Everton U18s 3-1 Middlesbrough U18s

Everton Under-18s ran out 3-1 winners at home to Middlesbrough on Saturday afternoon.

Despite going a goal behind after just five minutes, the Blues recovered well amid strong winds.

Gethin Jones' spot-kick, Calum Dyson's close-range finish and Courtney Duffus' header all turned the game around before the break and Kevin Sheedy's side clinched a vital three points to keep their title charge alive.

After that early setback, Duffus was pulled to ground inside the box and captain Jones stepped up to convert from 12 yards and restore parity on 15 minutes.

Arlen Birch then found Harry Charsley in the box but the Republic of Ireland Under-17 international could not add a second.

Forward Dyson did just that, however, when he met a dangerous cross on 25 minutes.

And Everton would secure their lead with a two-goal cushion through Duffus' close-range header following Charsley's corner.

Middlesbrough hit the bar in the second half, but by then the Blues had done enough to earn three points.

Sheedy told "We are very pleased. It was a difficult game and we were kicking into a strong wind in the first half.

"That first goal stunned us, but the lads recovered well and stayed focused. They played it out from the back and created some fantastic opportunities.

"We were comfortable winners in the end and I thought the team were excellent."

The Under-18s currently sit level on points with league-leaders Manchester City, although the Citizens have a game in hand.
