Everton chairman Kenwright wants silverware

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright admits he dreams of bringing silverware to Goodison Park.

The Club's last success in any competition came in the FA Cup in 1995. Twelve years on and Kenwright is eager to see more glory for the Club he has followed all his life.

He told evertonfc.com: "I have always been a great lover of cup competitions. One of the greatest memories of my Everton life was in 1966 when - as every Evertonian knows - it wasn't about England winning the World Cup but Derek Temple and Mike Trebilcock scoring those goals.

"I will never forget what a day that was at Wembley nor the joy that subsequent visits have brought us. The period in the mid-1980s, when it seemed as if we had a season ticket, was one of the happiest times of my life.

"I know that David is at one with me on this when I say we are desperate to bring some silverware back to Goodison Park again and a trip to Wembley or even down the road to Manchester next May (for the Uefa Cup final) would be a great boost to us all.

"It is great to be in the hat for three trophies right now and to feel the excitement, like we all did at 11am last Tuesday, when the balls were being pulled out for the UEFA Cup draw, is something we hope can continue for a long time."
