To get in the spirit of retro day, the official Everton programme has taken a step back to yesteryear for this weekend's visit of Hull City.

As well as a cover in the style of those from the 1969/70 title-winning campaign, the latest edition will also carry a reproduction of the programme from an Alan Ball-inspired victory over Derby County in the December of that season, plus your photos from years and decades gone by.

And from the old to the new, Gareth Barry is the main player interview – an exclusive read in which the midfielder thanks Evertonians for making him feel so welcome in his new home.

“It’s really nice to hear the fans appreciating me and I’m very thankful for their support," the loanee says. "For me that’s part of new signings coming in and getting positive results. My aim is to continue this form and hopefully the results and the backing of the fans will carry along with it.

“Everton fans look at the game in a different way and it’s great to hear that they have liked what they have seen and appreciate the job that you’re doing."

There will also be a unique retro look to the regular columns written by manager Roberto Martinez and captain Phil Jagielka, an exclusive chat with former Blue Danny Cadamarteri and, as ever, readers will also be able to catch up with the latest from the Under-21s, Under-18s and Ladies teams.

Don’t miss out on all this and lots, lots more. The retro-look Everton programme will be available from Everton One and Everton Two from Friday or from various locations at Goodison Park on match day.

The programme is just one part of Saturday's retro day. To find out what else we're doing for the visit of the Tigers, click here.
