On This Day: 07/01
Everton appointed Mike Walker as manager ON THIS DAY in 1994.
His appointment to the Goodison hot-seat was greeted with optimism by the fans - a feel good factor that was substantiated by a splendid 6-2 win over Swindon in his home debut.
Walker lost his way though and May 7th 1994 was very much a time to panic!
The Toffees eventually defeated Wimbledon to secure top-flight status that day, but it was a totally unacceptable situation for Everton to be in.
No wins from the opening 12 matches the following season proved to be too much for the Board of Directors to tolerate and Walker's short but eventful reign was terminated.
During his time at the club he signed Duncan Ferguson, took the gamble on Daniel Amokachi and brought Anders Limpar to the club.
Adrian Heath signed for Everton ON THIS DAY in 1982.
He came from Stoke City for a record fee of £700,000.
The nippy forward helped Everton to two League titles and the FA Cup during his seven years at the club.
During his Everton career he made 293 appearances scoring 89 goals.
