Big Neville Southall

Player Valuation: £8m
Can anyone fill in the blanks for the original Everton words to this old song? I only know the first verse in full.
The last part is about Ian St John. I don't know whether that is a third verse, or just a separate version altogether. With thanks to an an old poster on here called Coyney (hope you're still around mate).

There was a forward, a Scottish Forward
He came from far away, to see the Everton play
There was none bolder, with deep broad shoulder
His name was Alex Young, he plays for Everton

He scored a hat trick, for Harry Catterick....
....on the Green Fields of Goodison

.....He came from Motherwell....
But now he's signing, his heart is crying
To leave those 'green hills (?)' of Anfield

I don't know the lyrics, but Alex Young came from Hearts, and hails from Loanhead in Midlothian.
