David Unsworth excited by Everton's young talent

Everton's under-21 side beat Southampton 2-0 in their most recent fixture.

David Unsworth has told Everton's official website that the current group of youngsters in the under-21 set-up is the finest he has worked with at the club. 

Unsworth has been working at Everton since 2013, and he says that the class of 2015/16 are the most talented he has coached.

"They are the finest crop of players I've ever had the privilege to work with," Unsworth said. "They are as honest as the day is long and they're all hungry to be Everton players."

Everton won their most recent under-21 fixture 2-0 against Southampton, and they have a lot of players within that group who are being tipped for big things in the future.

The likes of Tyias Browning and Brendan Galloway have both stepped up from the development squad to become first-team regulars this season, and they have shown the quality which exists outside of the senior ranks.

As well as Browning and Galloway, Everton also have another set of youngsters starting to move to the fringes of the starting line-up.

The likes of Ryan Ledson, Tom Davies and Mason Holgate are all tipped to have bright futures on Merseyside, and the club will be hoping that they can continue to progress at their current rate.

Everton's development side are currently sat n fifth place in the Premier League's under-21's table, and they have lost just two of their opening seven matches.
