On This Day: 05/05

Dixie Dean broke George Camsell's goalscoring record ON THIS DAY in 1928.

A crowd of 48,715 decided to go to Goodison to witness the handing over of the league championship trophy.

The Blues clinched the League three days earlier when Huddersfield's 3-0 defeat at Villa Park meant that Everton could not be caught at the top of the table.

Dean's record of 60 goals in one season is yet to be broken nearly 80 years later.

He scored in each of the first nine matches of the season - including all five in a 5-2 home defeat of Manchester United.

By Christmas he was halfway to his target. Goals 41, 42 and 43 came at Anfield in a 3-3 draw, but then a four game drought when nobody in an Everton jersey scored seemed to put the brakes on the record-charge. With nine matches remaining, Dean needed 17 goals for the record - a seemingly impossible target.

But after doubles against Derby, Blackburn, Sheffield United and Aston Villa were netted, a sparkling four goal haul at Burnley put the record in sight again.

Needing a hat-trick for the record, a header and a penalty kick equalled Camsell's record, then with time ticking away Dean broke the record outright with a powerful header in the dying minutes.
