Meeting Everton Players
Something that sets NSNO nights aside from others of it's nature is the chance for Everton fans to meet and mingle with their heroes. Other events may usher their guest players in and out of a VIP room without any contact with the audience other than their Q&A, but at NSNO, we pride ourselves on encouraging our guest speakers to mingle with their fans.
Our recent guest speakers have commented on how much they enjoy being given time to speak one to one with fans at our nights, and although the comfort of a separate room is made available to them, all have chosen not to use it after the dinners, and instead have stayed for long periods of time afterwards to talk to fans and sign autographs. Gary Stevens was even spotted out on the town with several fans after his appearance at the 2008 end of season dinner!
The historical Everton fanzine, Blueblood, described our last event as [b]"one of the best….informative and revealing…..a wonderful evening"[/b]
The Holiday Inn
The Holiday Inn is set slap bang in the heart of Liverpool City Centre, directly opposite Lime Street Station, and provided the perfect place for Evertonians to get together and celebrate our heritage, whilst also celebrating another season of European qualification for our end of season dinner, and so has been chosen again for our mid-season dinner.
Joe Royle was a swashbuckling centre forward for Everton scoring 119 goals in 273 appearances, making him Everton's third most proflic post-war striker, and maintaining NSNO's record of bringing you Everton's top goalscorers.
He won the FA Cup as manager with Everton in 1995 and only recently saw his record as Everton's youngest player beaten by James Vaughan.
Royle will be joined by more guests connected with the 1995 FA Cup win who will be confirmed on this page as we get the details.
Renowned for his left foot, he was also a dead-ball specialist, whether scoring from free-kicks or from the penalty spot.
Sheedy's most notable achievements were as part of the 1984 Everton team that won the FA Cup, (although he missed the final through injury). In 1985 and 1987 he won the Football League Championship, and in 1985 the European Cup Winners' Cup, scoring in the final itself.
He now works at the club as a youth academy coach
The night is also to celebrate the launch of NSNO's second book, entitled "Cup Final Blues : A history of Everton's FA Cup Glory" written by editor Simon Paul. The book is available to pre-order from http://www.cupfinalblues.com and will be available on the night to buy and have signed by our guests.
