Former midfielder Keith Southern talks about his time as a trainee at Everton, playing alongside a young Seamus Coleman at Blackpool, and returning to the Blues as an Academy coach on the latest episode of The Everton Podcast.
The 36-year-old explains how his days as a Toffees trainee were “the best” of his life, and discusses the hardship of realising he would need to leave Goodison Park to carve out a career in the game he loves.
He also talks about helping Blackpool from the old Division Two to the Premier League and achieving promotion to the top-flight alongside "lovely lad" Coleman.
