Everton welcome Bournemouth to Goodison Park on Saturday looking to build on Wednesday’s convincing Carabao Cup win over Sunderland.

It will be only the third ever league contest between the two clubs at the Grand Old Lady, with the Blues having won both of the previous encounters in L4.

Last season, Ronald Koeman’s side romped to a 6-3 home victory over Eddie Howe’s men, gaining revenge for a 1-0 reverse at the Vitality Stadium last September - Everton’s only ever defeat against the Cherries in a total of eight meetings.

If you’re heading to Saturday’s game, here’s a few things to look out for…


1995 FA Cup winner Daniel Amokachi will be the very special guest on the FanZone stage in the build-up to kick-off.

The Nigerian will reflect on his two years with the Blues and give his thoughts on the current Everton contingent.

BBC Radio Solent’s Kris Temple will give us the lowdown on Bournemouth and their start to the season, while X-Factor contestant Anthony Russell will also be among the guests on show.

Live music will come from Thomas McConnell, there’s face-painting for younger Blues and we’ll also have all the usual competitions and games with hosts Gav Pettifor and Jennifer Jewell.

Head to the Park End car park and join in the fun from 1pm.


Open from 12pm, the Matchday Hub is the perfect place for young Blues and their families to hang out before the game.

Free Everton in the Community coaching sessions will be available for ages 5-7 at 1pm, 8-10 at 1.30pm and 11+ from 2pm - and there’s a chance to meet Angry Birds favourite and new Blue ‘Red between 12.30pm and 2.30pm, with Angry Birds-themed colouring and craft activities.

A games area, DJ, face painting, craft sessions and picture quiz – with £25 voucher prize – will all add to the entertainment during a busy build up to the afternoon’s football, while you can also brush up on your history by checking out this week’s exhibition from the Everton Heritage Society.

A Hub children’s meal deal offer of chicken nuggets or giant sausage roll with fries and soft drink will be available for only £5.

The adults’ equivalent – steak and ale pie, chips, peas and gravy – will cost just £5.50.


The café, located on Spellow Lane, opens at 12pm and is another great place for families to spend time before the game.

Food available includes sandwiches, chilli, scouse, curry and hot dogs. Tea, coffee, soft drinks and snacks are also available.


St Luke’s Church is closed for this fixture.
