Match report: Everton 3-3 Arsenal U-23s

An eventful match at Southport FC saw six goals, a red card and the points shared as we twice came from a goal down to draw with Everton.

The hosts started brightly and almost took the lead inside five minutes when the ball fell to Kyle John on the edge of the box, but his powerful effort flew wide.

Inside 17 minutes, Joseph Olowu broke the deadlock when he met Matt Smith’s corner at the near post, and his header was too powerful for former Gunner Joao Virginia to keep out.

The hosts then equalised shortly after when Ellis Simms collected the ball from Antony Evans and poked the ball past Matt Macey.
