About the mural
This stunning mural was painted in November 2020 by the talented street art team of MurWalls. The artwork stands proud on the side of the Lee Floorstock building in The Baltic District, Liverpool.
The mural was arranged by the organisation, Kit It Out and although it took months of planning and design from MurWalls, the artwork process only took an impressive 48 hours to complete.
The artwork celebrates five great legends from Everton FC’s past, Dixie Dean, Alan Ball, Howard Kendall, Neville Southall MBE and Leighton Baines. Alan Ball’s famous quote, “Once Everton has touched you, nothing will be the same” sits above the legends portraits. The artwork is completed with the MurWalls tag and the logos of the Everton FC Supporters Trust, Fans Supporting Food Banks and Kit It Out.
The five Everton FC legends
William Ralph "Dixie" Dean
(22 January 1907 – 1 March 1980)
Dean was an English footballer who played as a centre forward. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of his generation and was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2002. He is best known for his exploits during the 1927–28 season, which saw him score a record 60 league goals. He also scored 18 goals in 16 appearances for England.
Alan Ball Jr.
(12 May 1945 – 25 April 2007)
Ball was an English professional footballer and manager. He was the youngest member of England's 1966 World Cup winning team and played as a midfielder for various clubs, scoring more than 180 league goals in a career spanning 22 years. In his five years at Everton as a player, Ball scored 66 goals in 208 appearances.
Ball is celebrated by Everton fans as a great and his iconic quote sits above the legends, “Once Everton has touched you, nothing will be the same”.
(22 May 1946 – 17 October 2015)
Howard Kendall was an Everton English footballer and manager. Kendall joined Everton in 1967 and scored 21 goals from midfield in 229 appearances before leaving in 1974. Kendall returned to Goodison Park as manager and also played a handful of games. He managed the Toffees in 3 separate spells; 1981-87, 1990-93 & 1997-98.
In his first spell as manager, Kendall guided Everton to the League Cup final (losing to Liverpool in a replay) and went on to win the FA Cup. In the 1984–85 season, Everton won the League Championship, finishing 13 points clear of runners-up Liverpool, and the European Cup-Winners' Cup and reached the final of the FA Cup again. Everton narrowly failed to win both the League and the FA Cup in 1985–86 – runners-up in both to Liverpool.
During his first spell at Goodison Park, he built an almost entirely new team which proved itself as one of the finest of the whole decade. He brought in younger players such as Peter Reid and Trevor Steven from smaller clubs and also brought in established star players such as Andy Gray, who was instrumental in a season and a half after joining them in late 1983, his goals transforming a struggling side into FA Cup winners and then league champions and European Cup Winners' Cup winners. He then brought in Gary Lineker who scored 38 goals in the 1985–86 season, albeit narrowly failing to win the major trophies.
Kendall was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2005 in recognition of his contribution as a manager to the English game
Neville Southall MBE
Southall is a Welsh former international footballer. He has been described as one of the best goalkeepers of his generation and won the FWA Footballer of the Year award in 1985
Neville Southall is a goalkeeper of outstanding ability. In the mid- to late-eighties, Neville Southall was rated as one of the top three goalkeepers in the world, some even say he was the best. Through the nineties, as Southall matured and aged, he was expected to retire gracefully, but Big Nev confounded the critics and just kept on going. He surpassed Ted Sagar's incredible appearance record, and went on to chalk up his 700th appearance at the 1996-97 season opener against Newcastle United.
His best recent season was 1994-95, when he helped Everton to a record seven consecutive clean sheets in the Premiership, and rounded it all off with an excellent performance in the second half of the 1995 FA Cup Final to deny the devilish red onslaught.
Leighton John Baines is an English former professional footballer who played as a left back. Baines started his career with Wigan Athletic, and was part of the team that won the Second Division in the 2002–03 season and was a runner-up in the 2004–05 Championship and the 2006 League Cup Final. He joined Everton in 2007, helping them reach the 2009 FA Cup Final.
Baines racked up an incredible 348 appearances scoring 29 goals from left back over a 13 year period. His loyalty along with his talent has him regarded as a Everton FC legend.
