I am endeavouring to research Everton's history in the FA Youth Cup from it's inception in 1952. I believe the very first game was at Anfield, when Everton recorded a 3-0 win in October 1952.

According to the book 'Sons of United' – a complete record of Manchester United in the Youth Cup, Everton statistics were provided by a gentleman called Barry Hewitt. I wonder if he is a contributor to ToffeeWeb or if anyone knows how I can contact him?

One of the earliest youth cup matches I saw was around 1954-55 on a Wednesday afternoon when Everton drew 2-2 with Man. United youths, I think Derek Temple scored both Everton goals and Duncan Edwards scored at least one of United's.

Another game was against Liverpool at Anfield, Liverpool won 2-0, Phil Thompson played for Liverpool and the lad who came from Manchester, who died tragically a few years ago, played for Everton, his name escapes me at the moment, I'm ashamed to say.

Another young lad I watched in a few youth games was Davie Bonner who came from Scotland, he never made it at Goodison, he went back home and possibly played for Dundee United.

I know of Barry, he's part of the heritage society but the email address given for him is out of date.

Great list and information Andy, I bet I saw dozens of those games, especially at Goodison Park, and two or three away but do not remember lots of them.
