Everton remembers

david france remembers

Before Everton face Brighton and Hove Albion at Goodison Park today, the Blues will invite fans to join them in remembering those who gave their lives in wars as part of the remembrance ahead of next Sunday.

Today is the last home game before Remembrance Sunday and Everton will continue the tradition of paying respects to those who have fallen in conflicts around the world.

Earlier this week, Jonjoe Kenny and Michael Keane joined members of the Everton Heritage Society to plant trees to remember members of Everton’s playing staff – both in the UK and Chile – who gave their lives in World War 1.

A plaque – pictured above – is mounted on the wall of the Park End next to the Dixie Dean statue to remember those players who gave their lives and was purchased as part of the Everton Heritage Society’s research, and funded by Dr David France.

The Gwladys Street Boys will also be unfurling one of their excellent banners from the Upper Gwladys Street before the match to commemorate the fallen.
