Tony Hibbert is an experienced right back who plays for Everton. A product of the club?s youth set-up, Tony is a pacy tough tackling defender who links up effectively down the right flank and can deliver a telling cross into the opposition penalty area. Tony began his career as a midfield player, but quickly converted to right back and was a member of the team that won the FA Youth Cup in 1998. Occasionally now employed as an emergency central defender, Tony has made close to 200 Premiership appearances for the Toffees and was a regular for much of 2010-11. He is the only member of the current Everton squad who played in David Moyes' first game in charge against Fulham in 2002, and he holds club records for most appearances in European competitions and also for the most appearances by an outfield player without scoring. The latter feat has led to a cult-like following amongst the fans who have taken to shouting "Shoot!" any time he ventures into the opposing half with the ball!
