Founded as St Domingo's in 1878; Everton were a parish team filling in the gaps in the cricketing season. A found member of the Football League, they are one of Britain's most successful football teams.
Their first title came in 1890-91 and titles and domestic Cups came in the following seasons; but it wasn't 1927 that Everton became a dominant force in English football. Inspired by record goalscorer Dixie Dean, they won the 1927-28 title, Dean getting 60 goals.
Everton's rich history is punctuated with Cup and league successes until the fifties when The Blues were relegated. Another brief period of dominance in the sixties under Harry Catterick was abruptly ended when he retired and his successors couldn't match up.
Howard Kendall brought more silverware to the club in the 1980's in the shape of two league titles and the first and only European triumph. Kendall left, however, after the tragic Heysel Stadium disaster meant English fans were deemed too dangerous to hold abroad.
Everton were only reignited when a determined young Scot took charge in 2002. David Moyes gave The Toffees determination and solidity to provide the consistency needed to move up the table on a shoestring budget.
