Stats

John Bell was signed in April 1893 shortly after Everton had lost the FA Cup Final to Wolves. Bell had been a star of Dumbarton’s Scottish championship winning team in the previous season and he soon established himself as a linchpin of the Everton side too.

Bell played both on the inside right and on the wing during his Everton career making 199 appearances and scoring 70 goals in two spells at the club.

As well as being a goal scorer, Bell was also a brilliant dribbler and provider. He was Everton’s first Scottish International – and this in an era when southern-based Scots were very rarely picked to play.
