Coleman enjoying his football

The 22-year-old Irishman is a full-back by trade but Toffees

manager David Moyes has utilised him as a winger in recent games.

Coleman has been in good form of late and on his return to

Blackpool at the weekend, the club where he spent a spell on loan

last season, he scored in a 2-2 draw. On his more attack-minded

role, he said: “It’s a different position, but I really enjoy it.

“You have to play where the boss says, but I’m getting game time,

which is great. “I’ve had a few games at Everton now, but I know

I’m not a regular yet. I just need to keep impressing.” Coleman,

formerly of Sligo Rovers, played nine times in the Championship for

the Tangerines last term as they won promotion via the play-offs.

He did not celebrate his effort at Bloomfield Road on Saturday, and

was delighted by the reception he received from the home fans. “It

was a great reception,” he told Everton’s official website. “The

fans were chanting just before kick-off which means that I must

have done alright when I was here, so it was good. “It was always

going to be special coming back and I was looking forward to it and

to get a goal was an extra bonus for me.” On not celebrating his

goal, he remarked: “I wouldn’t be a big celebrator anyway but I

didn’t want to rub it in their faces because they treated me well

when I was here. “But obviously I was chuffed inside.” The point

leaves Everton 11th in the Premier League and their next outing is

a home tie with Bolton on Wednesday.
