Everton will be the opponents for Blackpool midfielder Keith Southern's testimonial later this summer.

Southern is a former reserves captain of Everton.

Tangerines midfielder Southern said: "I'm absolutely delighted.

"I got wind yesterday that it was definitely going to be Everton, which is perfect.

"When I signed a new contract in September and was told I would have a testimonial there was only one club I really wanted it to be against."
