Aaagh you beat me to it Louis.

The move was initiated by Barry Horne, the former Everton captain, after a characteristically biting tackle and pass. The player who has inherited his mantle in midfield is John Collins.

Captaining the side is different to being official club captain though isn't it?

Thought. Wouldn't have Dave Watson been club captain during that time?

Dave Watson was made first team captain in January 1992, succeeding Kevin Ratcliffe. As he was at the club 'til 2001 and Horne was only there from 92 to 96 that'd suggest that, even though he did captain the team on the pitch he was never Club Captain. So it depends on your definition.

Exactly MikeO. I know he captained the odd game but only when Watson was out.

Winnings? Well one of us thinking Evertonians could get our hands on a replica FA Cup if we can climb out of mid table obscurity in this quiz league. One of my questions was 'Which club did Barry Horne captain....' which led to the arguement yesterday. Anway have a go, my best score is 41 ... http://www.ilcmediadirect.com/quiz/ -
