The match programme for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Stoke City is now on sale.

Fresh from a heroic emergency left-back display in the Merseyside derby, Gareth Barry tells us how he was happy to adapt and help out in an atmosphere he describes as one of the best he’s ever played in.

Our former player interview is with goalkeeper Fred Barber, who signed for Everton as cover for Neville Southall from Darlington in 1986. Fred is one of the genuine characters of the game and he tells us just how much he loved being at Goodison Park.

The programme also carries some fantastic imagery from that amazing 3-3 draw with Liverpool – including a terrific shot of Kevin Mirallas’ goal taken from a unique angle in the Park End.

The ever-popular kids section takes a look at events that have occurred on Steven Naismith’s birthday, gives you some facts and figures about Seamus Coleman’s home nation and features a superb middle-page poster of James McCarthy.

We also feature a fun-filled Thai Cookery lesson that Tim Howard recently enjoyed at Goodison Park, we hear from Alan Stubbs and Kevin Sheedy on the great starts to the season for the Under-21s and Under-18s, we print your tweets and photographs, and Steve Simonsen picks his Best XI from his teammates at both Everton and Saturday's opponents.

Roberto Martinez reviews the derby, Phil Jagielka assesses our weekend opponents and there’s also the usual classic pictures and half-time quiz.

The match programme is the most traditional and popular souvenir of a Goodison Park match-day. Get yours today - just £3!
