The U23s secured a fine win against The Gunners in Southport, with goals from Tom Cannon and Katia Kouyate.
This game kicked off an hour before the big one involving the senior teams at Goodison Park.
No Simms, no Branthwaite, but only the latter in the first-team squad at Goodison Park tonight.
It was getting late into the second half when Tom Cannon scored. Katiya Kouyate came on as a sub and made sure of the fine win in added time.

If the first team continues to play 433 (which I think they should) I wonder if Onyango will get an opportunity over the xmas period when we inevitably will lose some players to overuse and injury as our depth is so alarmingly poor. Or even Warrington, who has often impressed me.

Even allowing for Unsworths usual hyperbole, “ best of season, etc”, this was indeed a fine win against an Arsenal side that could have gone second in PL2 if they had won. Though in fairness to Unsworth hes made some interesting comments on Cannon and Kouyate.
Katia Kouyate had a big impact when he came on “ Substitute Kouyate, who laid on Everton's opener, then made the points safe when he slotted home in stoppage time.”
It seems Kouyate is not fully fit yet, so itll be an interesting selection choice for the Youth Cup from our young attackers playing u18 and U23 -Kouyate, Whitaker, Mills, the two schoolboys Martin Sherif and Emilio Lawrence plus Francis Okoronkwo also in the mix as he comes back from injury.
Then theres competition in midfield with the likes of Price, Butterfield and u18 Jenson Metcalfe. Throw in 5 defenders going for 4 defensive positions in Mallon at right back, Welch, Campbell, Tierney as centre backs, schoolboy Ishe Samuels- Smith looking promising at left back, or maybe Campbell there. The selection for this Fridays Youth Cup match will be a good indication of just whom the coaches rate in the various positions.
