Gary Speed Remembered

Former captain in our thoughts on first anniversary of his death.

Gary Speed Remembered

Today marks one year since the tragic death of former Everton captain Gary Speed.

A boyhood Evertonian, the Mancot-born midfielder made 65 appearances for the Blues during an 18-month spell which began with his arrival from first club Leeds United in the summer of 1996.

He went on to amass over 500 Premier League outings, also serving Newcastle United, Bolton Wanderers and Sheffield United, before turning his attention to management with the Blades and later the Welsh national side.

Speed passed away on 27 November 2011, aged just 42.

To mark the anniversary, Everton and its supporters have joined Speed’s former clubs, teammates and colleagues in leaving tribute messages on social networking sites Facebook and Twitter. Below are some of those tributes. Add your message to our Facebook page here.
