List of Everton F.C. players

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of notable footballers who have played for Everton. Generally, this means players that have played 100 or more first-class matches for the club. A number of other players who have played an important role in a League title win have also been included for their contribution – Andy Gray for example. Players in Everton's early history are also included despite not necessarily playing 100 matches.

For a list of all Everton players, major or minor, with a Wikipedia article, see Category:Everton F.C. players, and for the current squad see the main Everton F.C. article.

Players are listed according to the date of their first team debut. Appearances and goals are for first-team competitive matches only; wartime matches are excluded. Substitute appearances included.

Appearance figures as of 28 August 2011
