Did You Know? Pennington is equally adaptable playing in central defence and at right-back!

Matthew Pennington is a versatile defender who has been at Everton since the age of 11.

In July 2013, the Warrington-born youngster signed his first professional contract which will keep him at Goodison Park until the summer of 2015.

Pennington was a regular for the Under-18s side which reached the quarter-final of the FA Youth Cup and the semi-finals of the Premier Academy League during 2012/13.

He also made nine appearances for Alan Stubbs’ Under-21s team and is expected to feature more frequently during the forthcoming campaign.

He was rewarded for the high standard of his performances last season by receiving a call-up to England Under-19s squad for the international against Turkey in March 2013, where he appeared as a second-half substitute in a 1-0 victory.
