FA U18 Premier League

The U18 Premier League replaced the Premier Academy League at the start of the 2012-13 season with the aim to enhance youth development and help transition players between the Academy and First Team.

The league set-up has been modified as follows for the 2016-17 season:

  • In total, 24 clubs compete in the U18 Premier League, with each of the clubs having applied for ‘Category One’ status in the Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP). There are 16 clubs from the Premier League, five clubs from the Championship and one club from League One.
  • The format has changed since the 2012-13 season, with the 24 clubs now split into two separate regional groups, North and South.
  • Clubs will play each opposing club in their own regional group twice, both home and away.  Overall, the regional phase will last for 22 matches.
  • All 24 clubs will then be split into three Tier Groups of 8 sides each, based on their final Regional Group positions.
  • The top four clubs from each regional group will progress to the Tier One Group where they will face each other once either home and away as the national champion is determined.
  • The next four clubs (5th thru 8th) from each regional group will go into the Tier Two Group where they will face each other once either home and away.
  •  The last four clubs (9th thru 12th) from each regional group will go into the Tier Three Group where they will face each other once either home and away.

Age requirement: Clubs are not allowed to field any outfield players outside of the U18 age category. However, the goalkeeper is permitted to come from the U19 age category.

The 12 clubs in the North Group of the 2016-17 U18 Premier League are:

Blackburn Rovers, Derby County, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Middlesbrough, Newcastle United, Sunderland, Stoke City, West Bromwhich Albion & Wolverhampton Wanderers

The 12 clubs in the South Group of the 2016-17 U18 Premier League are:

Arsenal, Brighton & Hove Albion, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Fulham, Leicester City, Norwich City, Reading, Southampton, Swansea City, Tottenham Hotspur & West Ham United.

Under-18 Premier League – Match Details, 2017-18

The section below contains team details, scorers, and brief match reports for Everton Under-18 matches during the 2016-17 Season.

Everton 0 - 0 Stoke City

U18 Premier League North, Game #1
Saturday 12 August 2017
USM Finch Farm


Goals from Gordon and Adedoyin gave the Blues a 2-goal lead at the break but a red card for Stoke player in the second half gave them a false sense of security and they allowed two goals in the last 25 minutes to squander the lead and two of the three points.

Everton U18s: Hilton, Duke-McKenna, Moore, Denny [Y], Ouzounidis, Scully, Adedoyin (69' Carroll), Kerr, Simms (63' Zuk), Gordon, Mampala [Y].
Subs not Used: Murphy, Anderson, Richards.

Everton 1 - 3 Derby County

U18 Premier League North, Game #2
Saturday 19 August 2017
USM Finch Farm


In windy conditions, the visitors opened the scoring on 18 minutes when Connor Dixon seized on a defensive error and finished with aplomb.

Paul Tait's troops responded well and Korede Adedoyin's second goal in as many games got the Toffees back on level terms six minutes before the interval.

The Rams, however, managed to hit the front again on the stroke of half-time, with Jayden Bogle's effort allowed to stand despite a strong challenge on goalkeeper Joe Hilton in the build-up.

The hosts enjoyed more possession in the second period but could not find another way through a resolute Derby defence.

Dixon then rounded off a swift counter-attack to register his second of the game late on, before Everton were reduced to 10 men for the final few minutes when Adedoyin was sent off.

Everton U18s: Hilton, Duke-McKenna, Moore, Denny, Ouzounidis, Scully (65' Zuk), Adedoyin [R:87'], Kerr, Simms, Gordon (75' Anderson), Mampala.
Subs not Used: Murphy, Richards.

West Bromwich Albion 1 - 7 Everton

U18 Premier League North, Game #3
Saturday 26 August 2017
USM Finch Farm


A four-goal display from midfielder Anthony Gordon helped Everton Under-18s come from behind to record a stunning 7-1 away victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Paul Tait's young Blues went behind early on, but responded as Fraser Hornby netted an equaliser on his first appearance after six months out with an injury.

An incredible second half followed, with the Toffees flying out of the blocks and taking the lead, courtesy of quick-fire goals from Alex Denny and Gordon.

Gordon's work was far from over, though, as he netted three more times - two of which came from the penalty spot - before the full-time whistle.

Manasse Mampala also opened his account for the season as Everton ran riot in the Midlands.

Everton U18s: Hilton, Moore, Ouzounidis, Duke-McKenna, Hornby (60' Simms), Denny, Collins, Kerr (70' Scully), Anderson (74' Mampala), Gordon, Richards.
Subs not Used: Astley, Johnson.
