On This Day: 29/04

Everton beat Oldham Athletic 4-0 ON THIS DAY in 1954.

The win in the Second Division match meant that The Blues gained promotion to the top flight where they have stayed for the past 50 years.

Thousands of Evertonians crammed into Boundary Park to witness the match, with thousands of others outside.

Everton played Oldham knowing that if they could win by six clear goals they would be promoted as champions and with a 4-0 scoreline at half time they were well on their way to achieving that feat.

The first goal came after seven minutes when John Willie Parker headed home from a Dave Hickson flick-on.

Tommy E Jones grabbed Everton's second. His 55-yard boot up the pitch was missed by the Oldham ‘keeper, who was under pressure from Hickson, and flew into the net.

Parker scored his second when the unlucky Oldham goalie dropped a shot from Wally Fielding, before Hickson scored the fourth with a mazy dribble and shot.

The Latics managed to keep the Blues at bay in the second half but the result meant that Everton were still promoted – much to the delight of the travelling fans.
