Sheedy Chuffed For Everton Youth Team
Bookmark and Share

Everton Under-18's beat Arsenal 4-2 to get to the quarter Final of the FA Youth Cup.

Goals from Matthew Pennington, Chris Long, Conor Grant and Harry Charsley topped a fantastic performance and manager Kevin Sheedy was full of praise for the Everton kids.

Sheeds said: "It was a magnificent performance. The players are getting better and I told them before the game that they will continue to get better. The determination, the camaraderie and team spirit that we've got shows in abundance on the pitch.

"There's a good unity. It makes that league defeat to Fulham a bit more galling because we asked our players to play 36 hours after a massive effort against Port Vale in the last round and we lost our unbeaten run, which stretched back a long way.

"That still hurts me, but for the game tonight, Arsenal put their best team out and we've totally dominated the game. There were a lot of great characters out there. I'm absolutely delighted for them. They're buzzing!

"That was a very, very good Arsenal team - don't underestimate them. They've got some excellent players but our work ethic and desire to win was there and we thoroughly deserved to beat them.

"Our finishing was excellent. I said to the lads before the game that we had plenty of players who could score goals, whether it be from set-pieces or open play.

"We conceded a soft goal and there was a good finish for their second, but we've got goals in our own team. If we perform like that, they'll have no complaints from me. I'm chuffed for the lads."

Who is to say that Kevin Sheedy might take over the reins in the near future if Moyes decides to leave, ably helped by Duncan Ferguson as his assistant. Sheedy knows the passing game. Could be a good thing as he knows how the game should be played
