Tom Molyneux joined Everton when he was 13-years-old.
The Ormskirk-born central midfielder featured regularly for the Blues' Under-16s during the 2010/11 season, and also made a handful of appearances for Everton's Under-18s towards the end of the term.
He made his debut at that level in April 2011, coming on as a half-time substitute against Sheffield United in the Premier Academy League, and made his first start against Sunderland a week later.
The youngster also featured in the Blues' Premier Academy League play-off semi-final against Aston Villa, and was an unused substitute in the final against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
He cites his passing ability and physical strength as his main attributes.
In 2010, Tom was a part of the Everton Academy team that travelled to Brazil for the prestigious Futures tournament and two years later was on the road again for the Dallas Cup in the USA.
