Young Everton defender Laurence Wilson finally made his
professional debut at the weekend.
Wilson, whose loan move to Mansfield Town eventually went
through last week after previous paperwork problems, came on as a
second half substitute for The Stags at Wycombe Wanderers.
The game ended in a 2-2 draw, which was a terrific result for
struggling Mansfield at high-flying Wycombe.
Wilson, who has been a regular fixture in the Everton reserve
side for two seasons, started on the bench at Causeway Lane but was
introduced as a 63rd minute replacement for Adam Rundle as
Mansfield looked to protect a shock lead.
Sadly for the 19-year old full-back, who has signed an initial
one-month deal, the promotion chasing home side equalised before
the end but Wilson will be hopeful of more senior action on Tuesday
when Mansfield play host to Grimsby Town.
