Profile
Stats
Mick Lyons made his first-team debut against Nottingham Forest in 1971 and went on to become an Everton hero.

A defender by trade, he would regularly be pushed forward for the final 10 minutes of games when the Blues were in search of a goal.

It allowed him to score 59 times during his 473 appearance for the Club, a large number of which were spent as Club captain.

Once quoted as saying he would "run through a brick wall for Everton", those words epitomised the attitude of a player who led by example and was unfortunate to finish his career without amassing any major honours.

Lyons left Goodison Park in 1982 to join Sheffield Wednesday and also had a spell as player-manager at Grimsby Town.

After leaving Grimsby, he later coached in Brunei and Australia.
