The Shareholders’ Annual Dinner will this year take place on May 23rd in the Alex Young Suite from 19:30.
Guests of the Association who will be joining us on the night include;
Jimmy came through the youth ranks at Everton, a tricky winger he was a member of the Championship Winning team in 1970. He moved onto Luton in '73 and later became one of the pioneers of football in the USA in the North American Soccer League (NASL), Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) and the American Soccer League (ASL) in Memphis, Cleveland and Oklahoma.
Bought from Blackburn Rovers for £300,000 John went on to make over 150 appearances for the Blues and was both an FA Cup Winner and a member of the Championship Winning side of 1984-85
Originally from the dark side but once he'd seen the light Kevin went on to play over 300 games for the Blues.
A double Championship Winning player he was also part of the successful FA Cup and European Cup Winners Cup winning sides. Kevin now runs the U18's coaching set-up at Finch Farm and last season his team were the U-18 Premier League Champions.
Pat Van Den Hauwe
Pat joined us from Birmingham for around £100,000 and played approaching 150 games over the 5-years he was with us. But what a 5 years they were, 2 league championships, an FA Cup and the European Cup Winners Cup medals all ended up in his collection. He later added another FA Cup winners medal from his time at Spurs. Pat will perhaps be best remembered for one of the two goals he scored for us being the championship winning goal away to Norwich City and is of course immortalised in song with his nickname "Psycho Pat".
Famously refusing to go over to the dark-side Ian joined the great team of the late 80's from Leeds United for a fee of £840,000. Certainly the best decision of his life as he immediately became part of the Championship winning team and went on to make almost 200 appearances for the club. He spent a few years as a manager with Doncaster Rovers before embarking on a media career and returning to Goodison as a Club Ambassador.
An FA Cup winner in 1995 this former Chelsea player is probably best remembered for scoring two goals, including a highly pressured penalty, on that horrendous day in 1994. Like many ex-players Graham worked in the media before returning to Goodison as a Club Ambassador.
Further guests will be announced when confirmed.
