Two hundred Evertonians packed into a Sydney hotel function room to meet the Everton squad on Tuesday evening.

The event was organised by the Everton Supporters' Club Australia and featured a Q&A and a signing session.

First David Moyes, Phil Neville, Leon Osman, Phil Jagielka, Victor Anichebe, Jack Rodwell and Diniyar Bilyaletdinov were individually interviewed by MC for the evening Darren Griffiths, who is the Club's media and publications officer.

Fans packed in to see the Blues

The players spoke on a number of subjects, including the tough pre-season training, the celebrity of Tim Cahill, the 2009 FA Cup semi-final and Jags' video game skills!

There was regular applause but nothing could match the standing ovation afforded to the manager when he stood up for his interview.

After that, the players switched and Tony Hibbert, Mikel Arteta, Seamus Coleman, Carlo Nash, James Vaughan, Iain Turner, Jose Baxter and Joao Silva headed towards the top table for a signing session.

Table-by-table the Toffees brought up their photos, shirts and other assorted items with the Everton boys freely signing away.

Even better was the fact that the event also raised over AUS$1000 for the Tim Cahill Cancer Fund.
