Warney Cresswell



It cost Everton 7,000 to prise England international Warney Cresswell away from Sunderland in February
1927 but he was to repay that fee many times over in his nine year stay at the club.

He was in many ways an unusual defender for his era, when blood-and-thunder tackles predominated. Cresswell, on the other hand, depended more on timing and position and would jockey opponents
away from dangerous areas. He was nicknamed "the Prince of Full-Backs".

He was also an organiser and captained the club in the League championship winning season of
1927/28 and the following season as well.
He won two League titles whilst at Everton, as well as a Division 2 title and the FA Cup in 1933
at the age of 35 years.

He made 308 appearances for the club before leaving in May 1936 to take over the manager's reigns
at Port Vale and he won one of his seven England caps whilst at Goodison Park, against Northern
Ireland in Belfast in October 1929.
