Roy Evans (Q&A Only)
Former Professional Footballer, Football Manager, After Dinner Speaker, Guest Apperances
Roy Evans former youth player, first-team player, kit washer, physio, coach, reserve manager and finally the manager of Liverpool Football Club.
In August 1974 Liverpool made an addition to their backroom staff that led chairman John Smith to say: "We have not made an appointment for the present but for the future. One day Roy Evans will be our manager."
It was a bold statement but one that would ultimately come true - albeit 30 years later.
Back in '74 the idea to promote the 25-year-old Evans to the role of reserve team coach was the brainchild of Bob Paisley who, following Bill Shankly's shock resignation, persuaded the left-back to swap the hallowed turf of Anfield for the all-knowing walls of the Boot Room.
It was an inspired move and one that would ultimately prove to be the making of him.
Roy to this day remains the most successful English manager in the Premier League winning 82 of his 172 games and while in charge Liverpool scored 280 goals. Moreover, during his 35 years at the club 29 of our 41 major honours were won including 13 league titles and the European Cup four times.
