U23s suffer Premier League Cup defeat at Norwich

Wednesday 15 February 2017  8 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton's Under-23s were beaten 1-0 defeat at Carrow Road this evening as a goal by Norwich eight minutes from time proved to be the difference.

David Unsworth's side are going great guns in Premier League 2 but their chequered cup for this season continued as Kieran Dowell missed spurned an early opportunity and substitute David Henen, on for the injured Anton Donkor, saw a left-foot shot saved well by Paul Jones.

Harry Charsley and Liam Walsh had chances in the second half but Ebou Adams scored the decisive goal, capitalising on an error by Conor Hunt.

The result means that the Blues' U23s must beat group leaders Portsmouth away Monday 27th February in order to top the group.

Everton U23s: Hunt, Charsley, Feeney, Foulds, Robinson, Dowell, Walsh, Baningime (67' J Williams), Donkor (11' Henen), Broadhead (58' Sambou), C Duffus.
Subs not Used: Hilton, Kiersey.

BTW David Unsworth's side take on Southampton on Monday evening (7pm kick-off), with all supporters eligible for free entry as the Club supports the young Blues' Home Is Where The Heart Is campaign. The game kicks off at 7pm.

As the game is a dedicated fixture to raise awareness and funds for the ‘Home Is Where The Heart Is' campaign, which has as its goal the development of a supported living initiative for young people between the ages of 16 - 23, there will be donation buckets on entry at the turnstiles for fans to show their support.

Tickets are free and are available in the Sir Philip Carter Park End Stand or the Upper Bullens. Tickets can be collected from Wednesday 8 February right up until kick-off on Monday 20 February from Everton One, Everton Two or the Park End Box Office.

Tony, you do it for me, you know what I'm like with modern stuff, and post the score on here every 15 minutes.

Thanks for that information, Patrick, regarding the Monday game, I think there is a few of them coming up but always on a Monday, that's the night I go out with my mates unfortunately so will not see them mores the pity.

In tonight's game the lads seem to be doing better than the game at Goodison when they lost heavily.

It looks like they had a few chances to score but couldn't find the net, Walsh from 25 yards and another 25-yard effort from the returning Joe Williams, plus other chances. The good news was the return of Joe Williams for his first game after a very long absence from the scene with a bad injury. I hope he can get back to the way he was, I rated him more than Tom Davies.

It looked like Liam Walsh had another good game, maybe he was kept back from going with the first team squad to nurse the others through this game tonight. He will get his chance with the first team squad soon enough.

Hope you are right about Liam Walsh, Dave.

What's with this Indian sign that Norwich seem to have over us. Can't seem to beat them at any level.
