Legends Explore Bangkok


Everton legends Graeme Sharp, Ian Snodin and Graham Stuart arrived in Bangkok ahead of the first-team squad – and they wasted no time getting acquainted with their host city.

The trio headed out into the humid Thai heat at 7am on Friday morning to do some sight-seeing.

The Everton representatives began their tour at the Ministry of Defence where they observed the sounding of the national anthem and the daily ritual of the raising of the Thai flag, upon which members of the Thai population stand to show respect for their country.

From the Ministry of Defence, Sharp, Snodin and Stuart made their way to Saranrom Park where they got to show off their ping pong skills when they were recognised by members of a table tennis club who challenged them to a game.

The trio were then spotted by a local runners who invited them to join their group for refreshments and lots of photographs.

After their time in Saranrom Park, the former Blues took a short walk to Wat Pho, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, to look around the highly impressive gold plated statue which measures 46 metres long and 15 metres high.

Journeying by tuk tuk, the legends then made their way to their final sight-seeing destination, the Grand Palace, where they visited the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, as well as the royal residence and throne halls.

Covering an area of 218,400 square metres, the Grand Palace sits in the heart of Bangkok and was established as the official residence in 1782 where the King, his court and his royal government were based until 1925.

Sharp, Snodin and Stuart then travelled back to the team hotel to welcome Roberto Martinez and his first-team squad to Thailand, along with a gathering of Thai Evertonians.
