With Shrewsbury being not that far from Merseyside, quite a few Evertonians bolstered the crowd and saw Everton cruise to a 3-0 win fielding three lads on trail.  I don't think they had much to worry about: the first of the goals from Radzinski came after Pembridge and Hibbert linked together well to provide the final ball in from the right; Radzinski scored with a header from the edge of the 6-yd area.

The boy from Brazil looked good; some nice touches, including a wonderful 20-yard cross field pass with the outside of his boot.

Half time: Shrewsbury Town 0 - 1 Everton

As normal in pre-season games, a large number of subs were made, but the one the Everton fans had come to see took until the 68th minute when Rooney made his way on to the field.  By this time, we where 3-0 up.  

Two goals from Campbell: his first on 51 mins off Pembridge's ball from midfield, Campbell saw the advancing Dunbavin come off his line, so all he had to do was lob the ball over the keeper to make it 2-0.

Just after the hour mark, Pembridge was again the playmaker in midfield, finding Campbell with a great ball.  SuperKev's first touch took the ball around the defence to score a nice goal past the keeper.

Rooney had a 20 min run out and made himself two or three chances, much to the delight of the blue half of the crowd.

Everton are still no nearer to resolving the goalkeeper situation, Gerrard had the nod today, and it will be interesting who starts the next game up north...
