Everton were blown away inside 45 minutes as our Under-17s booked their place in the semi-finals of the PL U17 Cup.

Goals from Calum Kavanagh, Jack Stott, and Josh Coburn proved the difference between the two sides as Mark Tinkler's side cruised to a 3-1 victory at Darlington's Mowden Park stadium.

Kavanagh cashed in on an error to slam home the first after a dominant opening by Boro before Stott doubled the advantage with a superb strike.

Coburn made it 3-0 when he headed home a George Gitau cross and Boro were home and hosed before the break.

It could have been even more, but Kavanagh was denied from the penalty spot after Josh Marshall was bundled over the box, and Jack Hannah also went close with a header after getting up well.

Everton pulled a goal back with 15 minutes remaining, but Boro saw the game out comfortably without any other scares.
