The Howard Kendall Award
The Howard Kendall award was inaugurated last year and aims to reward individuals or teams from Everton's great past.
This year, the award went to the Championship winning side from the 1986/7 season.
That title win was all the sweeter in that it denied Liverpool the title.
The Toffees were unfancied in the league after the departure of Gary Lineker, but displayed tremendous team spirit throughout to battle past all setbacks and claim the Championship.
Players such as Graeme Sharp, Gary Stevens, Kevin Ratcliffe and Trevor Steven were instrumental in the triumph and many of the '87 squad were on hand to accept the award from current stars Joseph Yobo and Mikel Arteta.
Colin Harvey, assistant manager at the time, was full of praise of for his charges, while Kevin Ratcliffe reflected on the team ethic that was so prevalent in the side.
"They are a fantastic team and a great bunch of lads," said Harvey.
"We look back and there were no stars in the side," added Ratcliffe. "If you were out of line the lads would tell eachother and I think that is one of the reasons we were so successful."
