George Green is hoping to capitalise on a strong start for Everton Under 18’s in this seasons FA Youth Cup. Green has been in goalscoring form this season for the Under 18’s and has also played for the under 21’s and believes that the future is bright.
Green scored twice lastnight against Brighton and hopes to go all the way in this years competition, something the blues haven’t done since 1998.
Green said: “We always try to better last year’s performance. We got to the quarter-finals last year and hopefully we can win it this year.
“We’ve been around about first or second all season in the league, so we know we’ve got a good side at the moment.”
“We knew Brighton were a good passing side when in possession but we also knew they had mistakes in them and we capitalised,” the 17-year-old added.
“Our first goal came from a mistake and then it was a penalty, which we don’t really know what happened, but it’s always good to get that second goal.
“It’s brilliant, but not just for me – for the lads as well. To get through to the fourth round is what we came here to do and we did it, so it feels good.
“I hope I’ve shown a good account of myself. There were plenty watching, both staff wise and fans. I just want to carry on doing what I’m doing and the future looks bright hopefully.”
Dewsbury born Green was bought from Bradford City for a fee that could eventually rise to £2m
