The July Evertonian is out Friday and there was only one man – or ‘Kid’ should we say – that could feature on the cover.
The Club was rocked by the sad news of the passing of the ‘Cannonball Kid’ Dave Hickson recently and the Blues’ official magazine pays a warm tribute to one of our true greats.
With messages from former team-mates, current first team players and those that watched him play, the life and career of a popular figure around Goodison Park is captured in a special eight-page look at the Everton Giant's best moments.
Elsewhere, the Evertonian managed to grab quick chats with our new signings Arouna Kone, Antolin Alcaraz and Joel Robles. With the capture of exciting Spanish forward Gerard Deulofeu going through just after our deadline, Roberto Martinez has certainly been busy adding to his squad, and he also spoke to the magazine about how pleased he was to have signed three players he knows well.
One man who recognises it's all change at his beloved Blues is midfielder Leon Osman. He dropped into Finch Farm earlier than some of his team-mates and chatted about how he spent his off-season.
As if all that wasn’t enough, there’s Andy Gray, Everton Ladies’ Vicky Jones, Alan Stubbs and Conor McAleny thrown in for good measure. It promises to be an issue not to be missed.
