Stats

David Unsworth joined the Blues as a schoolboy and was a key member of the side that won the FA Cup in 1995.

He left in the summer of 1997 to join Harry Redknapp's West Ham United in a deal that saw, the soon to be forgotten, Danny Williamson arrive at Goodison.

After a successful season in East London and a brief dalliance with Aston Villa, David returned to Merseyside at the request of Walter Smith in a £3 million deal.

A free-scoring defender, his prowess in front of goal was so much that at one stage during the 1999/2000 season he was challenging Kevin Campbell for the top scorer spot!

David's performances were rejuvenated with the arrival of David Moyes, indeed Unsworth scored the first goal of the new manager's reign...after just 27 seconds against Fulham!

'Unsy' was granted a testimonial by the Everton Board in August 2002 and welcomed Athletic Bilbao to Goodison for the game. He holds the accolade of being the Club's most successful penalty taker.

Unsworth joined Portsmouth in July 2004 on a free transfer before spells at Sheffield United and Wigan Athletic.

He will fondly be remembered at the JJB for scoring the goal which kept Wigan in the Premiership on the final day of the 2006/07 season yet soon after he was released.

In August 2007, Unsworth joined Championship outfit Burnley on a 12-month contract before moving into coaching.

He returned to Everton in 2013, initially to support Alan Stubbs in his role as Under-21s boss before taking that position himself when Stubbs moved to Hibernian to become manager in the summer of 2014.
