"Taffy Vernon was about ten stone wet through. He looked as athletic as Pinocchio."
Brian Labone on Roy Vernon, who topped the goal scoring charts in his first four seasons at Everton. He was the perfect partner for Alex Young. He scored a hat-trick in a famous 4-1 win over Fulham at Goodison. The win in Everton's final match of the 1962/63 season brought the title to Goodison for the first time since the war.
