Stan Osborne is his name. Wrote a book called " Making the Grade" about his days at Everton. Think you can still buy it on Amazon.Brilliant early on loads of great funny stories in there no idea we’re all of mine are now. My memory might be playing tricks but am sure a fella called Stan who was a youth team player in the 70s would send in some belter stories
Think I missed the first ever issue but got it from issue No: 2 from the island on Goodison Road,never missed it until it went digital three or four years ago maybe?Some great writers in particular in the early days,FP McConville(RIP),the overseas correspondent,the cartoon "laugh along with those loveable reds"was the stuff of genius,I remember the very apt total black cover the day of the infamous Wimbledon game,to me that fanzine pretty much summed up what being an Evertonian was all about
