U18s rout Sunderland 5-1

Saturday 14 October 2017  5 Comments  [Jump to last]

Everton Under-18s were ruthless in their 5-1 victory at Sunderland on Saturday.

Anthony Gordon gave Everton a flying start to the fixture at the northeast side's Academy of Light, the prolific attacking midfielder netting twice inside nine minutes.

Striker Manasse Mampala then took over, firing in two goals shortly before half-time and completing his hat-trick just after the hour mark.

The hosts responded with five minutes remaining to deny the young Blues a clean sheet — but they had long since secured the three points which lifted them a place into 3rd in the Premier League Under-18 North division.

Everton U18s: Hilton, Moore, Anderson, Collins, Ouzounidis (58' Richards), Denny (58' Kerr), Duke-McKenna, Scully, Mampala (64' Adedoyin), Gordon, Iversen.
Subs not Used: Johnson, Corke.

More good news from the junior sides before the Brighton game.

Anthony Gordon seems to be progressing well. Long may it continue.

It was raised on an earlier piece but, as he's not mentioned here or the U-18s, is Bowler, the lad from QPR, injured or just an unused sub?

I think I will be enjoying myself watching a lot of these lads when the FA Youth Cup matches start, especially Anthony Gordon – I haven't seen him yet.

Did the U23s have a game today at Finch Farm? Is there any news of this game?

Dave, they lost 0-1 and the Echo reporter had a less than flattering view of the team for today's match and indeed for last season's title winners particularly in the final few paragraphs.
