Hallum Hope (Everton)
Starting life with his hometown club Manchester City as a junior, he moved to Everton in 2005. The 17 year-old striker is one of Everton’s most exciting prospects to have emerged since Wayne Rooney and has been prolific at every level. With predatory instincts, pace and good movement, Hope is one of England U17’s leading marksmen and has already scored 8 goals in 10 appearances for his country. In 2008 at the age of 14 years-old, Hope’s hat-trick helped Everton claimed a 3-2 comeback victory over Wolves in the Junior Final at the Milk Cup. A year later, Hope comfortably helped Everton to retain the title in a 4-1 victory over Sheffield United, scoring two goals in the final and five goals in the tournament. Earning rave reviews he will be soon be knocking on the door of David Moyes.
