On This Day: 20/11
Dave Watson was born in Liverpool ON THIS DAY in 1961.
He first signed professional forms with Liverpool in 1979 but was sold to Norwich City in 1979 for £100,000 without having played for the first team.
After helping the Canaries to the League Cup in 1985 he returned to Merseyside in 1986, costing Everton £900,000.
Waggy won a place in the hearts of the Everton faithful with his raw courage and never-say-die attitude. He was appointed club captain in January 1992, succeeding Kevin Ratcliffe.
During his playing days at Everton he made over 476 appearances and scored 34 goals.
Watson collected a League Championship medal in 1987, an FA Cup winners' medal in 1995 and two FA Charity Shield medals as well as 12 caps for England.
In 1997 he was appointed caretaker manager following the departure of Joe Royle.
Watson retired from playing in 2000 before having a short stint as manager of Tranmere Rovers in the 2001/02 season.
He is now working for Everton helping to develop the club's links with China.
