Everton boss Moyes happy to take chance on lower league talent

Everton boss David Moyes says he'll continue to scout for talent in the lower leagues.

Moyes has just seen Seamus Coleman extend his contract after plucking him out of the Irish Premier League.

On the trawl for players in the lower leagues, Moyes said: "You have to hope (it is worth the gamble) because if they don't come from the leagues below that means they are already at a club academy.

"If you are a player in the Championship, League One or Two or in Ireland you have to hope the scouts are out watching and you can play well enough to get recognised."
