Official Everton Membership 2019-20 – £15 for ESCLA members

Message from  Steven Richards at Everton, any ESCLA member wishing to take advantage of this offer should  contact Peter – peter@leachweb.co.uk .

Dear ESCLA member

Our official supporters club discounted memberships are now on sale for £15.

With huge demand to watch Marco Silva’s team in action at Goodison for the new campaign, Official Members will also get priority ticket access to all home Premier League games and Domestic Cup games throughout 2019-20. Joining the Official Membership scheme gives Evertonians the chance to purchase match tickets at least three days before they go on general sale.

Being a Member also improves chances of securing a Season Ticket in future seasons as priority will be given to members on the waiting list.

Kind regards

Steven Richards (Everton)

Contacting Pete re: Match Tickets 2019/20

99.9% of match ticket applications now come in by e-mail – peter@leachweb.co.uk – which actually makes applications easier to keep track of and is my preferred method.
The ESCLA phone line has been discontinued but members may call me on  my regular phone – members will find the number on their membership cards – given there are now so few phone calls, calls are no longer restricted to set times  – members wishing to phone may do so at ANY time ( the first comedian who tries me at 3 in the morning will be liquidated).

NEW SOCIAL SECRETARY

The Committee is pleased to announce that Rob Madigan has joined the Committee as Social Secretary. Rob is the Manager of the Horseshoe Pub in Clerkenwell – 24 Clerkenwell Close, London EC1R 0AG and is keen for the pub to be the social centre for ESCLA events. The pub shows live TV games and is open Monday to Friday and most Saturdays, especially if Everton are on, including this Saturday for the Chelsea game, so pop along and introduce yourself. The pub is not open on Sundays. Rob will be e-mailing members in the next few weeks to fully introduce himself.

Goodison 1922 – Notice the old Gwladys St terrace with houses at the back and also the old Bullens Rd stand. (Thankyou Jim Gore for the photo).

Goodison Park 1938

Long time ESCLA member Jim Gore sent me a link to some great aerial views of Goodison taken in 1938, I was going to post them here but I’m not sure about copyright issues (English Heritage/Liverpool Echo) so instead here is the link to where you can view them – http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/nostalgia/walton-above-amazing-pictures-1920s-7682585

Pubs

Hi, I’m an Evertonian living in London. Work commitments make it difficult to travel to most games, but I was wondering if there is a pub in London that shows the Everton games which aren’t on Sky, that you could recommend? Cheers, Neal
