Everton Under-18s made a fantastic start to the 2019-20 season, winning 8 of
their first 9 games in the U-18 Premier League, and scoring 10 goals in a U18
Premier League Cup game. But they flagged a little in mid-season, finishing 3rd in the U18 Premier League (North).
Ellis Simms scored a remarkable 45 goals in just 29 games across all U-18

The U18 Premier League replaced the Premier Academy League at the start of the 2012-13 season with the aim to enhance youth development and help transition players between the Academy and First Team.
The 2019-20 Under-18 Premier League is the sixth campaign of the top tier of the Under-18 Development League. A total of 24 teams are split regionally into north and south groups. Teams face their regional opponents both home and away before the top two face each other to determine the national champion. Chelsea were the defending champions from 2017-18.
