Liverpool U18s 2 - 1 Everton U18s

Everton U18s made the short trip to Kirkby where they scored first but lost at the death to local rivals Liverpool in the U18 Premier League today.

Still without a win or a point in a very poor start to the season, Leighton Baines will be hoping to inspire his rock-bottom charges to an unlikely victory against their high-riding hosts who are second only to Manchester Utd in the league table.

The Blues got off to a great start with Martin Sherif scoring after just 6 minutes. But the Reds responded immediately with a goal of their own. And that's the way it stayed through half-time. 

That's how it stayed right through till the 96th minute, despite Sherif hitting the post from 1 yard out and George Pickford making a number of impressive saves. But he was finally beaten with virtually the last kick of the game.

Apparently, the game is being shown on LFCTV, for those who may secretly have access to such a thing.

But it does make you wonder what the rules are and whether Everton have considered providing this as a service to their paid-up members? But then that would cost money to put on and, given the very limited level of interest... nah, it's not going to happen.

That's five on the trot.

Everton Youngsters rock-bottom of the U18 Premier League.

I can't imagine it could be down to Leighton Baines, the coach. He's only been in the job for a couple of years, surely he has got all his badges and knows exactly what he's doing?

I mean, he's a former Everton Legend, probably hand selected for the post by Bill Kenwright, the world's greatest Evertonian.

Errr… hang on a minute. I'm seeing a bit of a pattern here. What's that phrase? Oh yea...

Jobs for the Boyz.
