Peter Farrell



Peter Farrell arrived at Everton from Shamrock Rovers in July 1946 as part of the
10,000 double deal that also brought Tommy Eglington to the club.

It was great business by Everton and Farrell would go on to be the linchpin of
the Everton side for over ten years.

He was a tough uncompromising wing-half, featuring at both right and left half for Everton, as well as
at inside-left on occasion, and was an absolute hero to the Everton fans during his stay at the club.

He was club captain for nine seasons from 1948/49 onwards and oversaw both relegation and
promotion during his tenure, as well as scoring in the 4-3 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Bolton in 1952/53.

Farrell made 453 appearances for Everton, 422 of them in the League and only
Southall, Sagar, Labone and Watson have bettered that figure.

He also gained 7 Northern Ireland and 26 Eire caps whilst at Everton, scoring
a goal in the famous 2-0 Republic win over England at Goodison Park in 1949 - the first time
England had lost at home to a non-UK side.

In October 1957 Farrell moved on to become player-manager at Tranmere Rovers.
