Everton U23s calked up their first win of the season, away to Chelsea. Goals came from Baningime and Niasse after a first-half own goal.

The hosts fielded Eden Hazard the their side at Aldershot's Recreation Ground tonight as he regains fitness.

However, it was the Blues of Everton who took the lead after 18 mins as Joseph Colley turned Liam Walsh's dangerous whipped cross into his own net!

Just before the hour mark Liam Walsh is the creator again as he teed up Baningime to drill the ball low to Bulka's right from the edge of box!

3 mins before the end, substitutes Gibson and Broadhead linked up well and Niasse slammed the ball into the roof of the net after his initial effort was parried by Bulka.

Broadhead produced one of the best moments of the game. The winger wriggled away from two markers down the Chelsea right, cut inside and let fly with an effort from 25 yards that smacked against the post.

Everton U23s: Gray, Jones, Foulds, Baningime, Feeney, Connolly, Charsley, Evans (75' Gibson), Walsh, Sambou (79' Broadhead), Niasse (90' Donkor).
Subs not Used: Hilton, Bowler.
