Being recognised as one of the best players ever to represent a club is an honour only a handful of names will ever receive, but
Kevin Sheedy is one of these icons for Everton.

The former Toffees winger played for over 10 years in the blue half of Merseyside after failing to make the grade at Liverpool, and the Welsh-born Republic of Ireland international is often considered one of the finest players ever to represent Everton in the team’s history, with The Liverpool Echo recognising Sheedy as one of the club’s greatest ever names and a naming him in the club’s best XI.
And to celebrate his 60th birthday, Everton supporters on social media wished Sheedy well on his special day as well as reminisce over this years at the Toffees, where the attacker scored two First Division titles as well as the European Cup Winners Cup.
Here’s what some Everton fans had to say about Sheedy on Twitter…

Use to welly pillows and cushions around my house as a kid shouting “SHEEDY” at full volume. Until I volleyed the cat* and my Dad leathered me.
