Young Blues knock the Toffees out of the FA Youth Cup

Ross Marshall and Idris El Mizouni were on target as Town's U18s knocked Everton out of the FA Youth Cup with a 2-1 victory at Goodison Park.

After a fairly uneventful first 45 minutes, Marshall headed Town into the lead just minutes after the restart as he met a deep cross at the back post to score.

Frenchman, Lounes Foudil was unfortunate not to double the Blues' lead, but Toffees 'keeper Nicolas Hansen saved well. 

Foudil's countryman, El Mizouni did make it 2-0 minutes later, though with a fantastic low drive from outside the box.

Korede Adedoyin did reduce the arrears for the hosts as he turned in Manasse Mampala's cross, and Mampala himself came close to a leveller soon after, but couldn't convert from close range.

Town 'keeper, Mitchell Ware had to be alert to prevent Alex Denny from making it 2-2 late in the game as the Blues held on for an impressive victory.

Alan Lee's 18s will now face either Oxford United or Dagenham and Redbridge at home in the fourth-round of the FA Youth Cup on the 20th of January.
