One of the most cherished medals in Everton's history is coming home, writes David Prentice in the Liverpool Echo.

The League Championship medal presented to Dixie Dean after his record-breaking 60-goal season in 1927-28 will be back at Goodison Park - on the eve of the 90th anniversary of the legendary centre-forward's iconic achievement.

And fans are being invited to see it at a special celebration event at the People's Club Lounge at Goodison Park on Friday, 4th May.

The medal was sold at auction in Glasgow in 1991 to Gordon Wallis. On the night Gordon will reveal for the first time an unexpected personal story linked with the Dean medal purchase.

Tickets for ‘Dixie Dean — the legend of 60 goals' event are £10 each and are available now.
