Ian Snodin: Everton have always done the right thing when it comes to former players

A HUGE gathering of former players gathered at Goodison Park last night to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Everton Former Players' Foundation. A registered charity, the Foundation does some great work and it's great to see them reaching such a milestone. But I've always found that Everton as a club are really good at looking after their own. There are always tickets available at matches for ex-players, which was something I appreciated before I started working at Goodison on matchdays. David Moyes has got it just right with the way he's using Jermaine Beckford IT was great to see Jermaine Beckford get off the mark in the Premier League with such a stunning strike against Bolton. But I would have to take the manager's side and say that his progress as a top flight striker would be better served by introductions from the bench rather than from the start for the time being. The system that David Moyes employs with one striker up top and five in midfield doesn't suit Beckford. With the Blues chasing the game in the last two matches he has come on with a striking partner - Yakubu on Wednesday against Bolton and the Yak and Louis Saha on Sunday.
