Tony Hibbert’s ten years of first team football service to Everton is to be celebrated in a testamonial match on August 8th.
The right back is the sole survivor of David Moyes’ first match in charge of the Toffees ten years ago, and his service to the Royal Blue shirt is to be commemmorated in a friendly match against AEK Athens at Goodison Park in two months time.
A boyhood fan of the Merseyside outfit, Hibbert joined the Blues’ academy during his childhood, and helped the Everton Youth academy side lift the 1998 FA Youth Cup trophy. He then made his first team debut in March 2001 during a 2-0 Premier League win against West Ham, and has gone on to make more than 300 appearances since, including becoming the club’s Record Holder of the most appearances in European competitions for the Toffees.
Everyone here at NSNO would like to congratulate Tony on ten years of service for the cause, and we hope to even see a very, very rare goal from the 31 year old in August!
