Son of Tim Cahill among 13 academy scholars to pen terms with Everton

Son of Tim Cahill among 13 academy scholars to pen terms with Everton

Cahill family name continues at Everton

Everton are set to welcome a fresh new batch of promoted youngsters up the development chain after thirteen academy scholars penned terms with the Goodison Park outfit, including Shae Cahill; son of cult hero and former Australian international Tim Cahill.

Shae – who has already surpassed his sixteenth birthday – will now join the club and go straight into the U18 setup under Paul Tait, after full terms have given all 13-players promotions up the internal Everton pyramid.

Cahill – a midfielder just as his father before him – is joined by the following twelve players, who are set to continue their development at the club’s Finch Farm academy:

Ed Jones (Defender), Harry Wright (Defender), Charlie Wilson (Defender), Jenson Metcalfe (Midfielder), Jack Tierney (Defender), Saja Manafa (Midfielder), Troy Smikle-James (Forward), Owen Barker (Forward), Dylan Graham (Goalkeeper), Halid Djankpata (Midfielder), Sam Coughlan (Midfielder), Isaac Heath (Midfielder)

Cult-hero status and fatherly footsteps to follow

Few players have helped define a club in the Premier League era more than Australian icon Tim Cahill during his time at Everton.

The Sydney-native was a mainstay at Goodison Park (2004-12) during the bulk of the David Moyes era (2002-13), making 226-appearances in the Premier League while hitting 56-goals and 23-assists during a highly successful spell that saw Everton finish in the European places on multiple occasions.

As a father, Cahill can now boast that both of his sons are on track to build professional careers of their own. Apart from Shae progressing through the Everton set-up, his other son Kyah – 18 – recently joined the academy set-up at CD Leganes after his stint with Macclesfield Town.
