Walsh continues to light up League Two

, 24 February, 4comments  |  Jump to most recent
Everton U21s midfielder Liam Walsh is enjoying life on loan at Yeovil Town in England's fourth tier with another man-of-the-match display this week for the Glovers.

Walsh has been with the League Two outfit for the past couple of months and has become a firm favourite with Yeovil fans as his performances have bolstered their bid to avoid relegation to the Conference this season.

The 18-year-old was named the Glovers' best player in their 0-0 draw with promotion-chasing Plymouth Argyle, a result that keeps the West Country club out of the relegation zone on goal difference.

Since his arrival from Finch Farm, Yeovil have lost only two of their seven League games and he will remain with them until at least 8th March when there will surely be another effort to keep him at Huish Park for longer.

His club-mate Jonjoe Kenny, meanwhile, has had his loan at Oxford United extended by another month, taking him to the end of March.

Then both players should now see out the season with their clubs and see how much they learn out in the real world, before hopefully putting in a few cameos in pre season.

Yes, two of my favourite youngsters. The mercurial Walsh who can play quick 1-2s with a cheeky smile on his face. I hope he grows another inch or two. A real natural.

If you dropped a ball into a ring of players, Jonjoe would be the first one on to it. More a Hibbo than a Seamus, a real leader and the best England U19s right back.

Great to hear they are doing well but it's no surprise. They have what it takes to succeed.

Unsy always worried about the mental maturity of his youngsters. If they failed to grow up he couldn't risk sending them out on loan. Many are on big wages and could get into all sorts of trouble. Some will only manage a move near to home. It's a real tricky business, which is why wise old Joe Royle was brought in to keep a close eye on things.

I think Liam Walsh as also voted Player of the Month for the whole of League Two.

Keep it up, Liam lad... the baby-faced assassin.

3rd MotM performance since he’s been there apparently.

He speaks well too. As did Ross in his last pitch-side interview.
