Everton Chairmen


Recommended Posts

I'm reading a book from 1977, it says that the most famous Everton Chairman of all time is Will Cuff. I would have thought it'd have been Sir John Moores because of the money he put into the club. Is the Sir John Moores popularity a relatively recent development or is the book simply wrong ?

Carter wasn't really known in '77. he didn't become Chairman 'til '78.


The book's author Nick Walsh (it's the Dixie Dean biography) was born in 1915, Cuff was Chairman between 1922 and 1938. So for Walsh, aged 7 'til 23 Cuff was all he would know. Perhaps it was childhood nostalgia that favoured Cuff over Moores or maybe he didn't like the pools companies being involved with football.
