The Everton Heritage Society Podcast

The Everton FC Heritage Society was founded by Dr David France OBE in 2008.

Within its ranks are Evertonian authors, collectors and statisticians, and the society primarily exists to promote and preserve the heritage of Everton Football Club.

It also promotes and provides support for The Everton Collection Trust.

And, of course, they are a wonderful and regular host of St Luke’s Church on matchdays. Located next to Goodison Park, the church hall on the first floor is transformed into a treasure trove of Everton memorabilia whenever The Blues are at home.

Visitors can view the exhibitions, visit the stalls and meet members and away supporters find it just as entertaining. Indeed, followers of the opposition teams are often heard to opine, ‘I wish we had something like this at our place!’.

Two of the Heritage Society members, Brendan Connolly and Sarah Deboe, have joined Darren Griffiths for a half hour podcast that explains in much more detail precisely what the society does.

They speak about the importance of preserving the unique history of our club, how important it is to have a matchday presence so close to the stadium and the terrific task of restoring and rededicating the graves of some of the earliest Everton legends.
