Best of the web – WBA vs Everton (1979)

Ahead of Monday night’s match at the Hawthorns we have searched the YouTube archive to find this rare footage from the 1979-80 season.


The game, played on 1st December 1979 ends all square, with the Everton side, managed by Gordon Lee and featuring Bob Latchford, Brian Kidd and the late Andy King, coming back to draw after falling behind to a Cyrille Regis goal. Everton were also thankful for a brilliant save from Martyn Hodges before Andy King fires Everton level.

Everton Results lists the teams as:

West Brom: Godden, Batson, Pendrey, Brown, Wile, Robertson, Robson, Brown, Regis, Owen, Barnes.

Everton: Hodges, Gidman, Bailey, Wright, Higgins, Ross, Harford, Stanley, Latchford, Kidd, King.
