saved.
Everton: Pierce, Morris, Harrington, Denny, Lees, Feeney, Bramall (105' Collins), Kiersey, Lavery (35' Baningime), Hornby, Moore (99' Mampala).
