Everton FC Heritage Society Helps You To Know Your History

From the official Everton FC website…

‘The Know Your History feature is the result of a collaboration between Everton Football Club and the Everton FC Heritage Society and have so far featured the renaming in 1879 from St Domingo’s FC, our first title in 1891, the split from Anfield in 1892 and Dixie Dean’s 60-goal season.

The content behind the films, and many of the images, have been provided by Heritage Society members, and Everton experts, Peter Lupson, Jamie Yates, Rob Sawyer and Simon Hart.

The Society has worked closely with Everton on a number of initiatives and has been the driving force behind some terrific projects such as the rededication of former player gravestones, the securing of medals for Derek Temple and Adrian Heath, and evenings at Goodison Park celebrating the likes of Dixie Dean, Joe Mercer and, most recently, Harry Catterick.

And, of course, thousands of Evertonians regularly enjoy the magnificent displays in the church hall of St Luke’s every matchday.’
