Everton is fondly regarded as ‘The People’s Club’, built upon strong values of hard work and loyalty.
Led by David Moyes who has enjoyed a decade in charge of the Toffees, one of the constant features at Goodison Park has been the club’s desire to bring through homegrown talent.
Everyone will always look to Wayne Rooney’s emergence in 2002, when he came off the bench as a 16-year-old to single handedly inflict defeat on Arsenal.
There hasn’t been an emergence quite like that since, but Everton continue to look to develop their homegrown players in the hope of further instilling those strong values, and uphold the identity that Everton is indeed ‘The People’s Club.’
Moyes has been a master of working on a tight budget and unearthing gems of his own. Here we take a look at five youngsters who could be next to emerge as first team stars at Goodison Park in the not too distant future.
