Friday’s Liverpool Echo
features Everton Chief Executive Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale who has spoken of the “huge responsibility” she feels to “deliver results for the fans”.
The lifelong Blue adds that “having an understanding of what our football club requires and what our fans expect is crucial” in her role. She also emphasises, however that, "it is not enough to be an Evertonian. You have got to be great at your job".
The local read also carries quotes from evertonfc.com from Antonee Robinson, who has spoken of his desire to fight for a place in Marco Silva’s Everton team.
The left-back – who spent last season on loan at Bolton Wanderers and has recently made his first two appearances for the USA – said: “If I go back and do as well as
I have with Bolton and the US, then hopefully I will get a chance. But you are not just handed anything. You have to earn everything you get. I just have to go back and try as hard as I can to do well.”
Following the release of the Premier League fixtures on Thursday – when it was revealed Everton will kick off their season at Wolverhampton Wanderers – the Birmingham Mail
features reaction from former Blues defender Derek Mountfield, who also had a three-year spell with the Midlands club.
Mountfield says the Toffees should expect a “rocking” atmosphere at Molineux but adds: “We are Everton. We have got to go there and be on the front foot.”
