On This Day: 31/07
Everton signed Alan Biley ON THIS DAY 1981.
Howard Kendall made the striker his first signing when he was bought from Derby County for Â£300,000.
Evertonians nicknamed him Ã¢â‚¬ËœSpike' due to his Rod Stewart-esque hairstyle, but despite scoring two goals in his first two matches for the Blues a goal drought followed which resulted in him joining Portsmouth just 13 months after his arrival on Merseyside.
In his Everton career he made 21 appearances and scored three goals.
