Everton History

Tommy Eglington, the Irish international left-winger, gave unstinting service to the Blues’ cause during some of the club’s darkest days. He is forever associated with his teammate and great friend, Peter Farrell, who crossed the Irish Sea with him in 1946.
Tommy was born in Donnycarney, a Northside suburb of Dublin on 15th January 1923.
