Roberto Martinez visited Everton Park to shed light on Everton Football Club's illustrious heritage.

The tower, which forms the centrepiece of Everton Football Club’s crest, has been permanently turned blue, with the manager himself pressing the switch.

The 235-year-old lock-up, known locally in north Liverpool as PrinceRupert’s Tower, sits on a triangular piece of ground in Everton Park between Netherfield Road South and Everton Brow.

The launch event was also attended by the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, and the Friends of Everton Park, and is the culmination of a year-long project to light up the tower and highlight the association between the Club and the community.
