Youngster Frankie Swift has joined the Everton Academy from a local U8s Sunday league team and fans are buzzing over his career step.
As reported by the MHS Milan Twitter account, eight-year-old Frankie Swift has graduated from the casual youth league and has joined the ranks of Everton’s Academy system.
Plenty of players have come through Everton’s youth ranks and made their way into the reserve team and even the senior squad. Tom Davies is a grand and current example of a player who has worked his way up to play on the big stage. Not to mention Wayne Rooney who of course also rose through the Everton Academy to become one of the best English footballers and biggest household names.
Will Everton finish inside the top six this season?
Blues fans have flocked to the announcement to wish young Swift good luck and congratulate him on the opportunity. One supporter has labelled him a ‘superb player’ whilst another has summed up the news as ‘amazing’.
