The first one is TALLIED

Everything is ALL and drawn (as in football or cricket) is TIED - one inside t'other is TALLIED = agreed

Thank you Brackendale. Your answer gives another letter to 2nd clue....
L?L? Do you think Lily might be the answer?

I think it is LILY being, as mamya says, an anagram of I'll and Y(oung). If it is, it is not the best clue I ever saw - where is the indicator of the anagram? Why is "young" contracted to Y? But what else could it be? More questions than answers, I'm afraid!

Im sure you're right but I still say it is not the best anagram indicator I ever saw! And I still don't see why young is contracted to Y!
