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.

Lyons was named as an Everton Giant at the Club's 10th Annual End of Season Awards in May 2015.
