Southport 1 - 2 Everton U23s

Everton U23s came back from giving up a first-half goal to win their final pre-season friendly game 2-1 at their adopted home ground against hosts Southport.

A couple of very well-taken goals from Charlie Whitaker and Sean McAllister completed the turnaround after the interval. Whitaker weaved his way forward but unleashed an unstoppable shot that flew into the top corner from outside the area. McAllister, on as a substitute, dribbled down the left-wing before shooting into the bottom corner of the Southport goal from outside the box.

Everton goalkeeper Zan-Luk Leban saved a late penalty to ensure another impressive win for David Unsworth's side, who take a 100% pre-season record into the start of the Premier League 2 season next Monday when they travel to Blackburn Rovers.

Everton U23s came from behind to win 2-1 with goals from Charlie Whittaker and Sean McAllister. Our young promising keeper Leban saved a late penalty. Two good goals worth having a look at on the link:

Two very good goals, Tony. I'll look forward to seeing more of the U23s and U18s this season.

Thanks Tony, cracking goal from Charlie Whittaker and another good one from the young Irish lad Sean McAllister, both of whom played in the U18s last season, I hope the first team players have a look at these goals, they don't shoot often enough from distance.

I really enjoyed what I saw of the U23s & U18s last season and I'm looking forward to trying to catch a few more of their matches, as and when available online, this season. Maybe it's the hope that we may have one or two stars in the making, or just the nature of the game at those levels.

I like this pushing 16-19 year-olds into the U-23 squad.

Being on the younger side of a 3-5 year difference at that age is significant.
