Jack Southworth



Signed from Blackburn Rovers in August 1893 for the huge sum of 400, Jack Southworth was already
a star in the footballing world before he arrived at Goodison Park with two FA Cup winners medals and
three England caps, plus three goals, to his name.

He was effectively the successor to Fred Geary in the Everton dominant scorer role and his first season
at the club saw him notch 27 goals in 22 League games.
That total included four at home to Sheffield Wednesday and six at Goodison against West Brom in successive
home matches over the festive period – a feat no other Everton player has ever managed.

He ended that season as the first Everton player to be the top flight’s top scorer and he started the following
season in similar vein, scoring eight times in the first nine matches before injury brought a premature end
to his season and, tragically, his career.

Overall he had scored 158 goals in 165 League and Cup games for Blackburn and Everton, a truly memorable strike rate. 

After leaving football Southworth became a professional violinist and played with the Halle Orchestra.
