Eric Moonman (29 April 1929 – 22 December 2017)

All his friends in ESCLA will be saddened to hear that Eric died last week. Our condolences and thoughts go out to Josh and Eric’s family.

Eric was ESCLA chairman from 1991 to 2014 and he served our club in that the role with as much dedication as he gave offices of much greater importance that he held both nationally and internationally, he was an ESCLA member to the end. Britain has lost a Statesman, Everton have lost a fervent supporter, ESCLA has lost a friend.

    God bless him. Lovely man, always had time for you. Sat in front of me in main stand for many years till he took a tumble, spoke to me all the time, always cheery, which is hard to be when watching the toffee’s sometimes! God bless you Eric!

    Thanks everyone for your kind words. Dad was a passionate Evertonian, season ticket holder for over thirty years and also very proud of his contribution to ESCLA.
    At at time when the ESCLA was very divided and could have gone its seperate ways, he managed to bring everyone together.

      Hi Josh,
      very sad to hear of Eric’s passing. We used to chat on the train about Southport days and his time as an excellent MP.
      Once a Blue,
      Best Regards,
