Stats

Sandy Young – no relation to his later namesake – was signed from Falkirk in July 1900 in the hope he would be able to hit the goalscoring heights of former strikers Jack Southworth and Fred Geary.

Young top scored for the club six out of the ten seasons he remained at Goodison – including 28 league goals in 1906/07 to become the First Division’s top scorer.

His goals made him a firm fans favourite and that position was cemented when Young scored the only goal in the 1906 FA Cup final to secure victory for the Blues. He also tasted defeat in an FA Cup final with the Blues a year later.

The forward made a total of 314 appearances for the Toffees, scoring 125 goals in all competitions – a record only better by the great Dixie Dean, Graeme Sharp and Bob Latchford.

Young also made two appearances for Scotland during his time with the Blues before leaving for Tottenham in 1911 and later moving to Australia, where he was bizarrely found guilty of the manslaughter of his brother in 1916.
