Everton Under-18s will play Fulham in the 3rd Round of the FA Youth Cup on Friday 10 December at Goodison Park (7pm kick-off).

Last season, Everton reached the quarter-finals of the competition after good wins over Manchester City and Chelsea but they have failed to win this trophy since 1998.

I think Fulham U18s are in the league below Everton but are doing very well this season while Everton U18s are not doing too well.

We have some promising players coming together who are eligible for this competition so I hope we have a good go at trying to win this prestigious cup as we are long overdue at winning it.

I'd say Everton have got to take this competition seriously, Dave, for the sake of confidence of the younger players, who are now playing at a much higher level each week, with mixed results.

The message would be: "You might be finding the age gap difficult whilst you are slowly making the transition to men's football, but look how good you are doing when you drop back down to your own age group, boys."

That's my line of thought anyway.

Hear! Hear! Tony. I know some of the young players who are eligible for this age group are regularly playing in the higher age group teams, but we should put out our strongest possible team for this competition.
