Man Utd U18s 4 - 2 Everton U18s
Everton Under-18s were at Carrington losing to Manchester Utd in a prequel to their upcoming 5th Round FA Youth Cup tie scheduled for Old Trafford next month.
Everton gave up two goals in the first 20 minutes but hit back before the break when Emilio Lawrence scored — a Martin Sherif through ball found Lawrence, who showed fabulous composure to calmly slot the ball low into the corner from just inside the box.
And in the second half, that man Francis Okoronkwo stepped up again to level the match. Nash brilliantly found Okoronkwo with a kick from his hands and the attacker carried the ball from just inside the United half before exquisitely curling the ball into the far corner to restore parity on 50 minutes.

It's hard to have faith when the club is in a mess, but Lawrence, Sherif and Samuels-Smith have been given a lot of game time at U18; it would be a shame to lose any of them but as I said let's wait and see.

A brilliant goal from Okoronkwo though. He was touted as a winger when he first joined us and you can see why, allied with the scoring ability he has he's proving a great purchase.

The club very interested in Lawrence isn't Liverpool.

I wonder if Thierry Small has any regrets given the fate of Lucas Digne?!
Great that Okoronkwo continues to shine, though for the first time in years wingers are the one thing we have excess of.
If only there was a Declan Rice type breaking through; nice to see Onyango get minutes yesterday but I still have doubts as to his ability to reach the top levels.

Lawrence is different, I'm not sure he'll get much better wages as a 16-year-old Scholar elsewhere, but he may prefer the promises made by another club.
On the other hand, he could sign with us and still leave this time next year on a pro contract with another club as he'll be 17 then.
