Everton U23's play Spurs U23's tonight at Southport and again the game will not be shown to Everton website, are the club interested in the supporters who follow all Everton teams. EITC gets great backing from the club, are we supportersnot part of EITC ?

Two down half time. Charsley looking miserable and playing so.

Brent ( 17), I think Gordon and Gibson have been on international duty, not sure about Feeney, possibly Banginime on thebench tomorrow if he's not injured.

Gordon played on Tuesday night. He could have played. Probably kept ready for the first team. Dunno about Gibson. What about Denis Adeniran?

Brent (25),I'm presuming you are at the game, what sort of attendance do you get at Southport for these games, two or three hundred?

Normally about that number Dave but far fewer tonight. Adeniran is playing Steve. Pretty sound as ever.

Nice one Brent.

Anthony Gordon played Weds, Saturday and Tuesday. That's 3 full games in 6 days (all for England u19 and scored 2). I suspect he's rested in case he's needed.

I can't be sure about Gibson. Feeney did not play for England u20. Maybe they are both on standby incase of injury to big Yerry Mina?

And a cracking consolation goal by Adeniran from outside box. And almost second from Markelo.

Thanks for the updates Brent. No doubt you'll be interested to know that Everton's social media showed Richarlison kicking a can about in training, the interest being that Gibson was stood laughing at him and so is clearly with the first team for this one. Probably won't play but might be on the bench. Also Bernard was chatting to silva as the rest all stood around, so he might be fit?

Brent (or anyone else) are you able to give a brief summary of the formation and how the individuals played in their positions?
Brent Stephens
22 Posted 23/11/2019 at 13:16:46
Tyrer in goal.
Back four: Denny, Astley, Foulds, John (until John off injured - then Foulds to LB and Ouzounidis came on at CB).
Mids: Adeniran, Onyango, Markelo.
Forward: Charsley, Simms, Evans.
But Evans and Charsley often withdrawing to midfield.

Niasse went close there. He was taking them all on, on his own!
