Everton U18s 6 - 0 Sunderland U18s
An exhibition of deadly finishing ability from Ellis Simms saw the prolific striker hit four goals in Everton Under-18s' 6-0 victory over Sunderland at USM Finch Farm on Saturday.
Simms has now scored a remarkable 31 goals in 20 U18 Premier League (North) matches this season. Bobby Carroll and Korede Adedoyin also got on the scoresheet as the young Blues produced a devastating display of attacking football against the Black Cats.
The comprehensive win lifts Everton up to 3rd in the table with just one match left to play. The Toffees will round off their league campaign at Manchester United on 27 April.
Everton U18s: Tyrer, Quirk, Collins, Joe Anderson, McKeown (46' Richards), Hughes, Adedoyin, Carroll (66 Zuk), Simms, Hunt (73' Warnock), Cannon.
Subs not Used: Barrett, Warren.
(A first appearance at this level for Tom Cannon?)

Not saying the lad is ready, but loans are not always the indicator. If he goes on loan but the coaching set up is crap, or the team is crap, or the manager, or it simply isn't a good fit that could push his development backwards.
Personally, his numbers are exceptional, clearly he is too good for the level.
I don't see any harm in giving him.a run out as we end this mire or a season, not like having him.on the bench instead of Tosun is a risk.

We have to guard against throwing him into a mans arena before he is ready

I say give him some sub minutes in the final month, just for a taste of first-team excitement. He's earned the treat.
