Everton’s ‘Hall of Fame’ Events through the Decades – Rob Sawyer

Friday, 10 March, 2017 sees the staging of a Gwladys Street’s Hall of Fame event after an eight year hiatus. At The Hilton Hotel John Bailey, Pat Van Den Hauwe, Nigel Martyn, Ian Snodin and Kevin Campbell will join the 120-plus previous inductees in the pantheon of Blues greats. The concept of an independent Everton Hall of Fame was the brainchild of Dr David France, the uber Toffees fanatic, who was inspired by the veneration afforded ex-baseball players in the USA.  It was the first of its kind in the United Kingdom.

Take your foreign currency to St Lukes today for charity

The EFC Heritage Society and The Ruleteros Society are still collecting foreign currency in support of the Former Players  Foundations of the United Kingdom and Chile. We have had former players come and support us and some fans have already donated at St Lukes church before every home game. Thank you to all those who have helped so far. We are also collecting kits for Kit Aid, which can be deposited at St Luke’s church as well. KitAid now has Regional Co-ordinators around the country collecting kits, boots and equipment from Grass Roots level to the Premiership. We also receive kit from major suppliers including new kit that cannot be resold in the UK which would otherwise end up in landfill, recycling approximately 15 tonnes of unwanted kit annually.

Through these partners, it not only provides shirts and football equipment but encourages inclusion, drawing people together as...
