Everton officials have praised supporters who made the journey to Split for the Europa League play-off second leg this week.
Over 1,300 fans made the 3,000-mile round trip to watch the 1-1 draw with Hajduk Split which secured a 3-1 aggregate win.
Everton held a number of meetings with authorities in the Croatian city before issuing advice to travelling Blues to ensure all fans remained safe while in Split. 

The majority of travelling Evertonians attended the Fan Zone before the game and took advantage of the free coach travel to the stadium.

David Lewis, Head of Security at Everton said: “I’d like to thank the travelling Evertonians for their behaviour yesterday - before, during and after the game.  
“Local authorities had made it clear that any anti-social behaviour would be dealt with robustly and there was a heavy police presence in the city. The vast majority of supporters heeded the advice given to them by the Club and hopefully enjoyed their visit to Split and remained safe.
“The game was watched by a worldwide audience and the travelling support once again showed to that viewing audience why the Club is so proud of its fans. We look forward to the continuing support throughout our domestic season and in the Europa League.”
