On This Day: 08/12
Mick Lyons was born in Liverpool ON THIS DAY in 1951.
Originally a striker, Mick Lyons was in the Everton â€˜A' team when Tommy Casey switched him to centre-back.
He made his first team debut in 1970/71 and went on to become an Everton star.
A stalwart of the Toffee's defence for over ten years, he always gave his all for the club, readily admitting that he would run through a brick wall to further the Everton cause.
During his Blues career he made 462 appearances, netting 59 times.
Mick joined Sheffield Wednesday in 1982 and helped them gain promotion from Division Two before sampling management at Grimsby.
He was a coach at Everton when Colin Harvey was in charge and then had a similar job at Wigan.
