Everton have been drawn at home to play either Sunderland or Oldham Athletic in the Third Round of the FA Youth Cup.
The game is provisionally scheduled to take place at Goodison Park on Saturday, 15 December 2018, kick-off set for 19:00 — although this is yet to be confirmed by the Club.
It's now 20 years since Everton last won the FA Youth Cup, despite their reputation as one of the leading Development Academies in English professional football.
The U18 side who will contest the fixture are currently without question the best team in the land at that level, despite registering their first defeat of the season last week to local rivals Liverpool.
But they reacted brilliantly to that minor setback at the weekend by hammering TEN goals past West Brom at Finch Farm in their second Group D match of the U18 Premier League Cup.
No more games just now until after the International Break, when they travel to Sunderland on 24 November.

And we've all too often fallen at the first or second hurdle in recent years, I'm thinking of the time we brought back Davies, Walsh, Connolly, Dowell and lost.
This time though we've had a largely settled team with only a few playing up so they should be easily reintegrated. As ever with any Everton team, I have high hopes. :-)

Well worth a watch, if I can get the game, I will be going as a very interested spectator.

Kyle John is listed in the U18 squad. I don't have his date of birth but, looking at his photo on official site, he won't be getting served in a pub anytime soon.

Mind you, the bigger the crowds for youngsters can put a lot of pressure on them; they tend to play better away in these games, because there is less pressure.
Thanks again, Frank.
