A group of loyal Evertonians were treated to an evening with Blues right-back Seamus Coleman on Tuesday as the latest in a series of special ‘Stand Together’ events took place at Goodison Park.

The Republic of Ireland international was joined at the event, held for Season Ticket holders, by Club legend Graeme Sharp and former captain and current Everton coach David Weir.

The trio signed autographs and posed for pictures with fans in between taking questions from the audience.

Beforehand, Sharp had met the supporters in Everton One, where the Blues' leading post-war goalscorer signed merchandise and chatted to fans in-store.

Following the announcement on Tuesday morning of Phil Neville’s imminent departure from Goodison Park, former-Sligo Rovers man Coleman paid a glowing tribute to the Club captain, recalling how star-struck he felt when meeting Neville, plus highlighting all the encouragement he has received from the 36-year-old skipper.

Sharp and Weir traded memories of their time at the Club, as well as taking questions from the floor on all manner of topics, ranging from new investment to the current state of Scottish football.

There was also complimentary Chang beer, Crabbie's Ginger beer and pies, with the evening culminating in a free raffle of prizes signed by the star-studded panel.
