The Howard Kendall Award
The Howard Kendall Award was presented for the first time this year.
Named in honour of the greatest manager in the club's history, it is aimed at rewarding individuals or teams from the club's illustrious past.
And it was fitting that, so soon after the sad death of Brian Labone, the inaugural winners of the trophy was the 1966 FA Cup winning side.
The Blues came back from 2-0 down to defeat Sheffield Wednesday 3-2.
From that team, which was skippered by Brian Labone, to receive the award was Gordon West, match-winner Derek Temple and full-back Ray Wilson.
Recalling that famous game, in which Mike Trebilcock netted twice before Temple scored the winner, Wilson said: "If it had stayed 1-0 we probably would have had to defend a little more. But it was funny that when it went to 2-0 it released us and we had to attack."
West added: "Right through that Cup run I didn't concede a goal and then in the final I conceded two of the worst goals you could imagine. But we came back. And I would like to say it is a great pleasure to have been an Evertonian."
Temple added: "It was a great occasion. They always say that cometh the hour, cometh the man. And that day the man was Mike Trebilcock. That was a great day that has added to the great traditions of a great football club."
