Theo Walcott tells Saturday’s edition of the matchday programme that his vow to take Everton to the next level has only strengthened as his first season with the Blues draws to an end.
The January recruit declared upon penning his deal at Goodison Park that he “wanted to be part of something” and his exclusive interview in the issue reveals why that desire is a strong as ever.
Joining the pacy wideman in the programme is Idrissa Gana Gueye. The combative midfielder recently signed a new five-year deal to commit his long-term future with the Toffees and, now that confidence is starting to flow throughout the squad, he is looking forward to enjoying some exciting times with the Blues.
There is the usual insight from inside the manager’s office and the dressing room from Sam Allardyce and Phil Jagielka respectively ahead of Saturday’s clash with Southampton, while former defender-turned-pundit and ex-Saint Danny Higginbotham gives the lowdown on the challenge facing Everton at Goodison Park this weekend.
David Unsworth looks back on a transitional season for his Under-23s, Paul Tait assesses how his Under-18s have fared in recent weeks and Angharad James admits her recent Player of the Season award win at The Dixies came as a surprise.
And finally, Tomasz Radzinski is the former player interview, recalling being the other Everton scorer the day Wayne Rooney announced himself to the world, his regret at leaving Goodison – and his late double against Southampton in 2003.
