As they sat eating their pre-match meal at USM Finch Farm ahead of this month's Premier League Cup final against Newcastle United, Everton's Under-23s players will have had plenty on their minds.
How would the game go? Would they be able to capitalise on home advantage and get the victory they needed to secure an unprecedented league and cup double?
What they wouldn't have been anticipating was having their musings interrupted by Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright and Majority Shareholder Farhad Moshiri, the pair walking in on lunch and calling an impromptu meeting to inform them of not one Dixies success but two.
Watch the video above or here to see what happened when Mr Kenwright and Mr Moshiri told the young Blues of their second Howard Kendall Award win in three seasons - and followed up that news with another Giant surprise!
