All eyes were on Leighton Baines in Southport on Tuesday night as the England international was the latest first-team player to participate in Everton's supporters' clubs tour.

An Everton contingent, comprising of Baines, Graeme Sharp, kit manager Jimmy Martin and media and publications manager Darren Griffiths called into The Mount to meet the Southport Blues.

The sixty-strong group of supporters enjoyed a Q & A session with the Everton left-back, before he happily signed autographs and posed for photographs.

The Blues' leading post-war goalscorer then took centre stage with Jimmy to field all manner of questions.

Jimmy explained how he started at Everton as a coach driver some 30 years ago before progressing through to his current position and Sharpy reminisced about the long journeys in the 1980s with the current kit manager behind the wheel!

Jimmy revealed some behind-the-scenes tales from the training ground and Sharpy offered his usual forthright views on the current campaign.

A thoroughly entertaining evening culminated with a raffle, with one lucky recipient walking away with a squad-signed Everton football.
