Everton U18s were knocked out this season's FA Youth Cup at the first hurdle by Ipswich Town at Goodison Park tonight.The first half was a cagey affair, with real chances at a premium, despite the home side dominating possession. But the visitors scored soon after the restart to put the blues behind.
As the half continued, the visitors went further ahead when El Mizouni found the bottom corner of Hansen's net with a drilled effort from 20 yards after the Everton keeper, Hansen, had just made a great save to keep the deficit down to one goal.
But the Blues responded well with Mampala's shot-turned-cross falling into the path of substitute Adedoyin, who tapped in from close-range. However, it proved too little, too late with Everton failing to progress for another year.
Everton U18s: Hansen, Moore, Anderson, Collins, Richards, Denny, Iversen, Kerr (65' Adedoyin), Mampala (88' Scully), Gordon (84' Simms), Duke-McKenna.
Subs not Used: Hilton, Warren.

And even before today, I've wondered why there is no link to the 'Members Only' section from the main OS page? I always have to access some article to find a link in a side panel for that section... I don't think EFC will win many more prizes for their web site, as this is frankly quite daft! .

You would have thought they'd have sorted it by now, or did Koeman run off with the transmission link too. Well okay dat ish football Jim, but not ash we know it.

Pleased to see these players for the first time and several caught my eye. I thought we played the better football and always looked to be in control of the game but failing to create few clear chances.
Gordon oozes class and cockiness till he disappeared in second-half; Kerr and Denny commanded midfield, Moore provided penetration on the right. I was disappointed that Ellis Simms didn't feature more in the game especially as I couldn't decide whether Mampala on an off-night was worse with the ball (consistently losing possession) or without it (offside).
