Everton boss Moyes delighted with academy graduates Vaughan, Anichebe

Everton boss Dave Moyes says the club is delighted with the progress of academy graduates James Vaughan and Victor Anichebe at home and in Europe this season.

"As academy players we thought they both had a chance although I don't think they were marked down as certainties either," admitted Moyes yesterday. "They are different types of players but what they do have in common is that they have worked for it. And we have given them their chance. We have often done that for young players here.

"James is doing really well and Victor has got a real opportunity if he knuckles down and has a real determination to succeed. He made a great impact when he came on in Nuremberg, as he has done several times this season, and he needs to do that from the start. That will come with maturity and experience."
