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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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 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.
