The Everton Former Players’ Foundation (EFPF) hosted its media day ahead of the new Barclays Premier League season, and as media officer for the charity, I was responsible for organising former player appearances and conducting interviews for EFPF’s various media channels at Goodison Park to promote our fundraising activities.
The following interviews were completed on the day:
