Everton Giant 2005

Signed as an unknown from Dumbarton for a fee of £120,000 in April 1980, Graeme Sharp went on to spend more than a decade as the club's leading striker - with only Dixie Dean netting more goals for the club in Everton's history.

Sharp hit top form with the arrival of Andy Gray in November 1983. Under the tutelage of his fellow Scot, Sharp was able to mature into a key player in Howard Kendall's side.

In the 1984 FA Cup final against Watford he left the Hornets' fans singing the Blues by netting the first goal in a 2-0 win and the next season there was no stopping him as he put his name on the scoresheet 30 times in 54 games.

His rise at Everton was recognised by Scotland manager Jock Stein who gave him his international debut in a World Cup qualifier against Iceland in 1985.

Despite the attentions of clubs in Italy, Sharp stayed at Goodison and formed a successful partnership with Gary Lineker in the 'nearly' season of 1985/86, registering 30 goals.

His goalscoring record was from the top drawer throughout his Everton career, bringing 150 goals during 11 glorious seasons with the Toffees, which ended with a move to Oldham in 1991.
