Everton’s announcement of a public consultation into the Bramley-Moore Dock Stadium project features across Thursday’s local and national newspapers.

The consultation will ask members of the public for their views on Bramley-Moore Dock as the proposed site for the new stadium, as well as seeking opinion on the Club’s intention to leave a legacy at Goodison Park.

The Liverpool Echo reports the announcement marks “a major step forward” in the stadium project.

Everton Chief Executive Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale is quoted in the local read, as well as the Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph.

“This consultation marks a very significant moment as we progress with this project,” she said. “We would like as many people as possible – and not just football fans – to take part and let us know their views.”

Meanwhile, the Echo also features Blues winger Theo Walcott, who explained his optimism about the Blues’ future under Marco Silva.

“The boss has been fantastic,” he said. “We're only just touching the surface at the moment and we can look forward to the future, it's looking very good.”

Silva is also quoted in the Echo, as he reflects on the Everton in the Community showcase held at USM Finch Farm on Wednesday.

The Portuguese – along with Director of Football Marcel Brands and the entire full first-team squad – pledged their ongoing support to the charity and its work by signing a commitment pledge at the event.

“From the first day I was here, I felt this club was a family,” said Silva. “It is really impressive how our club can support our community. It is a pleasure for the staff and players to be part of this afternoon.”
