Everton to pitch youngsters into Limassol clash

The 63-year-old has remained at home as he has a pre-arranged appointment to attend and that the Toffees will now be led by first-team coaches Craig Shakespeare and Duncan Ferguson.

Sam Allardyce has given Everton debuts to two youngsters, Harry Charlsey and Fraser Hornby, with Everton's future in the competition already decided.

Everton have had a very poor season and it seems like they are now in a relegation battle in the English Premier League.


With Everton already eliminated from the competition it seems to make sense to give young players a runout - and most Everton fans agree.

Beni Baningime starts at right-back in a defence with Morgan Feeney and Muhamed Besic in the centre.

Kenny believes Everton's improvement in recent games proves the players have all taken to Allardyce's style. There are high hopes at Finch Farm for the Bootle-born defender.


Asked for an injury update on that pair amid rumours that Sandro, who has made just three Premier League starts since arriving at Everton from Malaga in July, had picked up a knock, Shakespeare replied: "Both of those players haven't travelled".

Nathan Broadhead - Perhaps the most technically proficient of those mentioned, Wales youth global Broadhead plays along the forward line and has a penchant for the spectacular.

Everton finished their campaign in third position, racking up four points from six games.


The chances of that record improving here appear slim given the under-strength squad sent out to Cyprus, and the attention being paid to Sunday's Merseyside derby at Anfield.
