Everton pay tribute to Speed

Before kick-off supporters will be invited to take part in a

minute’s applause along with some of Speed’s former Everton

team-mates, including David Unsworth, Graham Stuart and Craig

Short. Scarves, flowers, flags and shirts have already been left at

the Park End in memory of the former club captain. “The gates will

remain closed until further notice so that supporters can continue

to visit Goodison Park to pay their respects and leave their own

personal tribute,” said a statement from the club. Everton will

also open official books of condolence at 9am tomorrow at Everton

One, Everton Two, on the club’s website and at the Everton

Experience in the Metquarter in Liverpool.
