Saturday, 20 October, 2018 13comments  |  Jump to last
Everton U18s put seven goals past Newcastle United at Finch Farm this afternoon.

Paul Tait's youngsters are in a vibrant vein of form, extending their unbeaten record as they ride high atop the U18 Premier League (North).

Korede Adedoyin opened the scoring after just 3 mins.

Ellis Simms made it two around the half-hour before Cole responded straight away for the Magpies.

It was 3-1 to Everton after 35 minutes, Simms with his second.

And the Blues open the floodgates in the second half with two more each for Simms and Adedoyin in a fine 7-1 win.

Everton U18s: Tyrer, Zuk, Warren, Joe Anderson, Astley, Iversen, Adedoyin, Carroll, Simms (76' Thompson), Phillips (77' Dobbin), Hunt (67' Hughes).
Subs not Used: McIntyre, Quirk.

3-1 at half time. Of course these lads are getting no proper experience because the first team only play on Sunday.

That's twice Simms has scored four goals in a game this season and a hat-trick for Adedoyin. These lads might have a good run in the FA Youth Cup this season.

Youth teams going great guns this year. Is that the unfamiliar sounds of optimism I hear?

Newcastle seem to be a club in complete meltdown. Feel sorry for the fans.

Saying that, Ajay, the Newcastle U-18s are showing signs of improvement. In last season's fixture, back in March, they went down to seven goals without reply:

A couple of names I've not seen before:

Jack McIntyre — sub goalkeeper
Max Thompson — finally gets a game after weeks on the subs bench
Lewis Dobbin — a 16-year-old coming off the bench.

Michael, the two new names, Jack McIntyre and Lewis Dobbin are Schoolboys, ie, not on Scholarships with us yet.

Dobbin has been with the England youth teams for the past couple of years, currently with the U16s squad. He has a reputation as a powerful forward who scores goals, maybe closer to Simms than Gordon if that makes sense.

Love seeing these new names getting a mention, there are two more names with England U16s – maybe they'll get a chance late season.

Simms seems to bang them in.

I wouldn't read too much into this one, we had the Mayor playing for us, so it can't have been too high a standard.

(sorry couldn't resist)

Is that 16 in 10 games now for Simms?

Can anyone who watches the youth games say more about his style of play? Thought he was originally a winger when he arrived from Man City, so have been surprised to see him apparently turn into such a goal machine.

Ajay... that is a bunch of supporters who I would never feel sorry for. Delusional to a man!

Alex 10;

If you're right and Simms has 16 in 10, it should be time for him to move up and have him tested at U23 level!
