2. Tony Hibbert

Tony HibbertDate of Birth: February 20, 1981

Clubs: Everton

Position: Right back

Nationality: English

Finest Everton moment: Captaining Everton against BATE Borisov in the 2010 Europa League campaign, and becoming the player with the most European appearances for the Toffees in the process.

Tony Hibbert is Everton’s longest-serving player and, as already stated, holds the record for the most European appearances of any Everton player. He initially started out as a midfielder but converted to a right back early on in his career. Hibbert is a cult hero, given his roots and the fact he has never managed to score for the club, despite being on the books for ten years. This led to the coining of the phrase ‘Hibbert scores we riot’ which the player himself has even acknowledged in the past. The closest he came to opening his account was in a match against Portsmouth at the end of the 2009/10 campaign, where he fired a shot narrowly over the Gwladys Street goal. Hibbert is known for his tough tackling and no-nonsense approach to defending.
