Everton U18s 2 - 1 Middlesbrough U18s

Everton Under-18s beat Middlesbrough 2-1 in the U18 Premier League (North) at Finch Farm on Saturday.

Rafael Garcia struck his first league goal in almost two years midway through the first half, having had a lengthy lay-off with a serious injury.

Charlie Whitaker added a second soon after, which would prove to be the decisive goal despite the visitors halving the deficit 10 minutes from time.

The game saw another new name getting an outing at this level: Emilio Lawrence, coming on as a sub for the last 10 minutes or so.

Everton U18s: Stewart, Mallon (67' Jagne), Lowey, Tierney, Kristensen, Hagan, McAllister, Warrington (67' Quintyne), Garcia, Whitaker (83' Lawrence) Metcalfe [Y:77']. Subs not Used: Leban, Thompson.

Emilio Lawrence is an exciting attacker who’s played regularly for England u15 and is in the current England u16 squad. He’s a youngster who’s been coveted by City and the RS in the past but we got him. He’s still young enough to be officially in our U15 squad, so won’t be moving up as a Scholar until 2022, but talented enough to get regular u18 game time as a Schoolboy in the next 15 months. I’m sure we’ll treat him very carefully given his age, and maybe limit his games initially but one to watch out for as one of our most highly rated youngsters.

Phill (1) what is Lawrence's history? Where is he from? How big is he?

Emilio? What nationality is he?

Dave, I don’t know a lot about him, I’ve picked up odd bits over recent years and kept an eye out for his first appearance at u18. There’s a picture of him with England u15 last year and he looks a reasonable size, as big as other guys standing next to him, not as big as two bigger guys in the row, and at that age is thin and still to fill out. In that team he was playing with an 11 on his back but can play across the front line. So closer to Lewis Dobbin size than Ellis Simms build, more skill than raw power. It’s likely we’ll try to keep a lid on anything released to the press, so one to keep a quiet eye out for as he develops.
