Ellis Simms and Kieran Phillips seem to be the ones tearing things up for the Under-18s — 17 goals between them so far!!!

And it is Joe Williams who has gone on loan to Bolton this season, not Liam Walsh.

By the way, Liam Walsh's January move to the Championship has not launched the young man's career at all. He made only eight appearances for Bristol City in the second half of last season, with no goals or assists.
This season he has been named among their subs in all 12 league games, but without even one minute of play. His sole first-team appearance was a League Cup start against Plymouth back in August. Other than that, his only action has been for their U-23s.

Turns out he has not even been on the subs bench yet for the Under-18s. Fingers crossed he'll be a good'un!

From the 2017 title winners it looks as though Jonjoe Kenny and Tom Davies are going to be the ones, with an outside chance for Joe Williams, Keiran Dowell and Beni Baningime.
So we should be looking at this very strong youth team as an entirely different set of prospects and pat the club on the back for producing 2 good youth teams so close to one another.
My heart would like Feeney and Hornby to kick on, as they look like 'proper Everton players', and they are in key positions for the spine of the team, but in all honesty if we can produce 4-5 first teamers from 3 youth seasons combined, that is a very good sign that we are motoring in the right direction.

Always good to read about our other teams, especially when they are doing so well!

They have short video highlights of those games but I'm not good enough to identify all the players by sight.

He also played in the last match, the 5th-place decider, which we lost 1-0 to Sparta Prague. I haven't watched that one yet.
