RICHARD WRIGHT MAY FACE SAINTS ON FRIDAY
EVERTON manager David Moyes has revealed that injured goalkeeper Richard Wright may well figure in Friday's friendly against Saints at Treflan.
The Blues' boss is keen for his first choice stopper to get some action as soon as possible.
Wright - who was Moyes' biggest summer signing in 2002 in a deal worth £3.5 million - hasn't played in any of the Toffee's pre-season friendlies after injuring his shoulder in a freak accident during the summer.
"The original plan was for Richard to play in Sunday's match against Bologna," said Moyes.
"He's still on course for that, but he has an outside chance of playing on Friday.
The visit of Everton will be Saints' final friendly before they take on the might of Manchester City in the Uefa Cup preliminary round.
The Blues require very little introduction, although what side will be seen out in Llansantffraid remains to be seen.
In a recent friendly at Rhyl (which they drew 1-1), the Toffees fielded no less than nine players eligible for the club's Under-19 side.
Among the current batch of Everton starlets is Stephen Schumacher, who was captain of the England Under-16 side when Saints' new non-contract signing, Steven Beck, gained a cap also.
It will be interesting to compare the two if Beck plays on Friday.
Andy Holden, Everton's reserve team manager, says: "It will be hard, particularly if we’ve only got youngsters to choose from, it will be a big test for them.
"TNS are a full-time outfit and they're playing in Europe, as we all know, and it should be a very interesting game."
Everton had their best season for some time in the Premiership last season, finishing in eighth position under young manager David Moyes.
The game is pay at the gate, adults £6, children/senior citizens £3 - kick-off 7.30 pm.
