From great triumphs to great escapes Everton FC On This Day recounts, in diary form, major events and magic moments in the club's history. A club which was a founder member of both the Football League and the Premier League; a club which has spent more seasons in England's top flight than any other; and a club which has been Champions nine times alongside the glories of five FA Cup wins and European successes, to boot. With entries for every day of the year to document the history of a global name in football, it records everything from the birth of Everton FC and the club's very early days as Victorian pioneers, to the emergence of Wayne Rooney as the latest stellar name to graduate from the Everton youth ranks in the early 21st Century. It tells the story of Dixie Dean, with his 60 league goals in a single season and his 37 Everton hat-tricks. Featuring the likes of Tommy Lawton, Joe Mercer, the 'Golden Vision' Alex Young and the 1960s 'Holy Trinity' of Colin Harvey, Howard Kendall and Alan Ball. It includes Everton's famous number nines: not only Dean, Lawton and Young but also Hickson, Royle and Latchford; Sharp, Gray and Ferguson. It recounts the highs of League Championship-winning teams and the historic comeback from 2-0 down to win the 1966 FA Cup Final. It reveals a club which broke British transfer records, which set standards for progress on and off the pitch and which became renowned worldwide for the football produced at the 'School Of Science'. Everton On This Day covers the ups and downs of a famous football club, and will tell readers why, as the Evertonians sing: "It's a grand old team to play for, it's a grand old team to support".
