John Lundstram has been developed as a football player by Everton from a very early age and signed a full-time scholarship in July 2010.  He started making immediate progress in the U18s and at the end of his first season in the Academy, in June 2011, he signed a 2-year professional contract with Everton.

Lundstram was one of only two England players to make the 22-man tournament select squad after the 2011 European U17 Championships in Serbia. The report claimed that Lundstram was an “influential catalyst in launching attacking moves.”  He would go on to represent England at U18, U19 and U20.

In February 2013, he joined Doncaster Rovers on loan. He made his full league début for the club in a 1–1 draw against Yeovil Town on 23 February 2013. Lundstram went on to make over a dozen appearances for Rovers, becoming a key part of the side that lifted the League One trophy come the end of the season.

His contract at Everton was extended for a further two years in 2013.

On 28 November 2013, Lundstram joined Football League Championship side Yeovil Town on loan until January. He made his debut against Watford, with Yeovil winning 0–3. He assisted Joe Edwards for the third goal. On 3 December, he scored on his second appearance for the club in a 1–0 win against Blackpool.

His loan at Yeovil was extended until March 2014, when he was switched to Leyton Orient, where the Everton player would go all the way to a League One playoff final at Wembley in May.  Lundstram came on as a substitute for the second period of extra time with the game against Rotherham tied at 2-2.  In the penalty shootout, he slotted home Orient's second (after former Everton player Kieran Agard had scored the first for Rotherham) but could only watch on as Rotherham won 4-3.    

He joined the senior squad for pre-season training in July 2014 and went to Thailand to play in the friendly against Leicester City but did not really impress in his midfield role.  He would later go out on a season-long loan with Blackpool in the Championship.

But his temporary side were having a nightmare of a season, and by late December a decision was made to terminate the loan deal and bring Lundstram back to Finch Farm. The 20 year-old midfielder played 17 times for the Championship side in what is his fourth spell out on loan in the last couple of seasons as he builds his first-team experience in the lower leagues.

That process continued into the new year with another brief loan spell at Leyton Orient.
