U23s roll to another victory

25 August  7 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton Under-23s won for the fourth game in a row in all competitions this afternoon, hammering Leicester City U23s 4-1 away from home.

Harry Charsley got the Blues' second string off to a great start, firing home his third goal in two games with 16 minutes gone.

The winger then turned provider twice in the second half, first when he collected the ball from Gethin Jones and centred for Courtney Duffus to head home.

Charsley then teed up Antony Evans to head in Everton's third before Calum Dyson banged in a fourth late on which capped off a third successive Premier League 2 victory for David Unsworth's side.

Leicester scored a consolation in stoppage time to make it 4-1 at the whistle.

Everton U23s: Hewelt, Jones {c}, Kenny, Connolly, Robinson, Baningime, Davies (Walsh 60'), Charsley (Henen 81'), Dowell, Dyson, C Duffus (Evans 75').
Subs not used: Renshaw, Foulds, Holland.

It's all looking so good at the club. Fantastic performance.

Another great result - Unsy's doing a great job.

Can anybody tell me if the GK Hewelt shows signs of stepping up to challenge Robles (or even Stek!) at some point in the near future?

Way too early to judge Hewelt on that front — maybe after a loan we can see. I'd think Russell Griffiths (currently at Cheltenham) would be ahead of him.

Peter (#3),

I also rate Russell Griffiths but I haven't seen Hewelt. According to Koeman, talking about goalkeepers the other day, he said he needs three keepers at the club and currently he says he has Stekelenburg, Robles and Hewelt as his three goalies.

I wonder how far Evans is from breaking through... One player that did seems to break into a very strong U21 side very young...

Ledson going has dampened my hopes for any of the kids but hey ho...

I echo your sentiments (Dave, #5) ... I think we need to stop regarding them as kids as many are either the same age or only slightly younger than Stones, Lukaku etc. .. and they may need to adopt the same mindset too if they don't think so already.
