Everton earn friendly draw against Celtic reserves

Everton reserves played out a 1-1 friendly draw with Celtic yesterday.

The Blues' second string travelled to Glasgow for a friendly match which proved a strong test for their final game of their 2008/09 season.

Celtic, who looked dangerous from a number of set-pieces throughout the clash, were caught out in the final ten minutes as John Irving's saved effort travelled out to John Paul Kissock, whose left-footed strike hit the back of the net in spectacular fashion.

"All in all it was a good exercise for the lads", said Reserve team manager Andy Holden to evertonfc.com.

"They showed a good attitude throughout and John Paul Kissock scored a really good winner."
