On This Day: 16/10

Graeme Sharp was born in Glasgow ON THIS DAY in 1960.

He signed from Dumbarton in 1980 for £120,000 going on to become a feared striker during his time at the club.

The steely Scot helped the Blues win the FA Cup in 1984, two League titles and the European Cup-Winners' Cup.

In 432 appearances he scored 150 goals making him Everton's top post-war goalscorer.

He left Everton to join Oldham in 1991 and went on to manage Oldham and Bangor City – winning them the Welsh Cup in 1998.

The Everton Legend still works for his beloved Blues in the capacity of Fans' Liaison Officer.

As well as Jimmy Gabriel, 1940, and Geoff Barnett, 1946, David Unsworth was born ON THIS DAY in 1973.

The defender, from Chorley, developed through the ranks at Everton and became a full professional in 1992.

He was a member of the FA Cup winning team in 1995 and won his first and, so far, only England cap against Japan in the same year.

Unsworth joined West Ham in 1997 but a year later joined Aston Villa.

Less than a week after joining Villa he announced he was homesick for Merseyside and re-joined Everton for £3 million.

A hardworking and influential player, whose commitment to the Royal Blue could can never be questioned, he is also the club's most successful penalty taker.

David left the club and signed for Portsmouth in the summer of 2004.
