10 men Under-18s hold Everton to 1-1 draw

Marcus Forss strike opened scoring

ALBION’s Under-18 side drew 1-1 at Everton on Saturday morning in the Barclays U18 Premier League.

The Baggies opened the scoring shortly after the hour mark when Marcus Forss forced the ball home from an acute angle inside the penalty area.

However, with just 15 minutes left on the clock, centre-back Dara O’Shea was sent-off for a second bookable offence, and Everton made their numerical advantage count five minutes from the end to grab a share of the spoils.

ALBION: Hall, Wilson, O’Shea, Barbir, Melbourne, Sweeney, Meredith, Artymatas (Piggott 75), Pritchatt, Forss (Clayton-Phillips 78), Pierce (Wilding 90).

Unused subs: Hause, Scrivens.
