Academy trio pen new deals

15 July  8 Comments  [Jump to last]
Three members of Everton's Finch Farm Academy have extended their contracts with Everton by another year.

Harry Charsley, Tyrone Duffus and Antonee Robinson have all penned extensions that tie them to the club until next summer.

Winger Charsley is an established member of the Under-21s setup under David Unsworth who will be hoping to use the next year as an opportunity to start knocking at the door of first team.

Duffus, meanwhile, is hoping to follow the example of his brother Courtney in establishing himself in Unsworth's U21s side and Robinson is looking to a season free of injury after spending a long spell out with a knee problem last term.

Well done for getting this sorted. Sometimes waiting for something can bring out the best in a player, getting them to go the extra mile, but when there is nothing to play for as its the summer break, just bleeding do it!!

Talking of young players, Ryan Ledson and Jonjoe Kenny both played for England U19 in a 2-1 victory over Croatia in a game that had no bearing on the final table as England had already qualified. They now play Italy in the semi-final on Thursday.

Callum Connolly didn't play, he has been sent home to receive treatment on an injury he got in an earlier game versus France.

Good luck to all the lads. Experience dictates that most of the youngsters won't make the grade with us but I firmly believe the vast majority have the talent to make a living out of football either at Everton or elsewhere, as always many diverse factors will decide.

I am not overly familiar with Duffus junior but I wouldn't be at all surprised if the other two make the step up.

Robinson seems to be getting camera time on the OS and comes across as a mature, level-headed individual.

I have watched Charsley play for a few years and although he doesn't set the world alight he seems to epitomise the blend of graft and ability that Unsworth has brought out in all the kids. Perfectly capable of getting a chance in the first team.

Good luck to them all.
