Everton U23s 3 - 4 West Ham U23s

Everton U23s were twice leading against West Ham tonight in the penultimate game of their Premier League 2 season, but ended up the losing side at Finch Farm.

Everton have slipped to 11th in the PL2 after a poor season that saw David Unsworth depart as manager barely 2 weeks ago, while the visitors are riding high at 2nd.

Emilio Lawrence, just 16, gets to start this one as Everton bend over backwards to try and persuade the youngster that his place is here with the Blues and to sign a new contract.

Everton drove into a 2-0 lead with goals from Lewis Dobbin and Tom Cannon, only for the visitors score either side of half-time to equalize.

Everton went ahead through Luke Butterfield but two more goals from the Hammers would steal the game from the Blues.

Everton U23s: Crellin, Mills, Campbell, Astley, Welch, Butterfield, Whitaker (31' Hunt), Price, Dobbin, Cannon, Lawrence (67' McAllister).
Subs not Used: Tyrer, Anderson, Garcia.

Everton take the lead after 9 minutes with a goal from Dobbin. That's a very young team apart from Crellin and Cannon.

Cannon has made it 2-0 after 22 minutes, information from another website.

This game is at Finch Farm but not being televised because Crystal Palace are playing Leeds tonight and so our U23s game cannot be shown in the wonderful world of Premier League football!

2-1 half time

Patrick Boyland:

2-1 now. Perkins for West Ham

Leighton Baines and Jose Baxter once again assisting John Ebbrell tonight.

2-0 Everton! Dobbin frees Cannon who dinks over Hegyi. Classy finish!

Patrick Boyland:

Everton retake the lead! Luke Butterfield converts the rebound after Cannon's free kick struck the post. 3-2 after 53 mins.

West Ham equalise through Perkins. Everton pegged back from 2-0 up.

Oko-Flex puts west Ham ahead but Everton are annoyed that Ryan Astley wasn't allowed back on the pitch after changing a ripped jersey. 4-3 for the visitors

Really good curved run and left foot finish from Simms for Hearts against Dundee yesterday.

Came on as sub and it was a very good clean strike.

Really difficult to know quite what level he's at as a player.

I wonder if Simms will be a Ted McDougal type of player- not great at the basics but can score goals?

Never heard of Ted McDougall, Dave, but Simms certainly looks like someone who will score goals if presented with chances.

Whether that's good enough is unclear. You could make a case that Niasse was that sort of player too, I suppose.

Robert (11), not sure how old you are Robert but on the day that Everton beat Southampton 8-0 Ted McDougall scored nine goals for Bournemouth in an F.A cup mane versus Margate, don’t know if this is a record for the FA cup.

He was transferred to Man. Unt not long after that game and played for various clubs after that, I think he played for Scotland a few times after starting his career with Liverpool without playing in their first team.
