Everton's Under 18 side advanced to the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup this evening with an extra-time victory over 2004 winners Middlesbrough.

With Boro's first team being destroyed by Blackpool at the Riverside, the Youth Cup game took place at Billingham Synthonia's PTS Stadium.

Jose Baxter, Shane Duffy and Shkodran Mustafi all started for the Blues and Baxter was influential throughout.

Despite both sides hitting the woodwork, extra time was needed to separate the two sides. With 103 minutes on the clock Conor McAleny was in the perfect spot to head home the only goal of the game and send Everton through.
