Jordan Pickford continues to impress at the World Cup in Qatar but he’s not the only Everton goalkeeper in form right now.

Harry Tyrer is currently on loan at Chester FC and has been displaying his quality in the National League North.

The 20-year-old from Crosby first featured in Everton’s first team during the 2020 pre-season and has played for the Blues U23’s. The young keeper told MerseySportLive that the players and staff at Goodison have been key to his development.

He said: “I always listen to the older lads, Jordan Pickford and Asmir Begovic. They must have over 1000 games under their belt. I will always listen to them and their feedback. I’ll ask questions to try and learn from them.

“They’ve all been really helpful and supportive throughout my career. My coach at Everton, Alan Kelly, has also been very influential in my overall development. He continues to support me by analysing my games and supporting me.”

Whilst out on loan, Tyrer is now getting valuable weekly action at the Deva Stadium under manager, Calum McIntyre. The Chester boss was excited to bring in the young goalkeeper and Tyrer has lived up to expectations.

He said: “It’s massive knowing that the manager you’re playing for is giving you praise, it’s something any player wants to feel.

“You want to win every game for that manager and repay what he has given me, in terms of taking a chance on a young keeper.

“I’m still only 20 and at this level it can be a risk taking a chance on a young goalkeeper. So, I owe a lot of credit to him, for taking the risk and bringing me in on loan.”

Tyrer has earned all the praise he has been getting from both fans and manager. He featured in the November 27th Vanarama National League North team of the day as well as in the team of the week two weeks prior.

This came after Chester ended Scarborough Athletics’ year-long undefeated home run, in an impressive 3-1 win. Tyrer was terrific between the sticks and the travelling fans showed their appreciation after the final whistle.

He said: “Going away to Scarborough was always going to be tough, as they hadn’t been beaten at home in over a year.

“When you win away it’s unbelievable, and you want to repay the fans. They travel all across the country and you want to celebrate with them.

“Our away record this season is unbelievable, and I just want to join in with their celebrations. When they’re singing songs about me, I want to just join in with them and thank them for the support they’ve shown me.”
