What went on at Everton’s “Behind Closed Doors” event? NSNO went to find out…
On Tuesday evening, August 16, Everton FC held a “Behind Closed Doors” event at the Everton One store.
A plethora of Evertonians were invited to the event. Glorious sunshine on the journey down had put all in an upbeat mood, but just what were all the blue family in store for?
After standing in line outside, we were all ushered inside, which had been decked out like one of those strange nightclubs that pop up in the city centre every now and then. Music on, drinks and food provided, it was nice.
Jennifer Jewell stepped up to begin proceedings, and she announced we had all been gathered for the unveiling of the new 3rd kit.
Whilst we waited, the music played and it still had a feeling of the opening of a nightclub.
Jennifer returned to announce we had five minutes to wait that’s when we went live on Facebook, which you can view here https://www.facebook.com/nilsatis/videos/10154320308338950/
Ashley Williams and Idrissa Gueye were in good spirits, and a little Q&A was the order of the day.
There was a lot of humour from both of the players, with Idrissa Gueye being the highlight of the segment.
The Q&A led on to a quiz for fans that had volunteered to take part, and those taking part were split into teams. A team for Williams, the other for Gueye, with the winners (Williams team) all winning a 3rd team strip.
The strip, which is luminous yellow with a blue trim, blue shorts with a yellow trim , and yellow socks with two blue hoops, looked extremely bright with the lights behind the players and the dark setting of the store.
Questions from social media were next on the agenda, with the best answer coming from Gueye!
Wwhen asked was he looking forward to the Merseyside Derby his reply of “I like to fight ” got the biggest reception of the night.
Toward the end of the night for NSNO, we got an unexpected appearance from Keiran Dowell and Tom Davies, whose segment went in a similar vein as Williams and Gueye.
A short Q&A followed before a header challenge, which they had to complete on their knees. Tom Davies looked a little worried as the Gentleman and the Lady from the audience who had volunteered to challenge Tom and Keiran reached double figures with their attempt.
All in all, a good night and a nice gesture from the club once again.
Good to be there. Keep it up Everton.
