Ellis Simms

Striker Ellis Simms signed for Everton aged 16 and and penned his first professional deal in summer 2019 following a staggering personal campaign.

The Oldham-born player struck a scarcely credible 32 goals in 21 Under-18 Premier League matches and was on target 46 times in all competitions in 2018-19.

 

Simms, who had time in the academies at Manchester City and Blackburn Rovers before joining Everton, was sporadically dipped into the Blues' Under-23 team during the season. He scored 10 minutes into his Under-23 debut after coming off the bench in a Premier League International Cup game at Brighton & Hove Albion in October 2018.
