A few quick Everton stories to make your life a bit brighter.

Dame of Thrones

DAME JUDI DENCH has been royally seated as honorary patron of the Toffees’ official charity, Everton in the Community.  The Academy award winning actress and Bluenose stated: “I was truly honoured to be offered the chance to become involved in such a special charity and at my football club.  I am excited to be able to represent a charity, which continues to push social boundaries and help so many people across Merseyside and beyond.  The work the staff undertake on a daily basis is humbling and an inspiration to us all.”

Dame Dench will begin her work immediately with the charity, which in the last year has scooped national and international recognition for its work.

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright had fantastic things to say about Dench – though he may also have been buttering her up in case of a need for a future bank loan: “We are thrilled to welcome Dame Judi on board to our fantastic award winning Everton in the Community scheme.  Judi’s husband Michael was an avid ‘Blue’ and her grandson Sam is following in his footsteps. Judi keeps up with our progress from wherever her work takes her. She is a trusted friend and colleague and will be a fantastic asset to the charity.”

Everton Claims Victory in New Kit Deal

Nike is the Greek goddess of Victory, and it is also the number one sports merchandise company in the world.  So, Toffees can now thank the goddess and claim victory as the Blues have secured a three year contract which will see the world’s biggest sporting-goods maker equip the People’s Club with kits and training wear starting next season.

Everton Chief Executive Officer Robert Elstone stated: “We’re all excited by the prospect of working with Nike’s design, marketing and retailing teams and look forward to seeing some impressive, original kits and products.,”

Nike officially commented with “We hope the rich history, class, and amazing form of Everton will inspire our other clubs under contract, like Manchester United, Barcelona and Arsenal, to improve their games, as well”**

**OK, I made up that last quote.

Scousers Invade Wembley

With a dominate showing against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light this week, Everton confirmed that it will be a Merseyside Derby FA Cup Semi Final at the New Wembley Stadium on April 14th.  Unlike their recent league skirmish, David Moyes promises to not rest his in-form players and plans to go after the dirty Reds.

While Everton has been in fantastic form (despite their 3-0 loss to Liverpool two weeks ago), Liverpool have struggled of late (again, despite their 3-0 win over Everton two weeks ago).  If the season had started in January, Everton would be on the cusp of a top 4 finish, and the Reds would be walking alone toward relegation.
