According to the Liverpool Echo, there is a possibility for Everton academy graduates Lewis Warrington and Tom Cannon to receive opportunities in the first team during the upcoming season, relays the GN. This potential chance arose as the young duo joined the senior Everton players for the first day of pre-season training on Thursday, July 6.
Warrington has previously gained experience through loan spells at Tranmere Rovers and Fleetwood Town, while Cannon had a loan stint at Preston North End. This presents a significant opportunity for Everton’s young talents to impress both manager Sean Dyche and the senior players within the squad.
At the Premier League level, it is not common for young players to receive such opportunities, as they are often sent out on loan to lower-division clubs. Therefore, this represents a valuable chance for the Everton youngsters to showcase their abilities and make an impact within the team.
As writes the Liverpool Echo: “The first day back was not just for senior players with academy starlets also involved,”
“Among them were Lewis Warrington and Tom Cannon, two players who could potentially get a chance under Dyche.”
