Some of the Club's most loyal fans had an exclusive chance to say farewell to departing skipper Phil Neville on Tuesday evening.

The 36-year-old is to leave Everton at the end of the season, bringing the curtain down on an eight-year spell on Merseyside.

And despite having already waved goodbye to Goodison following Sunday's emotional win over West Ham, Neville was back at the stadium for an intimate event two days later.

Supporters holding a Season Ticket for the midfielder's eight years or longer were eligible to attend, with forms sent out in advance for fans to request an invite.

Over 200 of the applicants were selected at random to pack out the People's Club lounge as Neville took to the top table alongside Club legend Graeme Sharp.

Media and Publications manager Darren Griffiths compered the evening and quizzed the duo about their respective playing careers.

Later on, the floor was opened up to enable fans to put their own questions to the special guests.

The two-hour gathering also included autograph opportunities, while Neville was presented with a special gift from Cake Shop Liverpool.

A free raffle rounded off the evening, with lucky Blues picking up memorabilia signed by the Everton pair.

The event concluded a series of exclusive Stand Together events which aimed to reward long-term Season Ticket holders.

There will be more events planned for the 2013/14 campaign.
