Profile
Stats

Derek Mountfield joined the club from Tranmere in 1982 and the lifelong Evertonian got his break when Mark Higgins suffered cruel luck with injuries. It was an opportunity he seized with both hands.

Mountfield formed an impressive defensive partnership with Kevin Ratcliffe and he netted an impressive 10 league goals league during the glorious 1984/85 title-winning campaign. Indeed, the lifelong Evertonian famously scored the 1985 FA Cup semi-final winner against Luton.

He made 148 appearances for the Blues, scoring 24 times but the arrival of Dave Watson in 1986 saw him lose his place in the Everton side and he eventually left for Aston Villa in the summer of 1988.
