Ratcliffe To Make Draw

by Adam Clark @efc_adamclark

Everton's FA Cup fate could lie in the hands of Club legend Kevin Ratcliffe, with the 1984 Cup-winning captain set to make the draw for this season's fifth round on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues overcame Championship outfit Bolton Wanderers in dramatic fashion on Saturday to book their place in the competition's last 16.

Everton will be ball number 16.

Ratcliffe, who led the Blues to victory in the competition 29 years ago, will be joined at Wembley for the draw by Nigel Jemson, the scorer of a brace when Shrewsbury, managed by Ratcliffe, famously inflicted a third round defeat on the Toffees in January 2003.  

The draw will take place live on ITV1 following the game between Oldham Athletic and Liverpool, with the first tie set to be pulled from the hat at around 5.45pm.

The fifth round matches will be played on the weekend of 16 and 17 February.
