Everton appoint club legend Graeme Sharp to board

Everton have appointed former player and club legend Graeme Sharp to their board as a non-executive director.

Everton's heirarchy have been conducting a review into the club's structure with the Toffees struggling in the Premier League this season, with Director of Football Marcel Brands leaving the club late last year. 

Speaking of his appointment Sharp said: “This Club is in my blood. I have enjoyed many great days as a Blue - and joining the Board and being able to play a part in shaping Everton’s future is one of the greatest honours of all.

“I look forward to working with my fellow Board members and take my responsibility as a custodian of our great Club very seriously.”

Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright added: “We were determined to have someone join us with not only great knowledge of Everton but also extensive football insight and experience. Someone who could support and challenge. And in Sharpy’s case we’ve got this in abundance.”

The second-highest goal scorer in Everton history, Sharp amassed four major trophies during his playing career at Goodison, playing 447 times between 1980 and 1991.
