Everton Appoints Graeme Sharp To Board Of Directors

Everton Football Club has announced the appointment of Graeme Sharp to its Board of Directors.

 

 

The Everton club legend will become a non-executive Director and, whilst he will remain the Club’s Players’ Life President, will relinquish all other club duties to focus on his role on the Board.

 

Speaking of his appointment Sharp, said: “This club is in my blood. I have enjoyed many great days as a Blue – and joining the Board and being able to play a part in shaping Everton’s future is one of the greatest honours of all.

 

“I look forward to working with my fellow Board members and take my responsibility as a custodian of our great club very seriously.”

 

Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright, added: “We were determined to have someone join us with not only great knowledge of Everton but also extensive football insight and experience. Someone who could support and challenge. And in Sharpy’s case we’ve got this in abundance.”

 

In his new role, Sharp will utilise the wealth of knowledge of the game he has been amassed over more than four decades to provide valuable input into the club’s football strategy.

 

A talismanic striker, he was top-scorer in Howard Kendall’s 1984/85 title-winning side and an integral member of the team when Everton reclaimed the championship two years later. He scored in the final when Everton won the FA Cup in 1984 and was on target on Goodison Park’s most famous night, the semi-final victory over Bayern Munich in the Blues’ triumphant 1984/85 European Cup Winners’ Cup campaign.

 

In 2000, he returned to Everton in an Ambassadorial role which he combined with media duties for both the club and national and international broadcasters and was inducted as an Everton Giant in 2005 and in 2020 became Everton’s first Players’ Life President.
