Football is a sport absolutely loaded with money, but sometimes it can be the small things that mean the most to supporters.
After Everton’s 4-2 win away against Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup, Marco Silva went to his players and told them to give their shirts to the fans, this is one of those gestures that can mean a lot:
| Everywhere we go, you follow.

As superb as Lucas Digne’s free-kick goal and assist for Richarlison’s header were, as can be seen in Sky Sports’ highlights video, the main memory some of those in the away end at Sincil Bank will have is the moment one of their heroes walked up to them and handed over their shirt.
It was a brilliant gesture from the manager and his players, but supporters will now be hoping the club’s next favour for them is bouncing back from defeat to Aston Villa and getting three points against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the gesture, including posts from appreciative Everton fans, can be seen below:
