Everton U18s are back on top of the table following their 2-0 win over Derby County today.

Liam Walsh and Delial Brewster scored the goals for Paul Tait's side to secure the win while rivals and previous holders of the top spot, Manchester City, were held to a draw by Liverpool.

Delial Brewster again.... Keep hearing the name, maybe he's going to be our next big thing one day in the near future. Fingers crossed.

I wanted to mention this: the first time I saw Brewster (on TV) was when they toured South Africa few years ago and it was televised in SA. I think he was 15 or 16.

He was a huge stand-out in that side. Tall and strong and dominated the defences with a powerful strike. He had a real turn of pace when he put his head down. He reminded me of what a younger Lukaku would have been like. Very very similar in style and appearance.

It would be fantastic to see him kick on. I think he had close to a year out with injury as he disappeared off any team sheet but seems back with a vengeance!

Not saying a certainty at all but one to watch...

Great stuff but I would like to see this success translated into the U21 team and to successful loan moves which can then bridge the gap to the first team.

We've had strong academy results for a few years now and, while that's nice to see, the real aim is of course to produce individuals for the first time.

Browning is the only player who has come through the academy for a while (Galloway was bought). Perhaps you might include Garbutt. It would be good to see the likes of Henen, Kenny, Ledson etc make impacts on the first team soon.

Have you seen this lad on the highlights? He looks useful and a is a bit of a unit as well from what I can see. Let's hope we can push this lad through.

Someone a while ago flagged up the lad Brewster, and was raving about him but, as David (#2) mentioned, he's had a few injury problems,. He seems to be back injury-free and scoring regularly. Here's hoping.

Most of the youngsters are pretty talented in fairness, whether or not they break through will be decided by other factors. Brewster does look like a prospect but I can't remember seeing as natural a striker as Hallam Hope who is now plying his trade at Bury.

The weird and exciting thing about the youth team is never really knowing who will make it. Rooney might have been nailed on but Hibbert got his break and took it whereas his teammate Peter Clarke couldn't. The same kind of situation is occurring with Browning and Pennington, both I think have the potential to be regulars but whether or not they get the break is anyone's guess.

Cheers David. Wondered what happened with young Delial. Didn't know he was injured. I flagged him up ages ago. A big tough hardcase kid who said his main assets were pace and scoring goals. Hope he continues to progress.

Yes Sam, very few make the main squad and loan moves where they receive good coaching and do not sit on the bench are essential.

Easier said than done, according to Stubbsy and I guess Joe Royle and Unsy are on the phone every day. Ledson in particular, has been begging for a move all season. Ever since his mate Jones told him how great it was.

Pleased to see Mustafi, Wallace and Forshaw doing so well even though they're no longer with us. Not sure about the other lads but expect Long to eventually make the grade. He's under the right coach at Burnley.

Don't know if everyone's seen the goals from this game but they're now on YouTube:

Worth looking at for Walsh's spectacular strike and a good finish from Brewster.
