Kevin joined Everton from Turkish league side Trabzonspor in March 1999 and proved to be an instant and massive success by scoring nine goals in eight starts, which went a long way towards helping the Blues avoid a relegation nightmare.
Walter Smith secured the permanent services of the former Arsenal and Nottingham Forest striker in the summer of 1999 and he has since proved more than his worth.
A former England Under-21 international, Kevin is a quick, strong, versatile forward who became the first black player to captain Everton in January 2001.
He formed a hugely successful partnership with Francis Jeffers early in his Everton career and his performances alongside Duncan Ferguson, Tomasz Radzinski and Wayne Rooney have been just as effective.
In Spring 2001 Kevin decided to prolong his stay at Everton by putting pen-to-paper on a deal that will keep him on Merseyside until 2005.
In the 2002/03 campaign, Campbell finished as the club's highest goalscorer, netting on 12 occasions.
He celebrated his 50th goal in Everton colours on 11 May 2003, with a header past Manchester United's Roy Carroll.
On 1 January 2004 he made his 500th senior appearance in English football when he came on as a substitute against Arsenal.
The striker's Goodison career ended a year later when he moved to West Brom on a free transfer and 18 months later Campbell joined Championship outfit Cardiff City.
