On This Day: 20/01
Jack Cock made his Everton debut ON THIS DAY in 1923 scoring once in a 4-0 win over Stoke City.
The gifted centre-forward began his career with Brentford and then Huddersfield Town before the outbreak of the First World War, during which he was mistakenly reported to have been killed.
Very much alive, he resumed his career with Chelsea and was transferred to Everton in January 1923, remaining at Goodison until March 1925 when he joined Plymouth.
He later appeared in numerous films.
During his Everton career he made 72 appearances and scored 31 goals. He won two England caps whilst on the books of Huddersfield and Chelsea.
Everton beat Manchester City 2-0 ON THIS DAY in 1988.
Adrian Heath and Graeme Sharp scored either side of the half-time break to seal the result.
The win secured the Blues' place in the semi-finals of the Littlewoods Cup to face Arsenal over two legs.
