Stats
Johnny Morrissey became only the fourth player in history to make the journey from Anfield to Goodison Park in August 1962.

Blues boss Harry Catterick swooped for the outside-left and he quickly settled into life at Everton by scoring seven league goals as the Blues sealed the First Division title.

The wideman was highly regarded among Evertonians for his blistering pace, powerful shooting and tough-tackling at a time where players in his position were not necessarily renowned for being physical.

After falling down the pecking order in the next three seasons, Morrissey regained a regular starting berth by the 1966/67 campaign.

He picked up an FA Cup runners-up medal after the final loss to West Bromwich Albion in 1968 and then went on to be part of a second league championship-winning side in 1969/70.

Liverpool-born Morrissey scored 50 goals in 314 games for the Toffees before joining Oldham Athletic for a short spell before retiring.
