Stats

Imposing centre-half Roger Kenyon joined Everton in 1966 with the unenviable task of replacing Brian Labone at the heart of Everton’s defence.

He went on to make 291 starts, netting on nine occasions during a 13-year spell with the Blues.

Kenyon was part of the FA Cup final squad who lost out 1-0 to West Brom in 1968, but enjoyed better fortunes two years later when he helped the Toffees clinch the league title.

The Blackpool-born defender also came within touching distance of the League Cup in 1977, but his own goal in the first replay ensured the game went to another replay where the Blues eventually lost out 3-2 to Aston Villa.

Kenyon crossed the Atlantic in the latter stages of his career – making more than 50 appearances for the Vancouver White Caps either side of a brief spell with Bristol City.
