U18s lose to local rivals in mini-derby

Friday 22 September 2017  11 Comments  [Jump to last]

Everton U18s travelled the short distance to Liverpool's Kirkby Academy this evening and gave up a 1-0 lead, eventually losing 3-1 to Liverpool's youngsters.

The Blues were full of confidence after a run of three consecutive victories in all competitions.

U18s coach Paul Tait told evertonfc.com. “We've trained well this week and there is confidence because we're on a decent little run. But it's also a case of the old saying of, ‘don't get too high, don't get too low in football'.

“We won't need to motivate them for a derby, that's for sure. A lot of them have played in derbies before but this will be a first taste at Under-18 level for a lot of them, which is a little bit different to the schoolboy games.

“We're all thoroughly looking forward to it.”

However, after Anthony Gordon had scored to put Everton ahead, the goalscorer was substituted along with Hornby, the Blues sat back a bit and paid the price as Jones grabbed a brace and Camacho scored Liverpool's third.

Everton U18s: Hansen, Richards, Moore, Collins, Ouzounidis, Denny [Y], Duke-McKenna, Kerr (74' Simms), Hornby (64' Mampala), Gordon (64' Iversen), Anderson [Y].
Subs not Used: Johnson, Scully.

EFC U18s drawing 0-0 against Liverpool after 25 mins. Anthony Gordon has gone closest with an audacious lob from range.

Can't find the teamsheet anywhere...

Liverpool under 18 coach Steven Gerard on today's game. "Everton are a tough side and I am sure they will set up and try and stop us playing, which is what they do at first team level."
