Fulham Yth v Everton Yth
A dramatic late turnaround saw Everton defeat Fulham 2-1 to claim the tag of best youth team in the country.
After being the better side for three quarters of the game the Toffees fell behind to a Ronny Minkwitz strike with 15 minutes left.
But the Blues continued to attack with vigour and Adam Thomas levelled after a free kick wasn't cleared properly.
Not content to play for extra time, the visitors continued to probe and giant substitute George Waring nodded in the winner with four minutes left.
Everton began well with Tom Donegan and Gerard Kinsella going close from the edge of the box and Conor McAleny testing home keeper Jesse Joronen.
Kerim Frei replied with a fizzing effort just over for Fulham but it was the Toffees who went close again, with headers first from Thomas and then from Kinsella.
The Blues continued in the same vein after half time with Anton Forrester and McAleny both sending efforts just wide.
So it was against the run of play when Minkwitz rifled in the opening goal in the 74th minute.
Everton immediately sent on towering forward Waring and duly equalised in the 81st minute when Thomas capitalised on a half clearance to slot home.
And there was even better to come when Thomas centred and Waring planted a header back across the keeper and into the net.
Wild celebrations followed that goal but they were nothing to compare to the scenes that followed after the Blues had survived Fulham's last ditch efforts at the death.
Everton are now officially the best youth team in the nation.
