John O'Toole was a regular in the U-18 'B'-Team during the 1996-97 season,
and spent the next season looking to move up to the Reserves unless
the senior keepers (Neville Southall and
Paul Gerrard) need match practice.
But being third in line to the Southall jersey meant he was unlikely to see
first-team action for Everton. The arrival of
Thomas Myhre in November 1997 was a further
nail on John O'Toole's first-team coffin. When he was released at the end
of the 1997-98 season, he had not played a senior match for Everton, although
was named as substitute goalie for 4 senior matches.
