Everton Academy midfielder Mackenzie Hunt has signed a new 1-year contract that will run to the end of June 2023.
The 20-year-old played a small number of games for the Under-23s last season as he has fought to combat legacy issues from a serious ankle problem sustained back in 2019, after he signed his first professional contract.
Come August, he will be looking to play a much more significant part in the newly revamped Under-21s competitions under Paul Tait, who helped him work through the Under-18s:
“This is a big season for me, I need to keep my body in good shape, work hard and have a good start.

“I am not thinking about too much beyond the next six months. The past few seasons have been tough and I am excited to get back and stay fit and play.
“I was delighted when I heard the news and I am excited to get back to work with Paul Tait. I really enjoyed playing under him, he gave me a lot of confidence and improved me as a player.
“I have filled out over the past few years, so the physical side of my game has improved.”
Everton Director of Football, Kevin Thelwell, added: “We're pleased for Mackenzie to continue his journey with Everton and look forward to supporting him for what we hope will be a successful season ahead.
“Mackenzie progressed under the guidance of Paul Tait during their time together with our Under-18s and we are confident he will benefit once again from the experience and knowledge of Paul and his Under-21s coaching staff.”
