v Everton u21

Recommended Posts

The Boro won 1-0 through a goal in the first 10 minutes from Mc Carthy. and 10 minutes later he lifted the ball over the keeper but one of the Everton centre backs got back to clear as the ball bounced gently towards the empty net. There were a couple of other chances as Boro dominated and outplayed the Everton lads.


I was very surprised at the ineffectiveness of the Everton team but balance that with an outstanding performance from Adam Jackson against their most potent attacking threat ( wearing a headband as he had 10 stitches in his head!). McAloon and McCarthy kept the defence busy and Mark Kitching made a valuable midfield contribution.


Second half Everton made a couple of changes which mean that Jacko had no one to mark and slowly but surely they go into the game but persisted in playing to the left wing where Bradley Halliday gave a cracking performance at right back. With a bit more calmness in front of goal they could easily have equalised. They then brought on a couple of subs that added to their effectiveness but the defence held out and Leutwiler had little to do although there was one save that was essential. Having said all that Boro hit the angle of the post and crossbar with a header from a corner about half way through the second half


two wins in two nights one at Rotherham for England and one for Boro at Southport leaves me with a good feeling so hopefully the Millwall fixture will give the first team a similar result.


...... and finally a congratulations to Bryn Morris for being tapped up for the u 21 squad
