Everton Under-18s were really in the mood at Finch Farm today, smashing 10 goals past Sunderland.
Everton scored inside 60 seconds and, after Sebastian Quirk's breakthrough goal, showed their opponents no mercy.
Tait's side was 5-0 up at half-time and — in front of Everton's former Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, watching at USM Finch Farm — had doubled their tally by the final whistle.
Tom Cannon promptly scored twice inside five minutes following the restart to add to his first-half double.
Lewis Warrington, Rhys Hughes from the spot and, in the final minute, Max Thompson completed the scoring. Quirk had earlier netted his second, while Tyler Onyango returned from England Under-17 duty with a ninth-minute strike.
Scorers: Quirk (1', 35'), Onyango (9'), Cannon (16', 22', 47', 50'), Warrington (78'), Hughes (pen:88'), M Thompson (90).
Everton U18s: McIntyre, Hosie (65' Higgins), Lowey, Welch, D Thompson [Y], Hughes (c), Quirk, Onyango, Cannon (76' M Thompson), Carroll, Dobbin (65' Warrington).
Subs not Used: Rose, Jon Anderson.

The academy sides do seem to be running up a lot of high-scoring games across all age groups this season.
Anything to read in the tea leaves of all that, Dave?

Oh, and to make the day better, for me anyway, Man City U18s beat Liverpool U18s 5-2.

The tea leaves are saying look out for Tom Cannon, I don't think he has signed a full contract with The Blues yet, but is very well regarded. They play Sunderland again in a couple of weeks in the cup, not sure if it's the FA Youth Cup.

I hope they're all getting a bollocking for that slack spell, they could have let Sunderland right back in it!!
Well done by the way Dave for following the youth teams and updating us all with scores, players development etc, you should be on the payroll!

Let's hope the same tempo rubs off tomorrow on the south coast.

Cannon has scored eight in his last three games, Man City, the leaders got beat by Wolves2-1 so Everton are three points behind them with a game in hand.
Quirk gave Tom Cannon a good assist for one of his goals.
