U23s Premier League Cup game off

Saturday, 16 March, 2019 8comments  |  Jump to last

Bad weather has caused the postponement of Everton U23s Premier League Cup Round of 16 game against Sunderland in Southport this afternoon.

Into the last 16 of the U23s Premier League Cup competition, David Unsworth's men were all set to take on Sunderland with home advantage at Haig Avenue, Stockport.

Everton topped their group after six games, home and away, against Doncaster Rovers, Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield Utd, remaining unbeaten through the early stages this season's competition.

The game was to kick off in Southport at 2:00 pm on Saturday 16 March 2019 but has been postponed after the Haig Avenue pitch was found to be waterlogged with heavy rain persisting across the region.

A new date for the game will be announced.

Cheers, Steve. Southport - no water at the beach; too much water at Southport FC.

Everton beat Sunderland 2-1 tonight, game just finished, don’t know the scorers but the first one was a penalty, I believe, now through to the last eight.

Sambou and a late free kick from Anthony Gordon got Everton’s goals.

And what a cracking winning goal it was.

The game could have gone either way though. Sunderland had two fierce long range shots in the first half that tested our keeper. And a second half goalmouth scramble that we were fortunate to get away with.

Love the central defensive pairing of Feeney and Morgan. And young Ryan Astley at right back is very solid. Nathan Broadhead had a couple of clear chances but couldn't quite get there. Dennis Adeniran very solid in midfield. Anthony Gordon seemed off the pace for much of the game - running promising chances out of play after being played in with some fine balls down the wing.
