The Everton squad paid their annual visit to Alder Hey children's hospital on Monday afternoon.

The players were accompanied by manager David Moyes and assistant boss Steve Round as they passed on gifts and best wishes to patients and their families, some of whom will be confined to the hospital over Christmas.

The world famous Alder Hey hospital cares for 200,000 children each year and has forged strong links with Everton over the last few years.

Skipper Phil Neville was more than happy to spread some festive cheer.

He told evertontv: "This is one of the most important days of the year for us. As players we are in a privileged position and it is humbling to come here and try to make a little bit of a difference.

"The work they do at Alder Hey is magnificent and the least we could do was come and give out some presents and meet some of the youngsters who are unfortunate enough to be in here."

After the hospital visit, Steven Naismith and Seamus Coleman headed to Claire House children's hospice in Wirral, while the rest of the squad attended the FOREVERTON junior Christmas party.

There they met with around 100 junior Evertonians, posing for photos and signing autographs in the first team dressing room.
