Colin Harvey is from Bootle. I spoke to him in a pub in Town Green a few years back and when i mentioned I was from Bootle, he said he was as well, Alexandra Drive Off Orrell Lane. May have gone to school in Fazakerley like, it's not far.
Colin lived 67 Manica Cresent when he played for Everton met him many times what a lovely man

.....I’m a 63 year old scouser but I’m not sure of the geographical definition of the North and South Ends of the City, but my initial thoughts are that the North End has produced more Everton players.

I’ll put a bit of meat on the bone and collate some details later.

Yeh Branch was Aigburth, went to my primary school. He preferred playing cricket by all accounts and probably could’ve made a better career out of that
....Branch is a good shout. I’m that old, his Dad was a very good player and an old teammate of mine.

Thought of Ian Marshall and Harry Bennet (kicked me all over a football pitch once), but not sure where in the City they come from.

....plenty of top players have come through our ranks from other parts of the country. Jimmy Husband from the North-East was terrific and John Hurst come to mind. We did have a lot of Irish lads not many years back, Richard Dunne having a fabulous career.

Great work, Eggs. Impressive detail. I broadly agree with the categories, though might have thrown the Cantril Farm player Bishop in with Huyton-Dovecot, and split Old Swan-Wavertree up, as explained below. I'd also put Dave Jones from Huyton into Halewood...and I think you missed McMahon out there (?)...who I'd also put into Halewood - and I'd place them both into my "Liverpool South' category. So....

....in broad terms, it's obvious that the hypothesis that north end districts would dominate is proven...Walton, Kirkdale, Scotty, Norris Green, Crocky on 20 (and even more so if you throw in Bootle's 5 to make 25. That would be 'Liverpool North'.

'Liverpool East' (Dovecot/Huyton/Canny Farm...and I'd throw Old Swan in as 'east') = 9.

After that is 'Liverpool South' (Toxteth/Garston...and I'd say Wavertree at a stretch and also Halewood) = 9.


For me that lot ^^^^ would be a 'Greater Liverpool' snapshot of players from known identifying districts which would = 43


"Over the water" and other outlying districts on this side of the Mersey = 16.
