David Unsworth's men earned the right to play the Scots after beating Espanyol in the semi-final.
Celtic beat Real Betis in the other game to set up a clash with the Blues' second string.
Harry Charsley, scorer of the winner in the first game, put Everton ahead after 36 minutes with a curling effort and that's the way it stayed to the final whistle. Captain Liam Walsh was suspended for this one after his red card in the first game.
Everton U21s: Hewelt; Jones, Robinson, Beningamie, Feeny; Foulds, Charsley, Evans (67' Kiersey); Henen (88' Holland), Sambou (70' C Duffus), Dyson.
Subs not Used: Gray, Broadhead, Yarney.

Henen caught the eye with strong running and good all round game, but he's not an out and out striker. Duffus when he came on didn;t make much of an impression. New boy Sambou is lively but raw. Robinson was good at full back. Another young lad, Baningime, very solid in the holding midfield role.

Menen, on the other hand, had a great game according to the official team sheet?!?

I had to laugh every time the commentator said Menen..

DR Congo was originally Belgium Congo & the official language is FRENCH. Does this solve the mystery?
Henen aka Menen is Belgium. Made me laugh a lot too. Nice to see the match live on YouTube also.

As is pointed out there, this was mostly a second string U21s, so they did well. On the commentator calling Henen, Menen, apparently he was innocently repeating a mistake in the programme!

Charlsey was good and his goal took a slight deflection, Henen was okay (his strike partner had an amazing work rate allowing him more room). More clinical play in box area and we would have had a few more, particularly after the sending off for the Celtic player in second half.
BTW Walsh wasn't playing as he was suspended after the semi-final.
Overall a good game. Nice to see ex-players Jeffers and Alan Harper mixing with the small crowd, and also Brian Flynn there (I think he is a scout for Everton).

Seems that Duffus and Kiersey came on as subs... any idea who for?
