Under-18s Kickstart Campaign With Big Win

Everton Under-18s picked up their first three points of the season after defeating Sunderland Under-18s 3-0 at Finch Farm. 

Leighton Baines' side had made a slow start to the new campaign and failed to pick up any points from their opening six league matches. 

They bounced back emphatically on Saturday morning, though. Harrison Armstrong put the Blues ahead inside three minutes before a brace from George Morgan on either side of half-time sealed the victory. 

Up next, the young Blues welcome Manchester City to Finch Farm (Saturday, 11.30am kick-off) looking to repeat last season's home victory against the Premier League Under-18s champions.
