Tim Cahill has been named Everton's Player of the Month for October, after helping the Blues remain unbeaten throughout the month which included a memorable derby win over Liverpool at Goodison Park.
Cahill netted against the Reds and has helped the Blues to their first league win over Birmingham City with a late goal in a 2-0 success.
The midfielder received his award at Liverpool’s Hilton Hotel from Mark Ryder of TW Steel, the event's main sponsor.
The lunch was attended by prominent Merseyside business figures, along with Everton legends Joe Royle, Graham Stuart, Ronnie Goodlass and Duncan McKenzie and Cahill signed autographs and posed for pictures with his adoring fans.
The Aussie told evertontv that he was delighted to win the award after a good month's work.
"It's fantastic, the most important thing is that we've maintained a good run of form after a poor start to the season," said Cahill.
"It's always great to be recognised but most of all it's always great to get points on the board."
Cahill says the goals against Birmingham and Liverpool were important for different reasons but revealed he relishes every goal that he scores for the club.
"I find all the goals I score important. Those goals were fantastic because we were going through a difficult patch and Birmingham was actually our first win of the season," he said.
"One of the most memorable goals with have to be Liverpool because of what it means to myself and the supporters."
