Crown Football Round-Up (07/12/2018)
Congratulations to 18-year-old Max Sheaf who has signed a contract extension with Hull City. The young midfielder will continue his development with the club after signing a new two and a half year deal, keeping him at the club until 2021.
Max said “It’s pleasing because it’s something that I have been targeting since the start of the season. To see a reward for the hard work that you’ve been putting in is always satisfying, and I know that I have the right people around me here to continue to progress.”
Max joined the Hull City Academy in 2016 having previously been on the books at Arsenal.
Antony Evans scored the winner for Everton U23’s in their Premier League Cup match against Sheffield United on Friday.
The 21-year-old curled in a brilliant free-kick from 20-yards out, as the young Blues made it three wins from three in Premier League Cup Group B.
Speaking on the goal boss David Unsworth said “It was a terrific strike from Antony Evans. Every time we get a free-kick from anywhere near that distance, I expect him to score. He is technically very good and he scores from that range consistently in training.”
Watch the fantastic goal below:
Antony was also in Premier League 2 action this afternoon against Tottenham Hotspur U23's. The team came from behind, with Everton's first goal coming as Antony set up Sambou, who was able to slide into the net from a couple of yards out.
