Walsh goes out on loan

06/01/2016  7 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton U21 midfielder Liam Walsh has joined Yeovil Town on a temporary basis.

The 18-year-old, who signed his first professional contract with the Blues last March, is very highly regarded at the Academy at Finch Farm and has joined the League Two side to gain valuable experience.

Going to a league two side can usually toughen up most lads, Liam is tough enough, he needs to be playing in a better league than this, but at least he may get regular games, he will not come on playing in the non contact world of the U21's.Good luck lad, hope you do well.

Not very big but hopefully still growing, this lad has tremendous talent. Playing football is very easy to him and he can smile as he plays one-twos inside the box. Hope he enjoys his loan spell and comes back I one piece.

I'm really pleased this loan has happened although I fear for the safety of any opposition players who take him for a soft touch. He reminds me of Alan Ball when he first arrived from Blackpool for many reasons not least of which is his response when provoked, even slightly!

Not sure I entirely agree with you, Dave (#1, as I find the U21 league very committed and physical but getting hit by a Neanderthal centre half keen to preserve his win bonus would be something else. Winning and losing in a professional league certainly shows the mettle of players; I think Conor Grant's game has come on a lot since his loan last season.

John, I know you watch the U21's so must agree it is completely ruined by the whistle going for the slightest touch on a player, very frustrating to watch never mind play.

I know Barkley was disappointed when he went on loan to Sheffield Wednesday, he had his head down at Finch Farm when he heard he was going, one of the scouts told him at least you will be playing real football.

I'd back him to thrive in that league as Ledson is currently doing for Cambridge.

Walsh and Ledson would be two of my picks to have a decent pro career as their attitude is second to none. Good luck to the lad.

High hopes for both this kid and Ledson - so fingers crossed they come back better players.
