Everton will play their first friendly of the season with a young squad. With the majority of the senior players yet to return to training due to the Euro's, some of the youngsters should get a run out.
With the majority of the squad still away following international duty, Tony Hibbert and Ossie are expected to lead the youngsters and Hibbo is looking forward to it.
Hibbo said: 'The lads are good players but they are young as well and need experience - that is why they have been training with us.'
'Hopefully a bit of our experience is rubbing off on them because that is how you learn your football. You learn a hell of a lot as a young player being around the older lads. They are keen and are always at the front when we are running so they kind of pull us all along.'
'Individually they are all different but if they want any advice they know we are here to help them. They are a good bunch, a mixture, some are quiet and some loud but they respect us and are keen to show us what they can do on the pitch.'
'I can't wait to play. We have been training hard but the players just want to play football.'
'You get your main fitness from playing games because you can only do so much running.'
