The People's Club Award

The People's Club Award

One of the most emotional parts of the evening came with the announcement of The People's Club award.

Everton lost one of its finest sons just a few weeks prior to the dinner - and it was he who was named as the recipient of The People's Club prize.

The People's Club award was voted for by a panel of former Everton players.

Sadly, just as with the inaugural People's Club Award, the decision was straightforward. Brian Labone was the first posthumous recipient of the accolade.

Almost exactly a year to the day after Brian's untimely death the world said farewell to Alan Ball.

A firebrand player widely regarded as second only to Dixie Dean in terms of Everton Greats, Bally is a worthy recipient of a prize that pays tribute to a great Evertonian - an individual who represents everything that is special about Everton Football Club.

You have to be more than just a great player to receive The People's Club award, you have to represent the Nil Satis Nisi Optimum ethos. Alan Ball was the personification of that motto.

Peter Reid made the announcement of the award winner and told evertonTV: "This is a celebration of Alan. He was a great man and represented everything that is special about Everton.

"Everton is a class club - and Alan was a class player and a classy man."
