Club career[edit]

Lundstram has been developed as a football player by Everton from a very early age and signed a full-time scholarship in July 2010.

In February 2013, he joined Doncaster Rovers on loan.[3] He made his full league début for the club in a 1–1 draw against Yeovil Town on 23 February 2013.[4] Lundstram went on to make over a dozen appearances for Rovers, becoming a key part of the side that lifted the League One trophy come the end of the season.

On 28 November 2013, Lundstram joined Football League Championship side Yeovil Town on loan until January.[5] He made his debut against Watford, with Yeovil winning 0–3. He assisted Joe Edwards for the third goal. On 3 December, he scored on his second appearance for the club in a 1–0 win against Blackpool.[6] On 10 March 2014, Lundstram was recalled by Everton having become a peripheral figure at Yeovil, Lundstram returned having made 16 appearances for Yeovil scoring twice.

On 27 March 2014, Lundstram joined Football League One side Leyton Orient on a one month loan deal.[7] On 24 April 2014, Lundstram extended his loan stay until after the 2014 Football League play-offs.

International career[edit]

A strong tackling midfielder, who worked his way into the England U17 squad during the 2010–11 campaign after impressing in the Nordic Tournament.

His first full season on the international stage saw him play a major part in the U17s' run to the semi-final of the European Championship in Serbia. UEFA described Lundstram as an "influential catalyst in launching attacking moves" and he was also named in the "Tournament select squad".[8] Following the completion of the tournament, UEFA made comparisons to fellow Liverpool-born player Steven Gerrard and praised his "biting tackle" and a "fine range of passing to instigate attacks".[9]

Lundstram was named in the England squad that reached the quarter final of the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup under John Peacock. He played in a total of four games. England were eliminated from the competition by Germany having knocked Argentina out in the round of 16.[10]

The 2011–12 season saw him play twice for Noel Blake's U18s, captaining the side to a win against Poland before he made another step-up to the U19s squad, again under Blake, as he helped England to qualify for the European Championship Finals in Estonia. He scored the opening goal in a 2–1 victory over France in the final tournament. England reached the semi-final of the tournament and were eliminated from the competition by Greece.[11]

On 28 May 2013, he was named in manager Peter Taylor's 21-man squad for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[12] He made his debut on 16 June, in a 3–0 win in a warm-up game against Uruguay.[13]
