PODCAST: Beloved Evertonian Darracott On His Life In Football

Terry Darracott was an Evertonian.

He loved the Club and served it with distinction, over 18 years in total, as a youth, reserve and then first team player before returning as a coach.

Sadly, he passed away on 22 March 2022, at the age of 71, just a few short weeks after recording a podcast for evertonfc.com.

Terry’s interview was to be a part of a forthcoming series featuring ‘Sons of the 70s’, but we feel that now is the right time to share his recollections with his fellow Evertonians.

During his conversation, Terry speaks about learning to play football under the lights of a Liverpool tenement building, joining Everton as a teenager, getting two buses to Goodison for his senior debut against Arsenal, fighting for his place under a succession of managers, his time in the States with Tulsa Roughnecks and his subsequent coaching and scouting career.

It’s a thoroughly engaging chat with a man who simply loved Everton Football Club.

Terry kept his enthusiasm for football, and for life, right until the very end, and his honestly, humility and humour come through in this podcast.
