Academy Under 18’s: Everton vs Wolves

The Wolves Academy Under 18’s team today lost away to the top youth team Everton with 3-0.

But it was a hard victory to get for the Liverpool side as the first goal did not come until the second half of the match. It was Nathan Craig whose reportedly incredibly accurate set-piece went past the Wolves keeper into the bottom corner.

That was just in the beginning of the second half and after about an hour of the game Hallam Hope scored their second from inside the penalty area. The third came as hope set up Conor McAleny to tap it in from the far post with just eight minutes remaining of the match. Sour grapes!

Coach Neil Dewsnip to the Everton Official site:

It was an excellent performance, and probably the best we’ve played all season. I’m very, very pleased. We really controlled the game all the way through the first half. Our passing was excellent – it was something that we’ve talked about and worked on this week. As it was still 0-0 at half-time we looked to be more dynamic and a bit more agressive in front of goal, and we certainly did that.

Typical that they should do their best match for the season against our lads. But we have a very good under 18’s team. I don’t doubt that. I’ve been told that the Everton team is the best in the country, so this was probably one of the more expected losses of the season.

We await the report from the Wolves Official site as usual. It will probably take a couple of days or a week. As a supporter I am not pleased with that. Are you?


P.S. According to sources of paddytheflea Zele Ismail- the talented 16-year-old who uses to play in the under-18’s team – has been injured for some time, but he is on his way back now and hopefully he will be back in full training in the middle of March.D.S.
Coach Kevin Thelwell- Is he thinking about writing a report about the game?

  1. So right about delays getting and finding reports on “junior” games and especially Zele’s progress.
