THE Football League's first ever penalty kick was awarded at Anfield. And before Evertonians start smirking and muttering 'down at the Kop End by any chance?' it was in the days when Everton were in residence. And it was missed. A Sunderland striker called Wilson shot wide of the target just two minutes into his team's visit to Merseyside, but the Wearsiders still went on to win 4-0. And did you know the first Everton footballer sent off in a League match was Charlie Parry, by the appropriately named Mr Grump! Those historical nuggets, and many more are included in true Blue Evertonian Billy Smith's mammoth new website undertaking. Quite simply, Billy is attempting to compile every single match report of every single Everton match, home, away and abroad, from all-time . . . . ever. It's like counting the grains of sand in the Sahara. But before you shake your head in disbelief, Billy's already up to 1930-31. It's all there in the grandly titled website - Everton Independent Research Data on www.bluecorrespondent.co.nr Split into seasons, plus bonus sections referring to penalty kicks and sendings-off, there are reports from every match Everton have ever played.
