Everton captain Phil Jagielka has paid tribute to Dave Hickson.
 
“Dave was always a friendly face at Goodison Park and he loved watching the team,” he said.
 
“There are many people who knew him better than me but he would come into the dressing room after games to take our Man of the Match into the lounges and he loved being amongst the lads.
 
“He was clearly an immensely popular person with everyone at Goodison and the supporters idolised him. He was a legend and always will be.
 
“On behalf of all the players at Everton I’d like to send our sympathy to the family. It’s a desperately sad time for all of us here at the club but even more so for his family.”
 
A number of Dave's former teammates and friends have also been recalling their memories of the Everton Giant.

Derek Temple said: "I was Dave's inside-forward and he was a very, very good footballer. I got a few goals as his partner as he would take the knocks for me to score the goals. He'll be sadly missed."

John Sutherland paid this tribute: "Dave was a very good player, he always got stuck in and was a trier who never gave up. Everton always meant so much to him."

Kenny Birch, another teammate, said: "He was a gentle giant. He could play football with the best of them and he could play the rough stuff if it needed to be played. He will be greatly missed."

Jimmy Harris, who took over from Dave when he first left the club, recalled: "Dave was the centre-forward I took over from and when he came back I moved to the wing. We struck up a good playing relationship. He was a head down very strong very direct sort of player."

Robert HenonWhy do I feel, that the Ever, has been taken from our name?...... rip Dave, and thanks for the memories.
