Red & Blue - Three Former SAFC & Everton Players

Well here we are again, seems like it’s been a while since we played on a weekend and who better than to face one of our former bogey teams, Everton.

One of our dizziest highs was winning the FA Cup back in 1973, while we have spent some unwanted time in the third tier.
