Everton Collection stands will be on show at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. Find out how a football team from St Domingos Methodist Church became one of the most successful clubs in British football history – Everton F.C.
The stands also provide detailed information about some of the oldest and most unique items of memorabilia in the Collection, including the Everton F.C. minute books (1887-1964), match programmes (1886-present day) and the oldest known team photograph from 1881!
Please note original items will not be displayed.
To launch the exhibition, acclaimed football author Peter Lupson will be giving a free talk, ‘Thank God for Football’, on Monday 16th August at 6pm in the Cathedral:
Peter Lupson signing booksThank God for Football! Peter Lupson Talk – Liverpool Cathedral, 16 August at 6pm:
It’s a little known fact that nearly a third of the clubs to have played in the Premiership, including Everton and Liverpool, can trace their origins to a church. Surprisingly, very little is known about the church roots of famous football clubs. In some cases even the names of their founders are wrong!
Drawing on original materials from a variety of sources, Peter Lupson has written two books which set the record straight – the bestseller, ‘Thank God for Football!’ and the acclaimed ‘Across the Park’, which focuses on Everton and Liverpool. In these books Peter has been able to bring the early pioneers to life and to transport us back to the time in which they lived.
He will share his exciting discoveries in a free talk at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral on Monday 16th August at 6pm.
