Anthony Gordon grabbed a late equaliser in Everton Under-23s 2-2 draw at Tottenham Hotspur today. The game was played at Spurs' training ground on Hotspur Way in Bulls Cross, Enfield.
David Unsworth's young team trailed 2-0 before Bassala Sambou reduced the arrears three minutes before half-time.
Then, four minutes from the end of the Premier League 2 clash, 17-year-old substitute Gordon converted a low cross from fellow substitute Manasse Mampala to snatch a point and claim his first goal for the Blues' Under-23 team.
Everton have slipped off the top of the PL2 table after losing the mini-derby to Liverpool last month, and the loss of two more points means they are in danger of slipping further behind Derby County, the new leaders.
Everton U23s: Hewelt, Ouzounidis, Charsley, Feeney, Browning, Broadhead (61' Simms), Evans (74' Gordon), Adeniran, Bowler, Iversen, Sambou (61' Mampala).
Subs not Used: Hilton, Astley.

2-0 down after 36 minutes. Sambou pulled one back on the stroke of half-time and Anthony Gordon snatched an equaliser in the 86th minute.
By my reckoning that keeps us in second place, one point behind leaders Derby, having played a game more.

Derby also play(ed) today: Man City (H)... sources say kick-off was 11 am, but I can't find the score anywhere. I think it might be tonight.

I don't track the U-teams daily. Turns out, Man City won the Check-a-Trade Trophy.

Although I'm puzzled by your last assertion: Lincoln City are the current holders of the Checkatarde (formerly EFL) Trophy. I don't think Man City have ever won it. Where are you getting that from?

These are men approaching their mid-20s who should have 100 plus league appearances under their belts at some level but kick around a Premier League club junior teams probably because of the money. I don't know who advises them. Modern football is shit.
