Stats

In 1913, Everton paid Glasgow Rangers £1,500 to secure the services of stocky centre forward Bobby Parker and it was to prove to be money well spent.

Scoring on his debut, Parker went on to net 17 goals in just 24 games during his first season, topping the scoring charts in 1914/15 as Everton were crowned Champions. His record of 36 goals in just 35 games during the title winning campaign included six hat-tricks and with that remarkable form he was unlucky not to have been capped by Scotland by the time war intervened.

Parker saw action in the First World War and when football resumed four years later he had a bullet still lodged in his back. Unfortunately, Parker’s best days were behind him and as the 1920/21 season ended, one of the most prolific goal scorers in Everton’s history was sold to Nottingham Forest.
