How many goals did Everton score in their title winning season of 1987?

Plenty of players have come through Everton’s youth ranks and made their way into the reserve team and even the senior squad. Tom Davies is a grand and current example of a player who has worked his way up to play on the big stage. Not to mention Wayne Rooney who of course also rose through the Everton Academy to become one of the best English footballers and biggest household names.

Will Everton finish inside the top six this season?





Blues fans have flocked to the announcement to wish young Swift good luck and congratulate him on the opportunity. One supporter has labelled him a ‘superb player’ whilst another has summed up the news as ‘amazing’.

Blues fans, if you could give the youngster one bit of advice, what would it be? Let us know in the comments!
