Burnley U18s 1 - 2 Everton U18s
Everton U18s travel the short distance to Burnley for another encounter with their counterparts in the U18 Premier League (North).
This follows an earlier game just 2 weeks ago in the U18 Premier League Cup, when the Blues missed an early penalty and ended up losing 3-1.
However, in the League, the young Blues are looking for revenge and their third win after a tough start to the season. Both teams now have a similar form record in the league: Won 2, Drawn 1, Lost 2 but Burnley have the best goal difference (+5) and lie 3rd while Everton's goal difference is —1 and they lie 7th.
Burnley went ahead from the penalty spot after Leban brought a man down. But Jenson Metcalfe restored parity with a lovely curling shot just after the half-hour mark.
However, in the second half, Martin Sherif was on target again for the young Blues to exact sweet revenge for that cup defeat earlier this season.
Everton U18s: Leban, Mallon, Wright, Jones [Y:59'], Tierney, Metcalfe, Barker, Apter (79' Djankpata), Sherif [Y:71'], Lawrence, Heath.
Subs not Used: Graham, Coughlan, Smikle-James, Trialist.

Another week goes by with no sign of Francis Okoronkwo making an appearance.
And I saw someone noted that Zan-Luk Leban, who had been played in six straight games for the U23s, had been 'demoted' for this one, with goalkeeper Jak Stewart going the other way, and sitting out the game on the bench at West Ham yesterday afternoon.
Maybe Unsworth showing some tough love or assigning blame for their dreadful early-season record so far?

I think they've been better so far this season, fingers crossed. They have been posting the U18 Premier League line-ups and a timeline for each game in the Match Centre.
They didn't do the U17 Premier League Cup last season, which was a pity, and seems they are skipping the U18 Premier League Cup this season, even though it's back as it was pre-Covid... so you d have a point.
I cross-check with the Youthhawk site and the GOT Youth Thread. Twitter seems very unreliable.

In the end, with a wee bit of common info sharing, we get there!
