Everton manager David Moyes has revealed his attempts to get a Toffees 'B' team into the Conference were scuppered by red tape.

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has backed a change to the existing system for reserve teams by suggesting England should look to the example set by Spain, where top-flight clubs field second string sides in lower divisions. Several years ago Moyes explored a similar option but was frustrated by the sheer depth of the non-league football pyramid.

"Four or five years ago I would have liked to have put an Everton reserve team into the Conference because it would have been better football for them," he said.
