Everton Under-18s will aim to follow up their opening day 6-3 over Middlesbrough when they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

Kevin Sheedy’s side kicked off their defence of the Under-18s Premier League crown with that thumping win, as striker Delial Brewster grabbed a hat-trick.

And the young frontman is eager to stay on the goal trail when the Blues tackle Wolves.

He told “I took my chances well on Saturday but I had a few more chances that I could have scored. I could have had four or five goals but I’m happy with my hat-trick. Now we move on to the next one against Wolves.

“It’s a great way to start. It’s a bit early but we are second in the league and if we keep on doing what we are doing, we will be going forward and hopefully we can retain the title.”

Fellow striker Calum Dyson was dropped to the bench for the season opener but stepped off it to score the goal that put the Blues 4-2 up after Boro had raced into a 2-0 first half lead.

Brewster believes his strike partner will still have a point to prove.

He added: “Dys [Dyson] was disappointed because he wasn’t starting the game. But he came on in the second half with Liam Walsh and they changed the game for us.

“When they came on, that’s when the goals started flowing. Calum had a big part in the win.

“He still had a point to prove in training and the very next training session he was very good.

“He’s shown the manager that he’s ready to start the next game and the way he keeps on going, keeps on training hard, he will be starting.”
