Stats

Fred Geary joined from Grimsby Town in 1889 and scored twice on his Football League debut in a 3-2 victory over Blackburn Rovers.

Leading the forward line with a distinctly robust style, Geary netted 20 goals in Everton’s League Championship winning campaign of 1890-91.

He was described as small and powerful, standing at barely 5ft 2in and he relied on his pace and acceleration to get away from defenders.

Geary was called up to the England squad to play Ireland in 1890 and he scored a hat-trick in a 9-1 victory.

The forward made 98 appearances for the Blues, scoring 86 goals before signing for Liverpool.
