Sunderland U18s come back to take all the points

Everton U18s 2 - 3 Sunderland U18

Everton U18s were 2-0 up against Sunderland but gave up 3 goals and 3 points in a disastrous second half for coach Leighton Baines.

Kick-off was a 12:30 BST and Leighton Baines was looking to chalk up his first win after his Academy charges suffered a narrow opening-day defeat at Nottingham Forest last weekend. 

Baines must have liked what he saw: he went with the exact same starting line-up and subs bench. And they returned exactly the same scoreline!

Everton took the lead after 27 minutes when Francis Okoronkwo converted following a corner. Matthew Apter made it 2-0 just before the break.

But then it all went pear-shaped in the second half as the visitors knocked in three goals to take the victory.

Everton U18s: Graham, Dixon, Tierney, Ishe Samuels-Smith, Wright, Patterson, Apter (79' Bates), Djankpata, Ebere, Barker (75' Beaumont-Clark), Okoronkwo (71' Sheriff).
Subs not Used: Jensen, Odin Samuels-Smith.

Jack Patterson, the young Irish lad, is down to play along with Okoronkwo who had a good game last night for the U21s. Patterson is only 16, just left school and was sought by a few clubs before he chose the Blues.
