Full squad turn out for Everton in the Community charity


Manager Marco Silva joined the full first-team squad at Everton in the Community’s annual Showcase in pledging their ongoing support to the charity and its work by signing a commitment pledge.

  • Left back Leighton Baines says the team are proud to be part of the charity.

This year’s Showcase event saw the entire squad involved for the first time and highlighted the life-changing and life-saving work of the Club’s official charity and saw the team split into five groups, each spending time finding out more about one flagship programme from each of the charity’s five pillars.

Silva and Brands both spent time at each of the five activity stations, finding out more about the programme and its work as well as meeting participants who directly benefit from it.

From the first day I was here, I felt this club was a family,” said Silva.

This connection is important and something we want to build.

It is really impressive how our club can support our community. It is a pleasure for the staff and players to be part of this afternoon.

It is important for the players, too, they understand and enjoy how the Club wants to support the community.”
