U18s smash TEN past Sunderland

Saturday, 14 September, 2019 13comments  |  Jump to last

Everton Under-18s were really in the mood at Finch Farm today, smashing 10 goals past Sunderland.

Everton scored inside 60 seconds and, after Sebastian Quirk's breakthrough goal, showed their opponents no mercy.

Tait's side was 5-0 up at half-time and — in front of Everton's former Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, watching at USM Finch Farm — had doubled their tally by the final whistle.

Tom Cannon promptly scored twice inside five minutes following the restart to add to his first-half double.

Lewis Warrington, Rhys Hughes from the spot and, in the final minute, Max Thompson completed the scoring. Quirk had earlier netted his second, while Tyler Onyango returned from England Under-17 duty with a ninth-minute strike.

Scorers: Quirk (1', 35'), Onyango (9'), Cannon (16', 22', 47', 50'), Warrington (78'), Hughes (pen:88'), M Thompson (90).

Everton U18s: McIntyre, Hosie (65' Higgins), Lowey, Welch, D Thompson [Y], Hughes (c), Quirk, Onyango, Cannon (76' M Thompson), Carroll, Dobbin (65' Warrington).
Subs not Used: Rose, Jon Anderson.

Everton U18s are leading Sunderland U18s 8-0 with the goals coming from Cannon (4) and Quirk (2). Warrington came on as a sub and scored; Omagyo got the other. Still 10 minutes left to get into double figures, or is that being greedy?

Are you there watching in person, Dave?

The academy sides do seem to be running up a lot of high-scoring games across all age groups this season.

Anything to read in the tea leaves of all that, Dave?

Well, greedy or not, they got that double-figure score with goals from Max Thomson and Hughes with a penalty. I spelt Onyango's name wrong above, sorry about that.

Oh, and to make the day better, for me anyway, Man City U18s beat Liverpool U18s 5-2.

Jay, no, not watching, getting the information from another Everton website.

The tea leaves are saying look out for Tom Cannon, I don't think he has signed a full contract with The Blues yet, but is very well regarded. They play Sunderland again in a couple of weeks in the cup, not sure if it's the FA Youth Cup.

Billy, I think some of the crowd were disappointed between the 50th. and 78th minute when we failed to score!!!

I hope they're all getting a bollocking for that slack spell, they could have let Sunderland right back in it!!

Well done by the way Dave for following the youth teams and updating us all with scores, players development etc, you should be on the payroll!

This is inspiration and hope for the Bournemouth game tomorrow. Something is clicking for the teams at Finch Farm.

Let's hope the same tempo rubs off tomorrow on the south coast.

The good thing this team is that there were 7 players 16 or under there, quite unusual so early in the season. 6 goals in four games for Tom Cannon so far, and overshadowing the highly rated Lewis Dobbin. And Cannon is a year younger than Simms was when he was scoring for fun so looks good. Onyango scoring regularly too from midfield, another to watch.

The U18's have won again today at Man.Unt. 3-2 with two goals from Tom Cannon and a header from Welch the very young full back.

Cannon has scored eight in his last three games, Man City, the leaders got beat by Wolves2-1 so Everton are three points behind them with a game in hand.

Quirk gave Tom Cannon a good assist for one of his goals.
