U23s draw down Hotspur Way

Friday, 7 December, 2018 8comments  |  Jump to last

Anthony Gordon grabbed a late equaliser in Everton Under-23s 2-2 draw at Tottenham Hotspur today. The game was played at Spurs' training ground on Hotspur Way in Bulls Cross, Enfield.

David Unsworth's young team trailed 2-0 before Bassala Sambou reduced the arrears three minutes before half-time.

Then, four minutes from the end of the Premier League 2 clash, 17-year-old substitute Gordon converted a low cross from fellow substitute Manasse Mampala to snatch a point and claim his first goal for the Blues' Under-23 team.

Everton have slipped off the top of the PL2 table after losing the mini-derby to Liverpool last month, and the loss of two more points means they are in danger of slipping further behind Derby County, the new leaders.

Everton U23s: Hewelt, Ouzounidis, Charsley, Feeney, Browning, Broadhead (61' Simms), Evans (74' Gordon), Adeniran, Bowler, Iversen, Sambou (61' Mampala).
Subs not Used: Hilton, Astley.

Close call!

2-0 down after 36 minutes. Sambou pulled one back on the stroke of half-time and Anthony Gordon snatched an equaliser in the 86th minute.

By my reckoning that keeps us in second place, one point behind leaders Derby, having played a game more.

Thanks, Jay. I finally saw the Echo report; nothing on the OS, as per usual.

Derby also play(ed) today: Man City (H)... sources say kick-off was 11 am, but I can't find the score anywhere. I think it might be tonight.

Man City winners 1-0. We picked up a point.

I don't track the U-teams daily. Turns out, Man City won the Check-a-Trade Trophy.

Yea, Jimmy, that puts us just 1 point behind Derby at the top... Pity we didn't win today, but there ya go. We are 1 point closer.

Although I'm puzzled by your last assertion: Lincoln City are the current holders of the Checkatarde (formerly EFL) Trophy. I don't think Man City have ever won it. Where are you getting that from?

Browning needs to get out of the club and get a career for himself. Pennington has been quoted as saying he knows there is nothing down for him and is looking to get out.

These are men approaching their mid-20s who should have 100 plus league appearances under their belts at some level but kick around a Premier League club junior teams probably because of the money. I don't know who advises them. Modern football is shit.

I saw Iverson in the Youth Cup v Sunderland and he was excellent. Still, I was surprised he got the call to U23s so quickly when he only recently seemed to be an U18 regular starter.
