U23s through to last eight of Premier League Cup

Everton U23s 2 - 1 Sunderland U23s
Anthony Gordon curled home a stunning free-kick just 3 minutes from time to earn the young Blues a 2-1 victory at Southport's Merseyrail Community Stadium on Friday night.

The opening goal came on 66 minutes when Bassala Sambou expertly slotted home a penalty kick after Gordon had been sent tumbling.

Sunderland's equaliser came out of the blue when Williams Kokolo headed into the top corner of the net from 10 yards on 81 minutes.

However, Everton were not to be denied as Gordon produced a moment of magic to earn a victory that was thoroughly deserved.

The result sent Everton Under-23s into the last eight of the Premier League Cup where they will have home advantage against Blackburn Rovers.

Everton U23s: Hewelt... Sambou, Gordon.

Another encouraging result for the youngsters, let's hope they continue on to win it. Anthony Gordon has been earning rave reviews since his conversion to a striking role, some even saying that a first team place (or bench) is not that far away.

Last game of the season perhaps.

Still can't find a teamsheet for this game...

Youthhawk usually come through... but this the only game out of 60 or 70 in the PL Cup that does not have full teamsheets listed – an ominous sign at this point.

I assume under FA rules, someone is tasked with filling out and submitting changes (Goals, Subs, Cards) as the games at any level transpire... does anyone know what happens to those final teamsheets? Do they go back to the FA? Can anyone view them? In person? Surely, in this day and age, they are scanned as pdfs...

Still trying to figure out the line-up. All I've got is this video of the goals:

All I know for sure are the gaolscorers: 10 Sambou and 9 Gordon. Oh, and Hewelt is in goal.

For the second goal, looks like Fraser Hornby is on wearing 12.

I think Ryan Astley is 2; And Josh Bowler at 11?
