The unit was carried on to the field by the Everton captain, Phil Jagielka, with Jack enjoying the occasion in real-time from his home via a camera, microphone and speaker linked to his tablet and by also interacting with the players in the tunnel.

An early second-half strike from Theo Walcott was enough for Everton to beat Newcastle 1-0 in the Premier League on Monday and send the Toffees into eighth place.

However after Theo Walcott's goal noticed Everton rise to eighth within the Premier League, Allardyce got here out on the defensive in his post-match interview and urged it was opponents Newcastle who deployed "unfavourable" ways.

Nevertheless, Allardyce is keen to move on from the whole affair and feels the win over the Magpies will help do that. We found it very hard to break them down because they had all 10players behind the ball in their own half and you have to be patient. I don't dwell on it. We did really well to be here to play against this team. Yannick Bolasie swung in a cross from deep on the right that dropped kindly for Walcott at the far post, before the winger cut inside and clinically fired into the roof of the net to break the deadlock.

Newcastle, who had won four games in a row, nearly conjured up a last-gasp equaliser but Jacob Murphy's cross was brilliantly headed away by Seamus Coleman. And then we had to do a little bit of desperate defending to secure the victory that we deserved.

FA apologises for mocking Harry Kane on FA Cup Twitter feed
Like I say, it's annoying and hard to put your finger on why it keeps happening but we have to find a way around it. Kane completed all 90 minutes at Wembley, but was unable to affect the game and Nicol says he was terrible .

"Theo's come up with his third goal since he arrived and it was the victor".

Newcastle's recent good run has lifted them well clear of relegation trouble and their safety is virtually assured already, even if the point they need to guarantee it eluded them on Merseyside.

Everton's head of engagement, Scott McLeod, said: "The most important thing for everybody at the club is that we have had the opportunity, through this awesome technology and the work with No Isolation and WellChild, to do something incredible for an inspirational young Evertonian".

"We had two or three chances". I'm working with a squad of players that I've inherited and all the staff behind the scenes are striving to make them better.
