The People's Club Award
The People's Club award was voted for by readers of the Liverpool Echo.
But the decision as to who would receive this inaugural award for a great Evertonian was straightforward and virtually unanimous.
Brian Labone, the man who skippered the Blues to FA Cup glory in 1966 as well as two league championships, was awarded the title posthumously following his tragic and untimely death.
Everton President Sir Philip Carter made the presentation of the award to Derek Temple, the scorer of the winning goal in 1966, on behalf of Brian's family.
Sir Philip said: "Brian had 15 great years with this club before being forced to retire with an Achilles problem.
"He was a man who always conducted himself with such dignity as a player and he did so after his retirement."
Temple said: "It is a very sad occasion because I wish Brian could have been able to pick this award up himself.
"It is a great privilege to be collecting it on his behalf. He was a very warm man and he was remarkable in that whoever met him never forgot him. He loved life, he loved this football club and he will be greatly missed by everybody. He was a tremendous character who loved Everton and would never hear a bad word said about the club or anybody associated with the club."
