PODCAST: Legendary Blues Skipper Details Life After Everton

Every Evertonian knows the Kevin Ratcliffe story… or do they?

We all know that he’s our most successful ever captain and that he won two league titles, an FA Cup and a European Cup Winners’ Cup during his time at Goodison.

And that he is fifth in our all-time appearance list and one of his two goals was a 40-yarder at Anfield against Liverpool!

But what happened to Ratcliffe when he left Goodison Park in the summer of 1992?

We’ve been finding out, with the Welshman's post-Everton story the subject of our latest Official Everton Podcast.

He tells us how he ended up at Dundee and lived above a pub, how he scored on his Cardiff City debut, why he signed for Nottingham Forest, how he played against Liverpool for Derby County reserves - and laughs about the time he paid a water bill to enable a Chester City game to go ahead!

‘Rats’ also reveals the name of the best coach he ever worked with (it’s a former Everton player but you’d probably never guess which one!), discusses how Martin O'Neill helped him sign the great Cyril Regis, and lets us in on what David Moyes said to him after Shrewsbury shocked the Toffees in the FA Cup.
