v Wolfsburg

Thursday 18 September K.O. 20:05

On This Day: 12/12

Colin Todd was born in Chester-le-Street ON THIS DAY in 1948.

An immensely talented defender he began his career with Sunderland and cost Derby County £170,000 when transferred in 1971.

During his seven years at the Baseball Ground he won two League titles and was named PFA Player of the Year in 1975.

At the age of 29 he was sold to Everton for £300,000 in September 1978, a transaction for which the aggrieved Derby fans never forgave their manager, Tommy Docherty.

Todd brought a calm assurance to an inconsistent side before losing his place after being laid low with a mystery stomach complaint.

After falling out with Gordon Lee he was transferred to Birmingham City for £275,000, exactly one year and three days after moving to Goodison.

He played 35 games for Everton scoring one goal.

Everton beat Southampton 4-1 ON THIS DAY in 1970.

A crowd of 31,139 at Goodison saw the Blues demolish the Saints.

Joe Royle scored twice with the other goals coming from Alan Whittle and John Morrissey.
