Tyrer signs new Everton deal

Tuesday, 11 January, 2022 12comments  |  Jump to last
Everton goalkeeper Harry Tyrer has extended his contract with the club for a further 3½ years, the club have announced.

The 20-year-old's existing terms were set to expire this summer but he has now committed his future to the Blues until 2025.

A regular with the Under-23s, Tyrer has increasingly been involved with the senior side and was named as a substitute on a few occasions last season when Jordan Pickford and Robin Olsen picked up injuries.

Regarded as a promising prospect, it is expected that he could be sent out on loan to a lower-division side in the near future to build his experience.

Maybe even a spell at a non-league side would be good for him.

I’ve watched Marine’s young goalie, Bayleigh Passant, at close quarters over the past couple of years. He’s played in big games against very good opponents, and run of the mill league games on cold, wet nights.

He’s done very well at times, and he’s also dropped some clangers. Either way, he’s constantly had spectators down his neck about 2 yards away, and he must hear every word of criticism and encouragement. It will make or break him, and a few more young lads would benefit from such grounding.

Good luck to Harry.

Playing non-league football didn't hurt Jordan Pickford's development Peter.

Two loan spells in the Confererence when just 18 and 19, first with Darlington, then Alferton.

So what do you think, U-23 watchers? Is this young man Pickford's eventual successor? The club certainly seems to think it's possible.

I wouldn't claim to be one of the regular U23 watchers Jay, but from what I have seen, what I like is that he commands his box and the defence.

Something I always like in a keeper.

I’ve not yet seen Tyrer have a bad game. And I’ve seen some very decent stuff from him, including commanding his box and shot stopping. The interesting thing for me is that it’s difficult to say whether an outfield player can step up to the first team, given the greater quality of the players he’ll face. But for a keeper a shot is a shot; a cross is a cross; we can judge his ability to cope with a shot or a cross ALMOST regardless of what level he’s playing at. Can we?

I watched Leban a few times last year and though he was the one with the look of a future Everton goalie. Then when first watching Tyrer I was sceptical because I thought he’d be inferior to Leban. Not a bit of it, looks another good prospect and I’m glad he’s been backed by the club. Of the two of these young keepers it will be interesting to see who comes out on top. (Leban is 19 , Tyrer 20) .

I'd agree with that Brent. Never seen Harry have a bad game.

First noticed him away to Stoke 2-3 seasons ago in the Youth Cup. We blew 2-0 lead and it went to penalties in which Harry was outstanding to win us the game.

Some might remember his single appearance for the first team v Preston in a preseason friendly. Kept a clean sheet and kept well. The standout about his football that day was a feature of modern day goalkeeping. His distribution with boot and hand.

Is he the reason Everton seems happy in letting Joao Virginia run down his contract on loan to Sporting?

Tony (6), I like both ‘keepers too, and agree with Brent and Jay about Tyrer’s capabilities doubt if I’ve seen have a poor game.

In the game Jay is referring to he had a gimmick in lining up to face the penalty takers, he stood just behind the goal line and made loads of movements to put the kicker off his game then came and stood on the line just before the penalty was taken and saved at least two of the penalties. I think this play acting has been banned now.

Really good news for him. Opportunity to kick on, probably on loan, to show he can handle it. I'm sure it takes a much tougher mental character to succeed at non-league than U23s.

Agree with those who rate Leban.

Also thought our new boy Nash looked promising. Very agile and excellent on the ball. But very small and slight for a GK.

Agree with all saying not seen him having a bad game, not that I have seen every game, but try to watch our 'young guns' whenever possible. Having a proper TV Channel would help me see more !

Message to Harry, " Have a word with Lewis Dobbin to follow suit " !

Interesting comments about Leban; I always thought Tyrer was the best young keeper we had. Looked good in that pre-season with the seniors.

Met Harry & his Dad in a boozer watching the Pickford/VVD COVID derby. Lovely lad & big Evertonian with feet firmly on the ground. Knows how hard he has to work to make it, which impressed me. Well done on earning your new contract fella & good luck.
