Everton History

Fred Pickering passed away on 9th February, at the age of 78, in his hometown of Blackburn.  
Fred was a forward as a youth but was switched to left-back by Blackburn Rovers as it offered him greater opportunities to progress. He captained Rovers’ 1959 FA Youth Cup-winning team and debuted for the first team, wearing the number 3 shirt, later that year.
