30. Mason Holgate (Another bargain from Barnsley)

Post  SouthernSmugToffee on Sun 21 Aug 2016, 7:09 pm

Mason Holgate followed in the footsteps of Jones Stones, who ironically was in the throes of a transfer saga to Chelsea as Holgate joined Everton. And who should he involved against in his first match for Everton? Why Barnsley, of course, at Oakwell in the League Cup, where John Stones was widely believed to be making his last appearance for the Royal Blues in a saga that saw Everton resist all efforts to pry him away.

Holgate, who can play at centre-half or right-back, was handed his professional debut by the Tykes in December 2014 and went on to make 20 appearances in League One and two in the FA Cup that term. Holgate would be an unused sub in that Barnsley game for Everton and would only appear on the siubs bench for a couple of Premier League games at the senior level in his first season at Goodison Park, but was a regular for the David Unsworth's Under-21s.

The BBC did a spot on him on MOTD, saying he is another golden Everton find.
