 MATCH DETAILS 
 EVERTON 4 - 1 SUNDERLAND
FA Youth Cup 3rd Round
Saturday 1 December 2018
Goodison Park, Merseyside

Everton Under-18s booked safe passage into the 4th round of the FA Youth Cup after a 4-1 win over Sunderland at Goodison Park

 Sunderland were given an early warning about in-form Everton striker Ellis Simms – who netted twice in the young Blues’ 4-0 win over the Black Cats last weekend - inside the first 10 minutes. Found on the edge of the box by Bobby Carroll, the powerful frontman drove forward but saw an effort deflected wide. They did not heed that warning, however. Pawel Zuk picked out Mackenzie Hunt and when he laid it off for Simms, the frontman powered the ball into the roof of the net.

The chances continued to fall Everton’s way, Korede Adedoyin and skipper Einar Iversen both saw half chances fly off target. The Toffees’ pressure told just before the break. A corner picked out Adedoyin and he did the rest, steering a header into the back of the net.

A fine move developed seconds after the restart. Anthony Gordon tricked his way into space and played the ball inside for Simms, his flick was perfect for Adedoyin but the winger’s effort flew high and wide. Sunderland had clearly been read the riot act at the interval, and Gooch capitalised on lackadaisical Everton defending to fire past Harry Tryer.

 The goal of the match sealed it when Gordon was picked out wide on the left by Simms, Gordon bent a stunning strike that dipped into the far corner of the Sunderland net. Suddenly the nervousness that had creept into Everton’s game was gone.

Iversen almost added a brilliant fourth of his own, lashing a half-volley that clipped the bar on its way over. Simms, though, did wrap up the victory with a late fourth, breaking free to fire low into the net to secure Everton’s place in the next round.

Everton U18s: Tyrer, Zuk, Warren, Astley, Joe Anderson, Iversen, Adedoyin (77' Hughes), Carroll (90' Quirk), Simms, Hunt, Gordon (85' Dobbin).
Subs not Used: Hansen, Warnock.

  

 STOKE CITY 2 - 2 EVERTON [1 - 3 on Penalties]
FA Youth Cup 4th Round
Thursday 10 January 2019
Bet365 Stadium, Stoke

The Young Blues prevailed in an exciting encounter at Stoke City after the game ended 2-2 after extra-time.

Goal machine, Ellis Simms, led the line for Everton and he fired home the opener from Anthony Gordon's cross inside three minutes.

Mackenzie Hunt then doubled the lead for the visitors with a cracking effort from the edge of the box that went in off the underside of the crossbar.

However, as Stoke pushed in the second half, Ethon Varian halved their deficit with 19 minutes of the regulation 90 to go and he levelled matters at the death to force extra time, with Everton picking up an incredible eight yellow cards!

Three fantastic saved penalties by Harry Tyrer in the shootout ensured that Everton progressed to the 5th Round, with Hughes, Hunt and Astley converting their spot-kicks.

Everton U18s: Tyrer, Zuk [Y:60'], Warren, Joe Anderson [Y:103'], Astley, Iversen [Y:58'] (104' Quirk [Y:107']), Adedoyin (81' McKeown), Carroll (45' Hughes [Y:75']), Simms [Y:90'], Hunt [Y:88'], Gordon [Y:45'] (100' Dobbin).
Subs not Used: Barrett.

 
 EVERTON 2 - 0 BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION
FA Youth Cup 5th Round
Tuesday 12 February 2019
Goodison Park, Merseyside

Based on the latest showings at Under-18 level, it looked like a strong line-up announced by Paul Tait. And they quickly surged into an impressive 2-goal lead after just 12 minutes with excellent goals for Michael Collins and Ellis Simms.

More chances were created and could have been taken but the boys on blue looked to relax a little, letting Brighton come into it more but without threatening Harry Tryer in the Everton goal.

The Blues defended well without really stepping it up in the second half, and will now face West Brom in the 6th Round.

Everton U-18s: Tryer, Richards, Collins (90' Warren), Joe Anderson, Astley, Iversen, Adedoyin (70' Quirk), Carroll, Simms, Hunt, Gordon [Y:40'] (50' Hughes). Subs: Barrett, Dobbin.
