Stoke City U18s 1 - 4 Everton U18s

The young Blues from Everton's Academy continued their campaign in the U18 Premier League tonight with a fantastic late win away at Stoke City.

Having fallen behind midway through the first half, Jenson Metcalfe got Everton back on level terms on 68 minutes.

His strike was the first of four goals in a stunning 10-minute spell from the Toffees. Substitute Tom Cannon — who was introduced on the hour-mark — put Everton ahead before Luke Butterfield doubled the Blues' advantage.

Cannon then completed his brace 12 minutes from time to wrap up a stirring victory for Everton.

Everton U18s: Stewart, Welch, Hagan, Kristensen, Lowey (62' Quintyne), Jagne (62' McAllister), Butterfield, Mills, Metcalfe, Garcia (45' Cannon), Barker.
Subs not Used: Leban, Campbell.

Michael, not sure about your source but all other internet sources are showing a 1-4 win for Everton with four second half goal in 12 minutes from Jenson Metcalfe, Tom Cannon 2, and Luke Butterfield.

Phill (1)yes that is the final score from Stoke who were winning 1-0 until that twelve minute blitz, with the goalscorers as you named them.

Wow, that's bizarre... it was from the Official Website and I know it had the subs at 62 mins and FT for full time. I was going to add them bove... but then got dragged away on something else.

Thanks, lads. "Must do better!"

Michael (3)Michael never blame yourself where the official website is concerned, it’s probably Kenwright or Denise’s fault!!

Jagne seems to be getting regular games now. Must be very hard for a 16-year-old to come over from Sweden, especially in a lockdown.

Robert, Jagne is still essentially a 1st year Scholar so plenty of time for him to progress, he clearly wasn’t ready for u23s football when we first signed him and is being allowed to develop in the u18s it seems. It was his poor pass from midfield to a Stoke player which resulted in their goal.
