A vintage photo of Dixie Dean and his teammates on their way home from a match has emerged on Twitter and many Everton fans are absolutely loving it.
The image features club legend William Ralph ‘Dixie’ Dean alongside his Everton teammates leaving a match in the 1930s.
Dean spent 12 years of his career with the Merseyside outfit before moving on to play briefly for Notts County, Sligo Rovers and Hurst. The Goodison Park icon amassed 399 appearances and in that time scored 349 goals. His record of scoring a phenomenal 60 goals in a single league season is still untouched by any other English footballer, and many argue it will never come close to being broken.

Will Everton finish inside the top six this season?
Many Blues fans were recently remembering Dean’s historic milestone after he scored his 60th goal exactly 92 years ago on 5 May 1928. These Everton fans flocked to the image of him and his teammates, with one supporter describing it as ‘absolutely superb’, whilst others are just proud to follow their club:
Absolutely superb picture. Thank you

Down to county road for a few jars and a couple of Jagers. Ted Sagar and Dixie on Karaoke before heading into town! Joe Mercer’s other half won’t let him go but Cliff Britton & Ted Critchley smuggle him onto the horse and carriage and off we go! Up the toffees!
