Welcome to the re-launched Everton FC Shareholders’ Association website, efcsa.org. Whilst our website has been online for many of years the Executive Committee recognised that the website should be regularly updated to address many of the pertinent issues currently affecting the club. In response, it is our intention to offer the reader a website that not only address’ matters pertinent to the team and the manager but issues that also concern the now all important business side of Everton Football Club. We hope that the website will prove to be a valuable resource to not only members of the Shareholders Association and other shareholders of the Club, but also the wider Evertonian community who will be able to review and consider the business side of the Club and its impact on team affairs and ultimately the success of the Club. We hope you find the site of interest and revisit it over the weeks and months ahead as it evolves.

Magaye Gueye sponsored by the Shareholders’ Association

After realising only one of our senior players, Magaye Gueye, was without a sponsor, a member of the Everton Shareholders’ Association stepped in and agreed sponsorship on behalf of the Association.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to demonstrate our support of the Club on the pitch in this way, and hope our backing will inspire Magaye to further success in his career – another assist in the semi would be a good start!

Shareholder Association Members Consultation Results

Our fixture against Stoke City on the 4th December 2011 marked the 4th anniversary of the 128th and last Annual General Meeting held by the Club. The Shareholders Association can announce that the survey of Association Members revealed that all respondents stated their requirement for the Articles of Association be amended so that the Club recommences the long standing tradition of holding formal Annual General Meetings to discuss the business of Everton Football Club Company Ltd. It is the intention of the Executive Committee of the Association to extend the survey / consultation to all Shareholders of Everton Football Club.    

Shareholders Association Members Consultation

In early November 2011, Everton FC Shareholders’ Association conducted an initial consultation with current and recent members of the Shareholders’ Association. The purpose of the consultation was to identify and act upon the concerns of those Shareholders who participated in the survey.

A copy of the survey/consultation document and accompanying letter can be found here and here

The Executive Committee of the Shareholders Association would welcome the completed survey / consultation document of any other Shareholders of Everton Football Club who have not been contacted directly by the Association.

Shareholders Association Executive Committee Ballot Results 2011

Following the Shareholders Association Annual General Meeting on the 15th August 2011 changes were made to the composition of the Executive Committee.

Michael Owen, Richard Lewis and Julia Mountfield did not offer themselves for re-election having decided to step down after serving on the committee for a number of years. There were 16 nominations received for 14 places on the committee with the following members successfully being elected to serve the Association for the year 2011 – 2012: Anne Asquith, James Asquith, John Blain, Adrienne Bonwick, Peter Edwards, Mark Grayson, Tony Heslop, Dave Kelly, Stan Needham, Freddy Peacock, Rev. Harry Ross, Mary Westhead, Paul Wharton and Keith Wilson.

The Chairman thanked Paul Gabbutt and Pauleen Laphan for standing and hoped they would consider offering themselves for election onto the committee again in future years. Particular thanks went to Pauleen Laphan in recognition for her long service on the Executive Committee.

The ballot results saw the introduction of four new committee members in the form of Mark Grayson, Dave Kelly, Rev. Harry Ross and Mary Westhead.

The newly elected Executive Committee members intend to serve the Association to their best of their ability for the forthcoming year.

In Grateful Remembrance

On Friday, 11th November at the eleventh hour, in the eleventh year, Evertonians and others gathered to pay their respects to an exceptional group of young men, players from here and from Chile who gave their lives in the two World Wars. The service began at 10.40 at the Plaque based at the Park End, close to the Dixie Dean statue at Goodison Park. Research on the seven who feature on the Plaques – an identical one in Spanish is destined for the Sausalito Stadium in Viña del Mar, home of Everton Chile – was carried out by Dr David France, Dr John Rowlands, Paul Wharton, John Shearon, Frank Gorman and Linda Lines. The names were carved with impeccable skill by master mason John Smith of Crosby Memorials. The following all played for Everton F.C.: Brian Atkins, Airman and gunner killed on duty in 1944, Thomas Gracie, who also played for Liverpool and fought with the Royal Scots, Leigh Richmond Roose a charismatic goalkeeper killed on the Western front in 1917, Bill Sumner, a winger and pilot who died in an accident in India in 1944 and Wilfred Toman, who died fighting with the King’s regiment on the Western Front. Frank Boundy and Malcolm Fraser, were founder members of Everton Chile in 1909and had British roots which drew them from Chile to Europe to volunteer; they both died at the Somme in 1916. Some were barely out of their teens, heroes on the pitch and certainly on the battlefield. This is why Dr France and the Everton Shareholders’ Association decided to create a lasting memorial. The service at Goodison was conducted by Reverend Harry Ross and representatives of the Club, the Shareholders’ Association, Evertonians, as well as representatives from a number of regiments for whom the seven fought also attended. On the other side of the world, at Chile Everton’s Sausalito Stadium, a similar service of dedication and commemoration also took place on Sunday, 13th November (11:00 local time) with John Shearon representing the Shareholders’ Association, The Ruleteros Society and Evertonians generally.
