My Goodison Memories: Francis Jeffers

Welcome, Marco!

Everything you need to know about the new boss here.

This Saturday, 2 September, marks the 125th anniversary of Everton’s first ever game at Goodison Park. 

An estimated crowd of 12,000 turned up to see the Blues run out 4-2 winners against Bolton Wanderers, thanks to goals from Fred Geary, Alex Latta, Edgar Chadwick and Dickie Boyle.  

To celebrate the landmark, we will be asking players both current and former to tell us their favourite Goodison memories, with the series set to continue throughout the season. 

‘Super’ Kev Campbell, Graeme Sharp and Yannick Bolasie have already told us why they love the Grand Old Lady, and today it's the turn of Francis Jeffers, a man who grew up a stone's throw from the stadium, on Goodison Road.

Watch Franny's recollections above.
