Brewster marks Southport move with debut goal

Sunday 1 January 2017  21 Comments  [Jump to last]
Promising Under-18s striker Delial Brewster joined Southport on loan until the end of the season today and wasted no time getting on the scoresheet.

The 19-year-old, who enjoyed a rich vein of form for Everton U-18s last season beefore his progress was disrupted by injury, has been hoping to make the step up to Everton's Under-23s this season but has been handed a chance in the National League with his hometown club.

Brewster went straight into the team and scored on his debut in a 3-2 win over Wrexham.

I would like to have seen this kid loaned out at a higher level, seems to score every time he plays.

Tranmere or Wigan would have been ideal, see if he could do it at an alright little level.

Maybe this is the spring board for another deal next season to a more competitive league before kicking back on with us.

Tranmere and Southport are in the same league.

Wigan are 3 leagues higher. Far too high for him at this stage.

Anyone know where McAleny is? We've signed a couple of 20-year-old strikers and must have half-a-dozen strikers of this age. Won't be long before we have nearly as many out on loan than Chelsea.

Brewster has scored a stoppage time goal for Southport and it looks likely to prove the winner as his team hold the lead 2-1.

Apologies it was first-half stoppage time and now Wrexham have a penalty which they've converted 2-2.

Surprised Wrexham haven't requested a partnership!

Michael Owen has told Southport News that Brewster would be playing for Barcelona by now if not for Koeman and the Everton fans.

Can Brewster give Koeman some of his millions?

Micheal Owen's race horses told Everton News he's a wanker.

Dermot (#7),

Meanwhile Koeman has told Brewster his career will be judged a failure if he doesn't leave Everton and play for Barcelona.

Phil @2.

Didn't realise Tranmere had dropped down so far tbh, maybe Wigan might be too big a jump, but at the same time Brewster is 19 not 16.

I fully expected him to be a regular in the U23 so it's very important to see him getting game time now and I'm sure he will be a success.

Phil (#12): I guess we post from a different perspective. I was having a pop at the media and their relationship with former Liverpool players. You are having a pop at our manager. Fair enough. Neither of our posts will achieve anything!

The way the old red favs are having a go at EFC, makes me think they are worried by what's going on at Goodison these days. They should stay at home and count the money they earned by becoming legends for never winning the Premier League Title. The Trophy hardest to win in World Football.

McAleny is on loan at Wigan and has made 13 appearances scoring 4 goals.

Connor Grant has just gone out on loan now, he's a creative left-sided midfielder. Is he nowhere near ready, or are we just overloaded with left-sided midfielders!

Just wondering.

Clive (#17), thanks for that. I thought that his loan to Wigan had ended.

Anthony(#18), wasn't Grant recently returned from being on loan to Ipswich as he wasn't getting match time?

Those stats Clive gave us are actually from McAleny's stint at Wigan last season – not 2016-17.

There is nothing indicating he is currently on loan. I believe he is still at Finch Farm but has appeared in just two U23 games, both in the EFL Trophy.

If it means anything, he wore the the #68 shirt in those games, down the pecking order from his previous #35. But Martinez gave him a nice three-year contract so he may not leave until the summer.

Given his heroics in the Dallas Cup last summer, it's surprising that he hasn't had more game time with the U23s.

He must not be anywhere near the same level as Calvert-Lewin who's less than 12 months older and Anthony Evans who is younger than him and who has been an U23 regular for 2 years. Fraser Hornby is also creating a stir for the U18s with his goals and skills.

Doesn't look good for Brewster at Premier League level.

It's Garbutt who's at Wigan, presently injured I think, McGeady at Preston.

It's a tough one for Brewster to break into our U23s even with Niasse, Calvert-Lewin, being played at 9, Dowell and Charsley getting two of other attacking positions, then Dyson and Duffus also in the mix.

Hopefully he will get regular goals and make a career for himself in a higher league but you'd have to say not at Premier League level.
