U18s fire in seven goals at West Brom

Saturday, 26 August, 2017 7comments  |  Jump to most recent

Everton U18s have won 7-1 at West Brom with four goals (two penalties) for Anthony Gordon.

A four-goal display from midfielder Anthony Gordon helped Everton Under-18s come from behind to record a stunning 7-1 away victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Paul Tait's young Blues went behind early on, but responded as Fraser Hornby netted an equaliser on his first appearance after six months out with an injury.

An incredible second half followed, with the Toffees flying out of the blocks and taking the lead, courtesy of quick-fire goals from Alex Denny and Gordon.

Gordon's work was far from over, though, as he netted three more times - two of which came from the penalty spot - before the full-time whistle.

Manasse Mampala also opened his account for the season as Everton ran riot in the Midlands.

Everton U18s: Hilton, Moore, Ouzounidis, Duke-McKenna, Hornby (60' Simms), Denny, Collins, Kerr (70' Scully), Anderson (74' Mampala), Gordon, Richards.
Subs not Used: Astley, Johnson.

Four goals from young Anthony Gordon , two penalties , 16 year old midfielder , 1st year Scholar with bags of talent. Fraser Hornby also scored on his return after 6 months injury. Converted from a midfielder into a goal scoring number 9 .

Very early days yet Tanvir, but Gordon certainly looks to be one of the stand outs of the 16 year old first year Scholars. He actually played a few times last season for the u18s when he must have been a Schoolboy. Still slight of build as you'd expect for a 16 year old , and I'm sure we'll bring him on gradually.

Manasse Mampala, was he one of the signings in the summer or has he come through the ranks?

Glad to see Hornby back, was wondering what had happened to him. Probably our best prospect at this age group.

Dave, Mampala is a 2nd year Scholar, started his Scholarship July 2016. He certainly played a few games last season for the U18s.
