Stats

Cliff Britton signed for Everton in June 1930 from Bristol Rovers but the right-half was forced to wait until 1932/33 before establishing himself as a first-team regular.

Once given the chance, he became a regular fixture in the side and went on to make 242 appearances in a royal blue jersey, scoring three goals in the process.

He was known as a leader on the pitch who was always wanting the ball and always looking to drive the team forward with his exceptional passing ability.

Britton picked up an FA Cup winners medal in 1933 after being part of the side that beat Manchester City 3-0 in the final.

However, he only managed to make one appearance in 1938/39 when the Blues’ lifted the league title.

The former Bristol Rovers player picked up nine England caps while with Everton, making his debut against Wales in September 1934.

Britton later returned to Everton as a manager in September 1948, overseeing relegation in 1950/51 and then promotion in 1953/54 before being sacked in February 1956.
