Jim Keoghan book signing – 19 December

Jim Koeghan will be signing copies of his book, Highs Lows & Bakayokos: Everton In The 90s with the EFC Heritage Society at St Luke's church before the Merseyside derby on Monday 19 October between 5:30pm and 7:30pm. Stop by upstairs in St Luke's before the match to meet Jim and buy the book if you haven't already.
