U18s edged out of Cup by Chelsea

Saturday, 17 February, 2018 3comments  |  Jump to most recent

Everton Under-18s were narrowly beaten by Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Premier League Cup at USM Finch Farm today.

The young Blues went into the game on the back of a hard-fought league victory over Liverpool — and had reached the last four of this competition after dispatching Fulham in the quarter-finals.

However, a single goal from Marc Guehi 10 minutes before the break saw Everton hopes ended by the runaway leaders of the Under-18 Premier League southern section.

Everton U18s: Hansen, Moore, Anderson, Ouzounidis [Y], Richards [Y] (46' Iversen), Astley, Mampala, Scully, Simms, Duke-McKenna (59' Adedoyin), Warren (46' Gordon).
Subs not used: Murphy, Mckeown.

Chelsea FC's website gave twitter updates on the match; Everton's webshite couldn't be bothered to send someone to watch the Blues play a cup semi-final at our own Finch Farm.

They really are a shower. Other club's U23 match highlights are always longer and better produced than those appearing on Everton's. And they've now taken to running a title over the first few seconds of the live action, thus masking the first part of the build-up to the first goal.

Everton deserves better.

This wasn't an U23 game. It was an U18 game. U18 coverage from all clubs is pretty average.

Yes it was an U18 semi-final but Chelsea still had a live twitter feed and we didn't – at our own headquarters. We boast about our Academy and we ought to be as good as other leading teams in featuring our younger players.
