On This Day: 15/10

Everton played their first game in the FA Cup ON THIS DAY in 1887.

The Blues lost 1-0 to Bolton Wanderers at Burnden Park.

They had entered the tournament the year before and were drawn against Glasgow Rangers but before the game could be played Rangers were scratched from the competition.

Although Bolton won this FA Cup tie it was discovered that their centre-forward Struthers was ineligible and Everton lodged a successful appeal to have the game replayed.

After two draws Everton won the third replay 2-1.

Bolton lodged an appeal after the match saying that Everton had fielded seven ineligible players.

The Blues were suspended for one month and were removed from the competition.


Jimmy Husband was born in Newcastle ON THIS DAY in 1947.

The tricky winger joined the Blues as an apprentice and made his first team debut as a 17-year-old against Fulham in April 1965.

A member of the side that won the League in 1970 he scored 55 goals in 197 appearances for the Blues.

He left Everton in November 1973 to join Fulham where he finished his career.
