Everton Under-18s fell to a narrow 3-2 defeat against Manchester United at Finch Farm on Tuesday.
Thierry Small caused United problems from the outset, his cross finding Cannon inside the 18-yard area but the striker unable to hook his left-footed effort on target.
Onyango broke out of midfield and provided an inch-perfect through-ball for Cannon, whose driving effort whistled past the post.
Great play in the centre of the pitch by Sean McAllister won the ball back deep for Everton, and the midfielder then had the awareness to find teammate Lewis Dobbin. After twisting and turning on the edge of the box, the forward got a shot away but saw his effort skim wide of the target.
Dobbin fired over and Seb Quirk drilled a long-range effort into the goalkeeper's arms as Everton continued to exert pressure.
But second-half goals that finally came from Tyler Onyango and Tom Cannon proved not to be enough as the vistors notched up a victory in an entertaining contest at USM Finch Farm.Everton U18s: Leban [Y:65'], Hosie, Small, Welch, Thompson, Hughes, Dobbin, Onyango, Cannon, McAllister [Y:47'] (72' Higgins), Quirk.
Subs not Used: Butterfield, Kristensen, Lowey.

When are we ever going to get a TV Channel of our own?

They seemed more up for it, than we did, Dobbin had a few narrow misses too. Like I said before, when are we going to get a proper Everton TV, for all the youngsters matches and previews on Matchday etc.
They overspend on players and wages, but never seem to consider the basics like having our own TV Station. All other Premier League teams seem to be better organised, and pre-season is usually a farce with technical problems with Fred Carno's TV. Even the smaller teams in Scotland all have their own TV Station.

My conclusion was that you're actually right, Derek. It would be good to see the younger teams in action, put faces to names, and also have the pleasure to hopefully watch a few of them develop into proper footballers.

We are continually out-done by clubs like Leicester, Derby, Swansea showing our games. I watched the U23s Chelsea game recently on their App for free. Even the highlights are poor lasting just two minutes, which inevitably looks good for the forwards/ midfielders scoring and creating the goals and poor for our defenders conceding them as that's all you see.
I can't see things changing in the near future though.

All considered and without Covid-19, Everton, must get this sorted ASAP.
It's a piss-take on a recurring scale. As Evertonians, we want to see the teams and players progress and develope.
No assuming, but EFC, must get this right, if they are to get to fulfill their customer satisfaction obligations too.
