He scored a cracking goal earlier in the season for the U18s; you won't see a better goal from any of the other Everton players, at any level, this season.
Best of luck, Tom, with your career.

Sorry about that lame pun, but all the good lines had already been taken by Derek and Des.

What we lack is a RODriguez and 'Coleman' to help prepare the fire.
