Ephraim 'Jock' Dodds Was Everton's Recod Signing in November 1946, when we paid £8,800 to Shamrock Rovers. Jock played 55 games and scored 36 goals in 2 seasons for Everton. Everton sold him to Lincoln City for £6,000 in October, 1948.

In this NEW feature on Blue Kipper we will be adding more 'Post-war record signings' over the coming weeks. To date there are 26. Can you name them?

My own not very vivid recollection was that Jock Dodds was not that great. Remember however he came as a successor to Dixie Dean who in turn was followed by b Tommy Lawton, in my opinion the two greatest No. 9's we have ever had. Any Centre forward we had bought at that time was on a hiding to nothing

Believe it or not i think Steve simonsen's £3.3m was a record for a stopper! As was Paul Gerard at £1.5m! Makes T-How's £4m look like a bagain doesn't it?

I don't think he was signed from Shamrock Rovers. I think that lad was signed from Blackpool, and was known as Jock Dodds.
