Dyson goal earns U21s another friendly win

, 15 July, 4comments  |  Jump to most recent
Everton Under-21s won their third pre-season friendly on the bounce as goals by Antony Evans and Calum Dyson saw David Unsworth's side come from behind to beat Bohemians 2-1 in Dublin.

The Blues, with Sam Byrne and David Henen leading the line, were trailing to Kieran Dillon's first-half opener when 16-year-old Evans fired in off the bar to level the game.

Dyson won it with a header from Michael Donohue's cross with eight minutes to go.

Everton: Hewelt, Jones, Thorniley, Bainbridge, Connolly (Yates 46'), Junior (Walsh 59'), Davies (Charsley 73'), Dowell (Donohue 56'), Evans (Brewster 66'), Henen (Dyson 73'), Byrne (Hurst 66').

I was at the game. Some ropey defending for long balls. Junior excellent in the middle but what is the point of him playing in the side and still on our books? He's a bit old to be making the breakthrough now and not even gone to Singapore with the First Team Squad.

Henen was very ordinary and frightened of a tackle. Having said all that, some of the lads were very comfortable with the ball at their feet. Took too much out of it at times and needed to look up but they're only young.

Walsh, who came on for Junior, looks like he has great promise and most of the attackers looked to have pace and physicality. The biggest plus is that they seemed to be coached in keeping the ball on the deck and to stick to a footballing philosophy.

Overall, it was encouraging. Maybe two or three will make it at Everton. That's a realistic expectation.

Sounds good Neil. How did Byrne, Dyson and Hurst play? We got Sam Byrne from Man U, and he’s one of their better young kids, so hopefully he’ll make it at Everton. Show Lukaku how to finish!
