Everton reserve goalkeeper, Harry Tyrer, has committed to a further year with the Club after putting pen to paper on a new contract today.

The 22-year-old, who has just helped Chesterfield back into the EFL as winners of the National League during his season-long loan with the Spireites, says he has grown a lot as a player over the past couple of seasons and now has his sights set on eventually representing his beloved Blues at senior level.

“It’s a boyhood dream of mine to be at this club and it’s probably every Evertonians’ dream to be at this club,” he told evertonfc.com after signing the deal that keeps him at Goodison Park until June 2026. “I’ve worked hard this season and that’s come with a lot of rewards.

"Last season, it was Chester. This season, it was Chesterfield. I’ve grown up a lot in the lower leagues and I’ve definitely come on leaps and bounds as a goalkeeper.

“I’ve enjoyed it a lot. I’ve grown up as a young player. It’s been a positive learning curve and it’s been great winning the league and enjoying that.

“[My future target is definitely] to play for the senior team. I think that’s everyone’s dream. 

“I’d like to play as many games as possible and hopefully, one day, be walking out to either Goodison Park or Bramley-Moore Dock.”

I wonder if he will return to Chesterfield now they have been promoted to League Two or if he will be aiming for a loan to a League One club.

The lad has done little wrong at all with his two loan spells, and both clubs were singing his praises when he left. Needs one more year loan at the highest level club who will make him first choice starter. If he can excel in the Championship then it will give him a shot at being our future no1. He’s at an age now where he has to prove that he can make the next big step up. It will be interesting to see where he goes. Best of luck to him.

Yes, Iain, hopefully he can get a game at Championship level - or somewhere like the Scottish Premier League or Belgium. It's time to prove himself at a higher level.

The Championship is filled with career minor-league keepers or those few who got a cup of coffee in the Premier League.

Ipswich Town is in 1st place in the Championship with 3 games to go, with a 33-year old keeper spent the bulk of his career in the Czech Republic league.

Harry needs to fight his way into one of those clubs, not further down.

I would imagine that Championship might be too big a step up for now but even a season as first choice in League One would be a good stepping stone for him at only 22.

Hopefully he has what it takes to go all the way.

Having a second reserve keeper in the senior squad – Lonergan – is a waste of money.

Say next season Pickford is injured and replaced by Virginia, surely the current academy keeper could sit on bench. Then if Virginia was also injured could Tyrer be temporarily recalled from wherever he is on loan?

Best chance of a game in the Championship is to stay at Goodison next season.

Ian. Aren’t you being a bit harsh on Lonergan. He’s only 40 (41 in October).

I think he should stay at Chesterfield (a club I always look out for). Living in Sheffield, I've been to a couple of games and he really didn't have much to do.

I'd love to see a lot of our young players going to upward minded clubs like Chesterfield and my other second team, Wrexham!

Surely things can't be all that bad behind the scenes then. Would he just sign regardless of what was happening (allegedly) in the interests of career progression?

Maybe things aren't as bad as we are led to believe, but again they are cutting it mighty fine!

Many years ago the first Everton match I went to was a pre season friendly against Cheltenham at Whaddon road. To make it a more even game they swapped keepers so Big Nev was in goal for the Robins and the Toffees had their keeper. Nev was awesome as he generally was and Cheltenham won 1-0. I was 15 and played in goal and after the match purely by chance got to meet my hero Neville Southall. 30th April 1990. Jumpers for goal posts etc 😂 also remember Norman Whiteside playing. Not really relevant to the thread but made me smile for a few moments before snapping back to reality. I hope this young keeper makes the right career choices and he's the next Southall.

Keep it going Harry. The Skys your Limit. Well done on winning silverware this season. A good habit to get into.
