Moyes targets Everton silverware

David Moyes is hoping the FA Cup clash with Bolton will take him a step closer to his first major piece of silverware.

David Moyes is hoping the FA Cup clash with Bolton will take him a step closer to his first major piece of silverware.

He said: "I didn't know until this morning that it was 500 games. It's amazing that some people have got 1,000 games at one club, that is some achievement."

"Obviously 500's not a bad number when you see the way people get rid of their managers so quickly nowadays."

The closest they came in recent years was a run to the FA Cup final in 2009, including victory over Manchester United in the last four, but they were beaten to the trophy by Chelsea.

Moyes said: "Hopefully the real highlights are still to come, they're the ones I'm looking forward to. But I've enjoyed a lot of good times at Everton."

"My first game (against Fulham) was a great day, scoring in the opening minute. Since then we qualified for the Champions League, and in that year we had to beat Manchester United in the run-in and Newcastle, so I think that would stand out.

"And maybe the semi-final of the FA Cup, when we got to the final. Albeit we didn't win the final. There may be haven't been enough trophies but certainly some good highlights."

Moyes added: "I think we've always gone for it. Talk's cheap - you have to do it. We're going to try to do it. I've said to the players that we want to try to win the FA Cup, but I say that every year. It's down to us to try to make that happen."
