Saturday's matchday festivities are centred around Junior Fans' Day, with plenty in store for the next generation of Evertonians.

To coincide with the focus on young Blues, the official Everton Twitter account asked for your first Goodison Park memories.

Four lucky fans who responded to the tweet won tickets to the Norwich fixture thanks to Thomas Cook Sport and have since been contacted.

Below are some of your replies…
