Newcastle Utd U18s 1 - 1 Everton U18s

Everton U-18s were headed for another defeat at Newcastle's training ground in Little Benton today when Ellis Simms popped up to save a point and restore some pride with a last-minute equalizer.

The Young Blues had gone behind at the worst time — just before the break, and didn't look like scoring despite putting in the effort against a resilient Magpies side.

That was until goal-hound Simms found the net yet again, and the Young Blues came home with a precious point.

Everton U18s: Tyrer, Hosie (63' Carroll [Y]), Warren, Joe Anderson, McKeown, Hughes [Y], Adedoyin (63' Thompson), Quirk, Simms, Dobbin, Hunt (63' Zuk).
Subs not Used: Barrett, Jonathan Anderson.

No it's not. World of difference between the u18's and the premier league. I've not seen this lad but reports tell me he has had minimal impact when promoted to the u23's, which is if the club thought he was ready for he would be starting more regularly.

Next season may define this lads future, he needs more exposure to higher level footy, I'm all for development but can also see the argument for unleashing raw potential, of course sometimes it works (Rooney) sometimes it fails (a much longer list )

Maybe a loan at one of the championship clubs who miss out on promotion (Villa?) but are an established club
