Undoubtedly one of the finest goalkeepers of his generation, Neville Southall will always be considered as one of best Everton players ever.

The legendary shot stopper was signed by iconic Everton manager Howard Kendall for £150,000 which proved to be a bargain as Southall soon rivalled Ray Clemence and Peter Shilton for the title of the best goalkeeper in England. The Welshman was an integral part of Everton in their glory days which saw them win two First Division titles, two FA Cups, four Community Shields and one League Cup.

Southall also picked up loads of personal awards for his goalkeeping skills which included him being included in the PFA Team Of The Year four consecutive times. He was also named as one of the greatest players of the 20th Century by World Soccer.

Without a doubt, Dixie Dean is Everton’s best player of all time. With a total of 383 goals, Dixie Dean still holds the record as Everton’s top scorer. During his 12-year career, Dixie Dean became the Merseyside club’s top goal scorer with 383 goals in all competitions and still holds the English national record of most goals in a season with 61 goals in the 1927-1928 season.

On the foot of the Dixie Dean statue outside Goodison Park are the words ‘Footballer, Gentleman, Evertonian’. No words could summarise this great man better.
