Everton U18s 4-0 Rochdale U18s

Goals from Ben Heneghan, Anton Forrester, Chris Long and Ibou Touray saw Everton U18s cruise to victory over Rochdale in a behind closed doors friendly at Finch Farm.

The Everton side contained many players that played in the wins over NY Red Bulls and Philadelphia Union on the recent tour of the US of A. The full starting line-up was; Fitzgibbon, Higgins, Johns, Heneghan, Nsiala, Barrow, Molyneux, Garbutt, Long, Forrester, Hope.

Everton took the lead when Luke Garbutt's corner was headed down by Anton Forrester into the path of Ben Heneghan who pounced to put the Blues in front.

Striker Chris Long was replaced by Femi Orenuga on the referee's order after some dangerous challenges, but did come back on later in the game. Everton led 1-0 at the break but added a further three goals in the second half through Forrester, Long and Touray.
