Evertonians are being invited to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Club legend Bob Latchford scoring 30 goals in one season.

Aided by the precise crossing skills of Dave Thomas throughout the season, Latchford reached the 30-goal mark on 29 April 1978 by scoring a double in a 6-0 home win over Chelsea on the last day of the season.

Some of ‘the Latch’s’ former teammates will be sharing their exclusive stories throughout the evening event. Some of those confirmed so far include Derek Mountfield, Jim Pearson, Dave Thomas, Mark Higgins and Mike Pejic with more names to be confirmed soon.

Tickets cost £30 each which includes the chance to hear from Bob and his team mates, meet them during a private signing session and a limited-edition version of Bob’s autobiography, ‘A Different Road’.

Doors open at 7:30pm with the event starting at 8pm, there will be a cash bar available throughout.

All profits will go to EFC Heritage Society and Everton Former Players foundation.
