Everton’s gratification for the “incredible” response received across the city region to the Club’s plans for a new stadium at Bramley Moore-Dock and Goodison Park legacy project features in Wednesday’s Liverpool Echo.

The People’s Project second stage consultation was held between 26 July and 25 August, with residents urged to provide their input into the proposals.

“There has been real interest in the plans and a genuine enthusiasm for what we are proposing from across the city and the wider city region," said Everton Chief Executive Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale.

“Everybody’s views, both on the stadium and the community-led regeneration plans for Goodison Park, are vital in helping us to finalise our planning submissions."

The Echo also highlights a report by socio-economic specialists, RealWorth, that estimates The People’s Project could generate £793.4m of societal value between 2024 and 2033.

The local read also features an interview with Richarlison, in which the Brazilian reveals he is taking classes between training sessions to learn English.

And the paper carries quotes from Everton manager Marco Silva, who says he will support Jean-Philippe Gbamin every day as the midfielder recovers from a muscle problem.

“It is up to us to give him all the support we can, not just to recover him as fast as possible,” he said. “But the daily support for him to be optimistic about the situation, even in a tough moment.

“I am 100 per cent involved in the process.”
