Everton have one of the most respected youth systems in the English Premier League.
Not only have the Toffees helped nurture the best English footballer of his generation, Wayne Rooney, but they have also been responsible for a handful of first-teamers and squad players throughout the English leagues.
A cash-strapped team like Everton needs a solid youth foundation to stay relevant and the Blues have demonstrated over the years, with their often above-expectation league finishes, the importance of youth development.
Some of the players on this list have already experienced first-team action for the Toffees whilst others are waiting in the wings, and some may get their chance this season as they are listed in Everton's first-team squad.
With the re-vamp of the youth game in England underway, thanks to the launch of the Barclays Under 21 Premier League in place of the reserve system, Everton hopes they can continue their strong history of player development by bringing these 6 players into the first-team fold.
