Chorley 1 - 3 Everton U23s
Lewis Dobbin scored his third pre-season hat-trick for the Under-23s as they beat Chorley this evening.
The young striker had already bagged hat-tricks against both Warrington Rylands and Guiseley earlier in pre-season, after playing for the first team in their practice match against Accrington Stanley at Finch Farm.
The 18-year-old took less than 10 minutes to find the net after a great forward pass from Tom Cannon.
Chorley equalised before the break, but Dobbin restored the lead with a right-footed shot under the keeper from a Stanley Mills cross.
A few minutes before full time, Dobbin completed his hat-trick with another lovely finish which found the back of the net off the far post.
Everton U23s: Tyrer, Quirk (70' Hunt), Anderson, Astley, Welch, Butterfield (65' Warrington), Mills, Dobbin, Cannon (60' McAllister), Price, Whitaker.

Dobbin a man boy against men. Very impressive skill wise and physically. And Astley impressed in defence. Not scared to mix it with the big lads.

Tony (16), how did Seb Quirk do, was he playing full-back or midfield?

I feared for Dobbin after that long-term injury but he's clearly back to doing what he does best.

I think it was McAllister who was ready to come on with his shirt on the wrong way round - Rhino saw the funny side.

Dobbin should be given a chance to show his ability. What's to lose?

Just highlights, but I liked our youngsters looking to turn into the attack right away.
First time having a look at Dobbin. Lively going forward. Besides his goals, he laid off to teammates a couple times when he saw they had a better opening.
Wish them all luck wherever football takes them. And Dobbin, pre-season or no, 10 goals in 4 games is some return.

Always enjoy you and others talking about our youngsters. 19th birthday come January for Dobbins. Hope he stays healthy so we can see continuous improvement over the next 2 seasons.
Maybe behind the fair on this. Rafa has moved Dobbin into 1st Team training.
