On This Day: 20/06

Everton legend Peter Reid was born ON THIS DAY in 1956.

Peter was born in Huyton and made his debut for Bolton Wanderers at the age of 18. Gordon Lee had tried to sign ‘Reidy' for £600,000 in 1980, but the move was shelved after the midfielder developed a series of injuries.

Two and a half years later, Howard Kendall bought the Scouser home, for just £60,000. Reid was instrumental in the turnaround of the 1983/84 season and went on to make 222 appearances for the Blues, scoring 13 times. During his time at Everton, he won 13 England caps and performed well in Mexico '86.

The 1985 PFA Player of the Year left Everton to join QPR in 1989 and went on to play for Manchester City, Southampton, Notts County and Bury, before embarking on a career in management.

Also Everton winger Robert Warzycha was born ON THIS DAY in 1963.

‘Wazza' or ‘Bob the Pole' exploded onto the Goodison scene after his £500,000 move from Gornik Zabrze in March 1991. He made 35 appearances for Everton, scoring five times before being released in 1994 to return to his native Poland.
