CHORLEY’S pre-season continued with another home defeat, albeit to a strong Everton development side featuring Bosnia international Mo Bešic in midfield.

A goalless first half gave the home side encouragement, but an error by Trialist (1) in goal gifted the Merseyside outfit a one-goal lead midway through the second half.

This was followed by a Manasse Mampala header as time ran down, allowing David Unsworth’s young side to take the spoils.

Magpies: Trialist (Eccles, 77′); Challoner (Agbozo, 77′), Blakeman, Teague (c), Trialist (Anson, 64′), Trialist, A.Newby (Trialist, 74′), Trialist, Trialist (Hooper, 55′), Holroyd (Carver, 64′), Trialist (Brickell, 74′).

Everton: Hansen; Astley, John, Bešic, Feeney (c), Pennington, Evans, Markelo, Hornby, Simms, Gordon. Subs: Denny, Rose, Mampala, Ouzounidis, Anderson.

HT 0-0 / FT 0-2

Goals: Own goal (68′), Mampala (83′)
