Peterborough Utd U23s 0 - 1 Everton U23s
With a handful of U23s press-ganged into action at Stamford Bridge last night, the rest of the squad is battling it out against Peterborough United at the Weston Homes Stadium in a Premier League Cup group game at lunchtime today.
Plenty of action and chances but no goals until near the end of the game when Everton took the lead. Whitaker broke clear after Hughes intercepted a poorly taken Peterborough free-kick. Whitaker played a super pass to Stan Mills who drilled home a great finish.
Everton held on to mark up a fine revenge win after losing 3-0 in the home group game at the start of the month. The win puts Everton 2nd behind their hosts today with two away games to play, at Sheffield Utd and Burnley.
Everton U23s: Tyrer, John, Anderson, Welch, Astley, Hughes, Mills, Price, Cannon (75' Kouyate), Warrington, Whitaker.
Subs not Used: Barrett, McAllister, Hunt, Campbell

Ill stick this here as I dont see it elsewhere. In the 3rd round of the FA Youth Cup Sheff Utd beat Millwall on penalties, so we now play them in the Fourth Round. The match seems to be scheduled for a 1900 hr kick off, Saturday 15th January, hopefully at Goodison with a live stream.

Ill look forward to that FA Youth Cup match match v Sheffield in January.

It sounds like the goal was very similar to a goal against Fulham, with Whitaker breaking and laying on a great through-ball for Stan Mills to score.

Anyone seen them in person? Opinions on them as athletes, quickness, pace?
