Everton U18s 2 - 2 Manchester Utd U18s

The 2022-23 season ended with a late draw for Everton U18s in their final game of the U18 Premier League against Manchester Utd today at Finch Farm, with Cody Ebere getting a 96th-minute equaliser.

Everton U18s have had a mixed first season under Leighton Baines, typified by the 1-1 draw against today's opponents that was played just last Wednesday at Carrington, and are set to finish 4th, a place behind Man Utd. 

But they fell behind after just 7 minutes, with Butler going off after 13 minutes. And the Blues fell further behind with another goal for the visitors before the break. 

Cody Ebere scored soon after the restart and that's how it seemed the match was going to end until the very last minute of added time, when Ebere got his and Everton's second to tie the game and earn a point.

Losing 1-2 after 50 minutes, Everton took a long time to settle down then took over the game and unlucky to be behind 0-2 at half-time.

Ebere pulled one back early in the second half, let's see what these lads are made of now!!

Still 1-2 after seventy minutes.

Sherif hit the post, Jensen made a great double save to keep Everton in the game.

Does not surprise me. The club is rotten from top to the very bottom.

Coby Ebere's second-half double - including an injury-time leveller - saw Everton Under-18s hit back to earn a 2-2 draw against Manchester United in their season finale at Finch Farm.

Leighton Baines's side showed great resolve to respond from 2-0 down at half-time as Ebere levelled 3 minutes after the restart before the forward capped the comeback with a 94th-minute equaliser.

The result sealed a fine end to the campaign for the Under-18s as they finished 4th in Premier League (North).

Thanks, Dave, Barry, for the updates,

Sherif and Ebere have done very well this season, a great comeback to finish the campaign off. In particular, Sherif, who came close again today, he's got to be one of the brightest prospects around at his age. Their respective stats for this U18s season:

14 goals and 5 assists in 21 games for still 16-year-old Sherif
8 goals in 19 games for Ebere.

Think we will see more of them in the u21s on and off next season, exciting to see if they can push on.
