Everton Under-23s, 2019-20

Everton's second string defense of their second Premier League 2 crown in three seasons was cut short by the Coronavirus pandemic.

[History of Everton Reserves]

Everton's Under-23s largely represent the end product of the renowned Everton Academy at Finch Farm which has produced a number of players now on the threshold of breaking into the Blues' first team. As of 2016, they play in the FA Premier League 2 as one of 12 teams in Division 1.

As well as the U23s competing in the Premier League Cup and the Premier League International Cup, Everton are also one of the Premier League Development sides that enter U21 teams into the Leasing.com (ne EFL) Trophy alongside the senior sides from Football League One and League Two.

Under-23 Match Details, 2019-20

FA Premier League 2, Division 1

Starting in 2017-18, the U21 Premier League (which itself replaced the old Reserves league that stretched back to an age that pre-dated the formation of the Football League in 1888) was renamed Premier League 2 formed of 24 Category 1 Development teams from top-tier Premier League and Championship clubs. It operates on the same two-division format of 12 teams each but the age limit was raised to 23.

Each team can field a goalkeeper over the age limit and up to three ‘over-age’ outfield players in every match.

2019-20 Format

Chelsea Blackburn Rovers
Derby County Brighton & Hove Albion
Everton Fulham
Leicester City Middlesbrough
Manchester City Newcastle United

Everton 0 - 0 Leicester City

Premier League 2; Game #1
Monday 12 August 2019
Haig Avenue, Southport

Everton Under-23s opened their defence of the Premier League 2 title with a drawn game against Leicester City in Southport tonight.

With a number of players going out on loan, and a few stepping up from the Under-18s, plus some frankly unwanted 'deadwood' unable to secure loan deals yet, it may be quite a mixed bag for David Unsworth to corral into a potent force again.

Ellis Simms and Fraser Hornby appear to be the main men up front, although Simms is not in the squad tonight, with Manasse Mampala perhaps taking up the slack after Bassala Sambou declined a new contract.

No goals in the first half, and a red card on 55 mins for the Leicester centre-half after pulling back Fraser Hornby in the centre-circle but heading off for goal.

Lots of chances to score in the second half but the Blues could not convert and it remained 0-0.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Connolly (37' Astley), Foulds, Baningime, Feeney (c), Gibson, Adeniran, Markelo (67' John), Evans, Hornby, Gordon.
Subs: Barrett, Denny, Mampala.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 0 - 0 Everton

Premier League 2; Game #2
Sunday 18 August 2019
New Bucks Head, Wolverhampton

Everton U23s failed to score for their second PL2 fixture as Nico Hansen kept Wolves at bay.

Cuco Martina, Beni Baningime, and Callum Connolly featured but their senior experience could not turn the game for the Blues.

Everton U23s: Hansen, Martina, Foulds, Baningime, Feeney (c), Connolly, Evans, Denny (85' Philips), Hornby, Adeniran, Charsley (68' Markelo).
Subs not Used: Barrett, Mampala.

Arsenal 2 - 2 Everton

Premier League 2; Game #3
Friday 23 August 2019
The Emirates Stadium, London

Anthony Gordon scored late on to rescue a point for Everton at the Emirates. An excellent long ball from Matty Foulds was misjudged by the Arsenal backline — Gordon latched onto it, side-stepped past the Arsenal keeper and slotted into the empty net with just 5 minutes left.

That levelled the game after it had got off to a frenetic start, with each team on target within the opening seven minutes. The home side drew first blood. A lofted effort looped over Toffees keeper Nico Hansen's head and into the back of the net.

Everton's response was immediate. Evans slipped a pinpoint pass through to Gordon, whose ice-cool finish levelled the scores.

It was Arsenal who were to strike next. After winning the ball in the middle of the park, the Gunners broke at speed and worked the ball to midfielder Robbie Burton, who curled a pinpoint shot into the top corner on 22 minutes.

Arsenal thought they had a third when Holding's header looked destined for the back of the net, but Foulds was on the line to clear.

Everton started the second half encouragingly, with Gordon forcing an excellent save with a swerving effort from 20 yards. Gordon was to have the last word, though, showing a predator's instinct to get on the end of Foulds' marvellous pass and secure a hard-earned point for his team.

Everton U23s: Hansen, John (46' Denny), Foulds, Astley (67' Simms), Fenney (c), Joe Anderson, Markelo, Connolly (46' Mampala), Gordon, Charsley, Evans.
Subs not Used: Barrett, Iversen

Everton 8 - 2 Southampton

Premier League 2; Game #4
Friday 30 August 2019
Haig Avenue, Southport

Everton Under-23s produced a devastating exhibition of attacking football to beat Southampton 8-2 in a remarkable Premier League 2 clash on Friday night.

The Toffees fell two goals behind in Southport but went on to overwhelm the Saints with a performance rich in verve, invention and ruthlessness. Southampton had taken the lead midway through the first half, from a corner. The away side doubled their advantage after Harry Tyrer had made a fine stop.

With the Premier League 2 Champions in a spot of bother after Saints established a two-goal lead on 33 minutes, in-form forward Gordon stepped up to the mantle.

His first goal – which came almost instantaneously after Southampton's second – was a peach. The England Under-18 international showcased his quick feet to work some space 20 yards out, before expertly curling a precision finish into the bottom corner.

With his already sky-high confidence given another boost, Gordon set off on an explosive dart at the Saints backline just three minutes later. The Southampton defenders had no answer, and he was bundled over in the box for a clear penalty. Gordon took the kick himself, sending the keeper the wrong way to level the scores.

Gordon's brace was followed by a sustained spell of pressure. The young forward had the chance to complete his hat-trick early in the second half but saw a penalty cannon off the post. Gordon had won the spot-kick himself after being scythed down.

Everton did not have to wait long to hit the front, Foulds heading in from Evans's devilish corner delivery.

And Charsley made it 4-2 after capitalising on some hesitation in the Southampton defence to steal possession and slot home. Evans's corners were causing havoc and Denny bundled home from another inviting centre to make it 5-2.

Everton were relentless at this point and Evans got on the scoresheet himself when he raced clear before lashing inside the post, and Morgan Feeney's first-time finish made it 7-2.

Substitute Mampala rounded off the scoring, guiding the ball home after another splendid crossfield pass from Evans.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Charsley (76' Mampala), Baningime, Feeney (c), Foulds, Evans, Gordon, Denny, Markelo, John, Adeniran (80' Iversen).
Subs not Used: Barrett, Astley, Simms.

Everton 2 - 1 Blackburn Rovers

Premier League 2; Game #5
Monday 16 September 2019
Goodison Park, Merseyside

Everton's Under-23s returned to action this evening and came out with a 2-1 win over Blackburn thanks to an Ellis Simms winner.

Lewis Gibson's first-half goal was cancelled out by Rankin-Costello but when Anthony Gordon put Simms into the clear, the striker converted the deciding goal with 15 minutes to go.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Denny (56' Mampala), Foulds, Baningime [Y], Feeney (75' Astley), Gibson (68' Simms), Adeniran, Charsley, Gordon, Markelo [Y], Evans.
Subs not Used:
Barrett, Iversen.

Brighton & Hove Albion 1 - 2 Everton

Premier League 2; Game #6
Friday 20 September 2019
Amex Stadium, Brighton

Everton's Under-23s beat Brighton & Hove Albion's development side 2-1 as Antony Evans smashed home a winner at the death.

O'Hora looked to have earned a draw for the hosts when he equalised in the last minute to cancel out Anthony Gordon's early opener but David Unsworth's men went down the other end and won it with an Evans screamer.

The result preserves Everton U23s' unbeaten start to the season and moves them top of the Premier League 2 table on goal difference from Arsenal.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Astley, Joe Anderson, Baningime, Feeney, Foulds, Evans [Y], Charsley, Simms (46' Denny), Markelo [Y], Gordon.
Subs not Used: Hansen, Mampala, Iversen, Phillips.

Everton 2- 2 Manchester City

Premier League 2; Game #7
Friday 27 September 2019
Haig Avenue, Southport

Everton's Under-23s came from two goals behind to 2-2 draw with Manchester City to extend their unbeaten start to the new season.

City's development side took the lead half way through the first half when Ryan Astley conceded a penalty that Doyle successfully despatched.

David Unsworth's side then fell further behind despite growing into the contest, Touazi scoring for the visitors.

The young Blues responded in short order, however, when Antony Evans curled a beautiful shot into the top corner from a free-kick.

The equaliser came from excellent work from Anthony Gordon who left his man for dead near the touchline, exchanged passes with Ellis Simms, skipped past two more defenders and crashed an effort off the crossbar. Thankfully, Simms had followed the shot in and headed the rebound past the goalkeeper.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Astley, Foulds, Feeney, Gibson, Markelo, Baningime (85' Denny), Adeniran, Evans, Charsley (52' Simms), Gordon.
Subs not Used: Hansen, Mampala, Joe Anderson.

Derby County 4 - 1 Everton

Premier League 2; Game #8
Friday 18 October 2019
Pride Park, Derby

Everton Under-23s, previously undefeated in Premier League 2, were beaten 4-1 at Derby County on Friday night.

Everton were the more progressive side during the first half at Pride Park and Ellis Simms's superb solo effort gave the Toffees a deserved lead. But Unsworth's side were pegged back before the break. Derby then struck three times without reply in the second half to run out comfortable winners.

Directly after Derby's equaliser, Anthony Gordon was forced off with a knee injury. Gordon had already produced a number of flourishes of class, with his feinting, swerving dribbles regularly forcing Derby defenders to retreat.

He was replaced on 40 minutes by another talented youngster, 17-year-old Mackenzie Hunt making his first appearance of the season at this level.

Everton had been steadily building pressure before Simms' superb opener 23 minutes in. The danger appeared minimal when Simms collected the ball 35 yards from goal. But the striker showcased his impressive speed, power and composure to drive into the penalty area - leaving two Derby defenders in his trail - and pulled off a precision finish.

Simms almost had his second soon after, a fingertip stop keeping out his goalbound header from Kyle John's cross. Everton continued to play on the front foot but, after a rare foray forward, Derby drew level 36 minutes in.

Derby were a different side after their equaliser, attacking with speed and purpose. They went ahead just after the hour mark — their striker tapping in at the back post after a slick team move. They made it 3-1 from the penalty spot on 73 minutes after Everton goalkeeper Harry Tyrer was penalised for upending a Derby Player.

Victory for the home team was wrapped up 9 minutes from time, a powerful strike finding the bottom corner from 25 yards. Everton remain 3rd in Premier League 2, 5 points behind leaders Chelsea.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, John (73' Denny), Foulds, Baningime [Y], Feeney, Gibson, Charsley (68' Mampala), Adeniran, Simms, Markelo, Gordon (42' Hunt [Y]).
Subs not Used: Hansen, Astley.

Liverpool 2 - 1 Everton

Premier League 2; Game #9
Saturday 1 November 2019
Liverpool Academy

Everton U23s lost to Liverpool at their academy this afternoon.

The game kicked off at 2pm. Liverpool went ahead after 14 minutes, via a deflected shot.

Everton pulled back level after Dennis Adeniran burst through on the right and squeezed his shot past the keeper after 37 minutes to make it 1-1 at half-time.

Liverpool scored late on to take the victory.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Astley, Feeney, Gibson, Foulds, Adeniran, Markelo [Y:70'], Baningime, Onyango (87'Dobbin), Gordon, Simms (46' Charsley).

Everton 1 - 3 Tottenham Hotspur

Premier League 2; Game #10
Friday 22 November 2019
Haig Avenue, Southport

Everton's second string were in action against Spurs at the Pure Stadium this evening but went down to a 3-1 defeat.

David Unsworth's men fell behind early to a goal by Markanday and were two down by half-time when Shashoua doubled the Londoners' advantage.

Shashoua made it 3-0 nine minutes into the second half and, although Dennis Adeniran pulled one back late on, there was no way back for the Blues.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Denny, Astley, Foulds, John (24' Ouzounidis), Onyango (46' Mampala), Markelo, Adeniran [Y:66'], Evans, Charsley [Y:57'], Simms.
Subs not Used: Hansen, Joe Anderson

Leicester City 2 - 1 Everton

Premier League 2; Game #11
Monday 9 December 2019
Holmes Park, Leicester

Everton Under-23s fell to a 2-1 defeat against Leicester City at Holmes Park on Monday night.

In the first half, Hansen dived to his left to stop a penalty from after the Leicester striker had been fouled by Con Ouzounidis.

On 55 minutes, Everton failed to deal with a Leicester corner and Hansen found himself stranded when the ball prodded into the net. 3minutes later, the home advantage was doubled when a fine Foxes move ended with a shot sailing in past Hansen.

Anthony Gordon slotted home an 86th-minute penalty but by then it was too late for the visitors to mount a comeback against a talented Foxes side.

Everton U23s: Hansen, John, Foulds, Astley, Ouzounidis, Joe Anderson, Evans (c), Iversen, Simms (59' Onyango), Adeniran, Gordon.
Subs not Used: Tyrer, Mampala, Hughes, Quirk.

Everton 3 - 2 Wolverhampton Wanderers

Premier League 2; Game #12
Monday 16 November 2019
Haig Avenue, Southport

Unsworth's young squad has struggled this season, winning only 3 out of 11 games so far this season, and have slipped to 6th place in their defence of the hard-won PL2 title from last season.

But things got off to a rocky start with the Blues giving up a goal to an incisive move down the right and accurate cross drive home from close range. But Everton rallied by the 11th minute, Simms grabbing his first after intercepting a loose ball and firing clinically into the bottom corner.

And the young striker made it 2-1 before the break after Matty Foulds sent in an excellent dipping corner delivery, which was met by Joe Anderson at the back post. The defender played a first-time volleyed pass into the danger zone, where predator supreme Simms was alive to hammer a shot into the roof of the net.

Wolves, however, tied the game 2 minutes later and looked to secure a point but, with 10 minutes left, Kyle John strode forward and fizzed a low cross in towards Simms. Otasowie attempted to clear the danger but could only divert the ball into his own net. 3-2 to the Blues!

Everton U23s: Hansen, John, Astley, Ouzounidis, Joe Anderson, Foulds, Markelo (c), Onyango (72' Hunt), Iversen (80' Denny), Mampala (73' Charsley), Simms.
Subs not Used: Tyrer.

Southampton 1 - 1 Everton

Premier League 2; Game #13
Monday 6 January 2020
Staplewood, Southampton

The young Blues left the south coast with a point in this Premier League 2 game thanks to Morgan Feeney’s 67th-minute goal, moments after the home side had taken the lead. The boyhood Evertonian followed up Ellis Simms’s cross to score, having gone close to scoring in the first half and also catching the eye with rock-solid defending.

The Toffees were pushing for a winner in the closing stages, with Nathangelo Markelo's dipping shot going narrowly over the bar with 4 minutes remaining. But, despite Everton's efforts, the two sides couldn't be separated at the final whistle and the spoils were shared.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Astley (46' Denny), Foulds, Markelo [Y], Feeney, Ouzounidis, John, Adeniran, Simms, Evans, Mampala (85' Iversen).
Subs not Used: Hansen, Onyango, Joe Anderson.

Everton 3 - 3 Arsenal

Premier League 2; Game #14
Monday 13 January 2020
Haig Avenue, Southport

Everton Under-23s played out an entertaining 3-3 draw with Arsenal at Southport tonight, with Joao Virginia back in goal after returning early from his loan spelll at Reading.

Ellis Simms struck twice and Lewis Gibson also found the net on his return to action following injury but David Unsworth's side couldn't hold out after regaining the lead at 3-2.

Joseph Olowu has put Arsenal's U23s ahead but Antony Evans set Simms up to sweep home an equaliser.

Simms then scored an excellent solo effort to put the Blues ahead barely 60 seconds later.

James Olayinka scored later in the half to ensure that the two sides went in level at the interval.

There were 16 minutes remaining when Gibson restored Everton's lead, heading home Evans's free-kick.

But Matthew breached Everton's goal four minutes after that with a close-range effort.

The visitors finished the game with 10 men after Tolaji Bola was sent off for a reckless challenge on Beni Baningime who was also making his return from his latest injury lay-off.

Everton U23s: Virginia, John [Y], Foulds, Feeney [Y], Ouzounidis [Y] (83' Mampala), Gibson, Iversen [Y] (52' Onyango), Baningime, Simms, Markelo (88' Quirk), Evans.
Subs not Used: Tyrer, Astley.

Everton 2 - 2 Chelsea

Premier League 2; Game #15
Friday 24 January 2020
Haig Avenue, Southport

Everton Under-23s hosted Premier League 2 leaders Chelsea in Southport this evening and played out a 2-2 draw, extending their recent unbeaten run to four matches.

New signing Jarrad Branthwaite was on the bench after making his debut for the U23s against Fulham last week.

Goals from Sebastian Quirk and Antony Evans (a penalty) were cancelled out by a brace from Faustino Anjorin for the visitors.

Everton U23s: Virginia, John, Foulds, Markelo, Feeney, Gibson, Evans, Baningime, Simms (79' Mampala), Quirk, Adeniran.

Manchester City 4 - 1 Everton

Premier League 2; Game #16
Friday 31 January 2020
City Academy, Manchester

Everton U23s are at the Academy Stadium in Manchester tonight, taking on their City counterparts without regulars Gordon, Evans, Feeney and Gibson in this Premier League 2 match-up.

The home side took the lead in the first half when Branthwaite's headed clearance was returned with interest, into the Everton goal.

Branthwaite would redeem himself before the end of the game, powering home a fine header to get Everton on the scoresheet. But it was well and truly a lost cause at that point after City had run riot earlier in the second half, banging in three goals in quick succession to end the match as a contest.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, John [Y:59'], Foulds, Astley [Y:90+2'], Ouzounidis [Y:67'], Branthwaite, Denny (54' Mampala), Markelo, Quirk (54' Simms), Baningime, Adeniran.

Everton 2 - 1 Derby County

Premier League 2; Game #17
Monday 17 February 2020
Goodison Park, Merseyside

Everton U23s graced the hallowed turf of Goodison Park on Monday night with a well-contested win over Derby County in Premier League 2.

Everton were mostly taking the game to the visitors but could not get a goal in the first half, despite Simms hitting the post with a header. But it was Manasse Mampala who did finally break the deadlock on 67 mins, firing home with confidence.

However, with 10 mins to go, Creswell, on as a substitute for the visitors, danced behind the Everton defence to slot past Virginia.

Everton came very close to getting the winner in the later stages, Simms through on goal but firing wide before Derby were reduced to 10 men in the final minute.

But, with 6 mins of added time, there was everything to play for and Ellis Simms produced the goods once again with the winning goal for David Unsworth's side.

Everton U23s: Virginia, Astley [Y:29'], Joe Anderson, Markelo, Ouzounidis [Y:96'], Foulds, Mampala (78' Onyango), Baningime, Simms, Iversen (68' Quirk), Adeniran [Y:45+3'].

Chelsea 1 - 0 Everton

Premier League 2; Game #18
Monday 2 March 2020
EBB Stadium, Aldershot

A young Everton team took on the Premier League 2 leaders and they gave a good account. However, they rarely troubled Chelsea's keeper, playing a well-organised but defensive 4-5-1 until a late penalty.

We lost 1-0 to the late penalty which, in true style, was dubious; Loftus-Cheek going down in the box when the wind changed direction with Baningime in close proximity. Everton had been marginally the better team in the first half, Chelsea in the 2nd and overall the game was a typical Academy fixture.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Astley (87' Onyango), Foulds [Y], Markelo [Y], Ouzounidis, Branthwaite, John, Baningime, Simms, Iversen (54' Mampala), Adeniran.

Everton 1 - 1 PSV Eindhoven

Premier League International Cup; Group D, Game #1
Wednesday 30 October 2019
Haig Avenue, Southport

Everton U23s took on PSV U23s in the Premier League International Cup on Wednesday night. The match kicked off at 7pm at Haig Avenue in Southport and finished in a 1-1 draw.

Anthony Gordon shone for the Blues and opened the scoring in the first half, before PSV equalised in injury time just before the final whistle. Goalkeeper Lars Unnerstall joined the PSY attack for a late corner. He flicked the ball on and French defender Maxime Soulas kept his cool and tapped home past Harry Tryer in the Everton goal, from a yard out, after a rare old scrum in the 6-yard box to deny Everton the win.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Astley, Feeney, Gibson, Foulds (83' John). Baningime, Markelo, Adeniran, Onyango, Gordon, Simms (83' Dobbin).

Everton 2 - 3 FC Porto

Premier League International Cup; Group D, Game #2
Friday 20 December 2019
Finch Farm, Halewood

Everton Under-23s lost 3-2 versus Porto in their PL International Cup clash at USM Finch Farm on Friday evening. David Unsworth's side were undone by their Portuguese opponents, winners of the competition in 2017 and 2018, despite a fine brace by Anthony Evans.

Porto's Fabio Vieira opened the scoring with a free-kick in the 10th minute, before Evans brought the Blues level with a wonderful goal 9 minutes later.
However, the visitors retook the lead just after the half-hour mark through Rodrigo Mequita's powerful drive, before Afonso Sousa doubled their advantage midway through the second half.

Evans scored a thumping free-kick in the 90th minute, but it came too late to make a difference.

Everton U23s: Hansen, Astley, Foulds, John, Ouzounidis, Evans, Charsley, Markelo (64' Mamppala [Y:89']), Iversen (74' Denny [Y:79']), Hunt (46' Onyango), Simms.

Premier League International Cup; Group D, Game #3
Monday 27 January 2020
Finch Farm, Halewood

Everton Under-23s exited the Premier League International Cup following a 4-0 defeat to Swansea City at USM Finch Farm.

Liam Cullen scored all four goals for the visitors who had established a handsome 3-0 lead by half-time over David Unsworth's young line-up which was missing some of the more experienced heads, like Antony Evans and Lewis Gibson.

The result condemned Everton to last place in Group D and no further progress in this season's competition.

Everton U23s: Virginia, John, Foulds, Markelo, Feeney, Branthwaite, Dobbin (67' Denny [Y:72']), Baningime (67' Ouzounidis), Simms, Quirk, Mampala (67' Hughes).

Premier League Cup, 2019-20

As well as their involvement in the Premier League 2 and the Premier League International Cup, the U23 side are competing in the Premier League Cup which will be changing its format for 2019-20. The competition will be in a ‘Champions League’ style with a full home and away group stage followed by a Round of 16 knockout for the teams that progress through the groups.   Everton U23s were drawn against Fulham, Plymouth Argyle and Watford in Group B of the Premier League Cup for 2019-20.

Fulham 2 - 1 Everton

Premier League Cup; Group B, Game #1
Sunday 6 October 2019
Motspur Park, London

To round out a dreadful weekend for the club at all upper levels, Everton Under-23s began their defence of the Premier League Cup with a narrow 2-1 defeat at Fulham on Sunday.

Kyle John levelled for the young Blues in the second half but the Londoners' late winner inflicted a first defeat of the campaign on David Unsworth's team.

At the Cottagers' Motspur Park training base, Everton had the game's opening chance as early as the second minute. Anthony Gordon, deployed on the right, won a corner and Ryan Astley powered a header over the bar. Fulham hit back — Nico Hansen's palms stung by a rasping drive from Ben Davis — as both sides used the early exchanges to prod and probe for openings.

As the half wore on, and with Fulham's rearguard proving its worth, Everton tried their luck from long range, but the home keeper saved comfortably from Beni Baningime and then Gordon. However, it was the hosts who broke the deadlock on 36 minutes as Luca de la Torre fired home from close range.

At the break, Unsworth introduced Kyle John and Manasse Mampala — in place of Dennis Adeniran and Ellis Simms respectively — and the change inspired a much-improved showing from the young Blues.

Indeed, the latter had barely entered the field of play before he fed Matty Foulds down the left and when he crossed for Gordon, hands were on heads as the 18-year-old steered over the bar.

However, Gordon was unperturbed. On the hour, he won a free-kick 25 yards from goal. Taking it himself, the youngster came within a whisker of drawing Everton level, smacking the crossbar with the keeper well beaten. Another dipping effort from a set-piece had him scrambling to tip the ball over, but the Toffees finally drew level on 66 minutes. Mampala squared the ball from the left and John tucked home from a few yards out.

But Fulham snatched victory against the run of play. On 78 minutes, Jaydon Harris was left unmarked and he finished emphatically past Hansen. Defeat then for Everton, but there is plenty of time to rebuild with five more group stage fixtures to come.

Everton U23s: Hansen, Astley (84' Denny), Foulds, Adeniran (46' Mampala), Feeney, Gibson, Gordon, Baningime [Y], Simms (46' John), Markelo, Charsley.

Premier League Cup; Group B, Game #2
Sunday 10 November 2019
Haig Avenue, Southport

The Everton U23s played out a 1-1 draw with Plymouth Argyle in the Premier League Cup at Southport this afternoon.

After 15 mins, Adeniran powered his way to the by-line and cut the ball back to Niasse whose shot landed at the feet of Charsley and he tapped it past the keeper.

But Argyle came back into it with a penalty at half-time after a foul by Foulds.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Astley, Foulds, Baningime, Feeney (c), Gibson, Adeniran, Onyango (45' Simms), Niasse, Markelo, Charsley (74' John).

Everton 3 - 0 Watford

Premier League Cup; Group B, Game #3
Monday 2 December 2019
Haig Avenue, Southport

Antony Evans scored twice in Everton's 3-0 Premier League Cup victory over Watford at Southport on Monday night. Evans found the net in the second half with a fine header and a fantastic free-kick after Matthew Foulds had fired home the opener.

Neither side showed sufficient cutting edge in the final third to break through in a scrappy first half. Harry Charsley sent an early header over the bar from an Alex Denny cross and, just before the break, Ellis Simms was teed up nicely by Evans but the striker's angled drive was well saved

Everton goalkeeper Nico Hansen was largely untested at the other end until he had to smother a shot in first-half stoppage time.

Just 2 minutes after the restart, Everton took the lead. Evans made space on the right and fed the ball to Simms, whose first-time shot flashed across the face of the goal where Foulds slammed it into the net. The defender turned provider 6 minutes later when his cross from the left was expertly headed home by Evans.

The lively Foulds should have scored again on the hour mark but, after fine approach play from Evans and Simms, he pulled his effort wide of the target from 10 yards.

The third goal was the pick of the bunch — a real beauty. Evans was fouled 25-yards out and picked himself up to curl a wonderful direct free-kick over the wall and into the top corner of the net.

Watford had their moments but found Hansen in fine form. The young stopper made a string of fine saves and looked secure all evening.

Everton U23s: Hansen, Denny, Foulds, Joe Anderson, Astley, Ouzounidis, Iversen (82' Hunt), Evans, Simms, Markelo (65' Mampala), Charsley.

Everton 4 - 2 Fulham

Premier League Cup; Group B, Game #4
Monday 17 January 2020
Haig Avenue, Southport

Everton Under-23s held off a late challenge from Fulham in a top-of-the-group Premier League Cup clash at Southport to grab a victory that takes them top of Group B.

The cup holders leapfrogged the Cottagers in the table thanks to a 4-2 victory secured with the help of two goals from Dennis Adeniran. A Zico Asare own goal had set the Blues on their way when he turned Kyle John's cross past his own goalkeeper but the visitors equalised in short order.

However, Adeniran restored Everton's advantage when he converted Antony Evans's square pass before Evans himself hit the post with a free-kick shortly before half-time. Adeniran made it 3-1 with a fine finish in the second half.

With Lewis Gibson and Anthony Gordon not named in the squad, David Unsworth had new signing Jarrad Branthwaite in defence alongside Morgan Feeney but, despite having a good overall game, it was the former who marred his debut by conceding the penalty from which Fulham pulled one back again through Taylor-Crossdale.

Everton killed the tie late on, however, when Manassé Mampala struck to complete the scoring at 4-2.

Everton U23s: Virginia, John, Foulds, Feeney, Ouzounidis (46' Iversen (62' Denny)), Branthwaite, Adeniran, Baningime, Simms, Markelo [Y] (46' Mampala), Evans.
Subs not Used: Tyrer, Joe Anderson.

Plymouth Argyle 0 - 4 Everton

Premier League Cup; Group B, Game #5
Monday 10 February 2020
Home Park, Plymouth

Everton spurned an excellent opportunity to take the lead in the 20th minute. A super pass by Beni Baningime released Denis Adeniran on the right and when he pulled the ball back across goal for Simms, the striker was tripped. The referee pointed instantly to the spot but Adeniran’s kick was well saved.

Fortunately, it took Adeniran just three minutes to make amends when he attacked the right-hand side of the Argyle penalty area before drilling a fine finish past the keeper.

The second goal came on 37 minutes. Nathangelo Markelo powered forward from midfield, leaving three Argyle defenders in his wake. When he was finally stopped, the loose ball was squared across the box by Kyle John for Simms to poke into the net.

The third goal came with the very last touch of the first period. Adeniran swung a corner into the Plymouth box and Astley glanced his header into the corner of the net.

Simms scored his second, and Everton’s fourth, in the 63rd minute. Matthew Foulds floated a lovely cross towards the far post and Simms had the simplest of tasks to nod the ball into the net.

John was unfortunate not to be on the scoresheet and Simms was fractions away from netting his third. The striker is on 10 goals for the season and it could have been 11 in the last minute when his effort hit the crossbar.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Astley, Foulds, Markelo (70' Onyango), Ouzounidis, Branthwaite, John, Baningime (69' Denny), Simms, Iversen, Adeniran (67' Quirk).
Subs not Used: Hansen, Joe Anderson.

Watford 0 - 1 Everton

Premier League Cup; Group B, Game #6
Friday 21 February 2020
Clarence Park, St Albans

Everton U23s came away from Watford with all the spoils thanks to a last-minute winner from Ellis Simms in their final group game of this season's Premier League Cup.

The Blues were already assured a place in the last-16 of a competition they won last season.

In the dying moments of a close game, Liam Higgins, appearing for the first time at this level, who had replaced Seb Quirk on 72 mins, found Simms with a very smart pass and, as usual, he provided an unerring finish for his 12th goal of the season.

Prior to that moment of quality, the game appeared to be heading for a goalless draw. Tyler Onyango was denied early on – the keeper diving bravely to stop the young midfielder’s effort after an excellent free-kick delivery from Rhys Hughes.

Hughes wasn’t too far away himself on 38 minutes when he created some space on the edge of the box and curled his shot just wide. The same player could have scored a couple of minutes after the break but he didn’t strike his close-range effort cleanly enough and it was comfortably saved.

On 74 minutes, Manasse Mampala skipped past a couple of challenges only to see his final effort smothered by the keeper.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, John, Joe Anderson, Onyango, Astley, Ouzounidis, Mampala, Denny, Simms, Quirk [Y:57'] (72' Higgins), Hughes (63' Branthwaite).
Subs: Hansen, Dobbin, Jon Anderson.

Everton 2 - 1 Reading

Premier League Cup; Round 2
Sunday 8 March 2020
Haig Avenue, Southport

Everton's U23s completed another key step in the defence of their Premier League Cup title, despatching Reading after a 2-1 win in Southport on Monday evening Sunday afternoon.

Everton were ahead inside 6 minutes, as Ellis Simms stole in to head home a Matty Foulds corner at the near post.

Dennis Adeniran opened up a two-goal margin for Everton with just 11 minutes gone — Einar Iversen scampered down the left and delivered low, and Adeniran looped his effort past the oncoming keeper into the Royals net.

Reading did pull a goal back late-on, but the Blues had done enough to move on to the last 8 of the competition.

Everton U23s: Tyrer, Astley, Foulds, Markelo, Ouzounidis, Branthwaite, John (93' Onyango), Baningime, Simms (51' Mampala), Adeniran, Iversen (64' Dobbin).
Subs not Used: Leban, John Anderson.


EFL Trophy, 2019-20

Everton U21s were drawn against Crewe Alexandra, Burton Albion and Mansfield Town in Group E of the EFL Trophy for 2019-20.

Mansfield Town 1 - 1 Everton U21s

EFL Trophy; Group E, Game #1
Tuesday 27 August 2019
Mill Field, Mansfield

An Everton U21 side opened their EFL Trophy campaign on Tuesday night with a bonus point against Mansfield Town after winning 4-1 on penalties. The match finished 1-1 at end of normal time after Anthony Gordon's wonder goal had given the Blues the lead at Mill Field.

Everton gave a very good account of themselves in the first half. The young Blues were confident in possession, and brought the ball out well from the back. There were chances for Charsley, Adeniran and Gordon before the latter netted a stunning solo effort just before the half-hour mark. Gordon jinked past three defenders, before curling a beauty into the far corner past Stone in goal.

Baningime was shown a second yellow card on 70 minutes for a late challenge on Sterling-James and Everton battled on with 10 men. Tyrer made several smart stops, reacting well to keep out a Sterling-James flick and getting down low at full stretch to keep out Smith after the break. But he could not keep out a smartly taken Sterling-James goal on 87 minutes.

Mansfield then piled on the pressure into seven minutes of injury time, but the game went to penalties. Both sides took a point from the normal time draw, with an extra point awarded to the shootout winners. And the Blues did it in style, taking it 4-1 with successful penalties from Evans, Foulds, Charsley and Markelo. Tyrer saved from Khan's spot-kick and Sterling-James blazed his effort over the bar, with Markelo sealing the shootout victory.

Everton U21s: Tyrer, Charsley, Baningime [Y:48'; YR:64'], Feeney (c), Foulds, Evans, Gordon, Denny (86' Astley), Markelo, John, Adeniran (68' Simms (88' Mampala)).
Subs not Used: McIntyre, Joe Anderson, Iversen, Carroll

Burton Albion 0 - 2 Everton U21s

EFL Trophy; Group E, Game #2
Tuesday 1 October 2019
Pirelli Stadium, Burton

Goals from Ellis Simms and Antony Evans earned the Blues an excellent Leasing.com Trophy win at Burton Albion.

Ellis Simms was on target early here with a smart low finish. Midfielder Evans struck Everton's second 14 minutes after half-time.

Everton's opener came after just six minutes. Anthony Gordon played in Simms and the striker kept his composure to slide in a cool finish past experienced former West Ham goalkeeper Stephen Bywater.

Everton continued to have the better of the opportunities against their League One opponents and Gordon's snapshot almost caught out Bywater, who did well to turn it around the post.

Just after the half-hour Everton should have doubled their advantage. Gordon wriggled free on the left of the box and when he squared the ball across the face of goal, Simms couldn't force it past Bywater from a couple of yards.

Simms tried to back-heel the rebound into the net but the home defence cleared for a corner from which Morgan Feeney's excellent glancing header was blocked.

The hosts had their moments, too, but Harry Tyrer was nice and safe in the Blues goal and never seriously tested in the opening period. Everton were very well organised and disciplined in their defending.

Home manager Nigel Clough clearly had strong words with his players at the break because Burton started the second half briskly. But, again, Everton were resolute and restricted their opponents to few opportunities. Nathangelo Markelo in the middle of the park was particularly eye-catching.

Everton's second goal came on 59 minutes. Harry Charsley's low shot was parried by Bywater and Evans was on hand to prod home his third goal in as many games.

This was an excellent win for Everton against a far more experienced side and Unsworth's team remain unbeaten this season. The Blues move top of Northern Group E with one fixture remaining, against Crewe Alexandra on 6 November.

Everton U21s: Tyrer, Astley, Gibson, Feeney, Foulds, Adeniran, Charsley, Markelo, Evans (75' Denny), Gordon (87' Mampala), Simms (83' Dobbin).

Crewe Alexandra 2 - 2 Everton U21s

EFL Trophy; Group E, Game #3
Tuesday 5 November 2019
Alexandra Stadium, Crewe

Everton's Under-21s played out a 2-2 against Crewe this evening in the Leasing.com Trophy, booking their place in the next round.

Oumar Niasse struck twice, putting the Blues ahead on two occasions but it was a controversial equaliser that was originally flagged for offside but then given by the referee that ensured the tie finished all square.

Crewe won the ensuing penalty shootout 5-4, earning them the bonus point. For Everton, their overall record allowed them to scrape through to the next round among the best of the group runners-up.

Everton U21s: Tyrer, Astley, Feeney, Gibson, Foulds, Charsley (69' Simms), Markelo, Baningime [Y], Onyango (76' Joe Anderson), John (46' Denny [Y]), Niasse.
Subs not Used: Hansen, Dobbin, Iversen, Mampala.

Everton U21s 0 - 4 Fleetwood Town

EFL Trophy; Round 2
Tuesday 26 November 2019
Goodison Park, Merseyside

Everton Under-21s were beaten heavily by Fleetwood Town in the last 32 of the Leasing.com Trophy at Goodison Park tonight.

It was not by any means a good start for Unsworth's side. Danny Andrew put Fleetwood in front inside 2 mins with a superb volley from the edge of the area from a well-worked corner by the away side, with a lofted cross finding Andrew lurking with intent 18 yards out.

The full-back got over his volley and slammed it into the bottom corner - no chance for Harry Tyrer in the Everton goal.

Everton's evening got worse later in the first half when Beni Baningime received one kick too many and was forced off with an injury, to be replaced by Tyler Onyango.

Fleetwood went into the break a goal up and they doubled their lead with a quarter of an hour to go when Paul Coutts fired home from 20 yards and Paddy Madden made it 3-0 shortly afterwards.

Wes Burns heaped further misery on Unsworth's side with a fourth in the 87th minute, slotting home Lewie Coyle's pass.

Everton U21s: Tyrer, Astley, Gibson, Ouzounidis, Foulds, Adeniran, Baningime [Y:27'] (44' Onyango [Y:54'] (71' Charsley)), Markelo, Evans, Gordon (76' Simms), Niasse.
