Everton: Club Profile
You wait ages for your first match against Everton and two come along at once; one in each of the ‘main’ cup competitions. The first was in the 2013-4 League Cup and went into extra time before the bigger club came out on top. The second? Well, our 2013-4 FA Cup meeting at the Lamex was far more decisive in the Toffees’ favour.

Facilities for Disabled Fans
For a Premier League club, Everton’s provision for disabled supporters is perhaps relatively modest. In the away end, you will find 13 wheelchair spaces although they have little cover if the weather should be poor. Helpers sit adjacent or behind. However, it seems that facilities for visually impaired and ambulant disabled supporters are restricted to home fans only.
That said, Brendan Connolly is the stadium contact and will be able to advise you with more clarity on facilities. The phone number is 0871 663 1878.
You are not far from the city centre at Goodison Park, so you may prefer that as a pre-match drinking location. If you want somewhere nearer, however, you could try one of two options – The Thomas Frost (a Wetherspoons) appears to allow visiting supporters in and is a shortish walk away, or Bradleys Wine Bar isn’t much further and comes recommended as a good pub.
Everton Travel Information – Distance: 191 miles
The first part of the journey by car is relatively simple; travel north on the M1 (or A1/A14 if you prefer) and join the M6. Continue on the M6 until you reach Junction 21a for the M62 and take the westbound carriageway, which will be signposted Liverpool, Warrington and Southport.
Once you reach the outskirts of Liverpool and the end of the M62, continue onto the A5080 or Bowring Park Road as it is also called. Shortly afterwards, you need to get into the right lane and turn right onto the A5088 Queens Drive. After 3.6 miles, turn left onto the A580 Walton Hall Avenue and follow it until you reach Spellow Lane.
You will have already seen the stadium before the Spellow Lane turning, but it will take you to the venue’s road entrance.
If you arrive in good time, you might be able to source local street parking around the ground. But otherwise, you might need to park towards Anfield or in Stanley Park; the latter having an £8 cost.
Services to: LIVERPOOL CENTRAL (for LIVERPOOL LIME STREET)
Kirkdale is your nearest station for Goodison Park and serves Liverpool Central, though this is not a station that will link you to services back towards Leeds for Stevenage/London; you will need Lime Street for this. Alternatively, you might want to consider Sandhills as there is a bus service in operation from here on matchdays.
