Everton FC dispose of Saints to go marching into the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup
Goals by George Waring and Conor Grant fired Kevin Sheedy’s Everton youth team into the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup.
The young Blues struck either side of half-time to secure a deserved and impressive win at Southampton. But goalkeeper Mateusz Taudul had to make two important stops before limping off with an ankle injury 13 minutes from time. Waring struck confidently for the Blues after 11 minutes at St Mary’s, firing home after being played in. But then Taudul saved brilliantly from Chambers before beating away Seagers’ effort minutes later. An excellent night for the stopper was spoiled only when he landed awkwardly after 77 minutes and had to limp off. But by then Conor Grant had struck with a real poacher’s finish from three yards on the hour, to give the Blues the comfort of a two-goal lead – and despite late Saints pressure it was a lead they never looked like giving up. EVERTON: Taudul (Griffiths 77), Pennington, Touray, Kenny, Langton, Moleneux (c), Jones, Ledson, Waring (Dyson 85), Grant, Kennedy. Subs: Charisley, Green, McLaughlin.
