Description - Sharpy by Graeme Sharp
Graeme Sharp is quite simply an Everton legend. Second only to the immortal Dixie Dean as the club s top goalscorer, he netted 159 goals in over 400 appearances for the Toffees. harp became a Goodison Park hero during the halcyon days of the 80s, when Everton won two League Championships, the FA Cup, the European Cup-Winners Cup and came within an ace of a historic treble in 1984 85. Partnered first by his boyhood idol Andy Gray and then by England hero Gary Lineker, Sharp established a reputation as one of the finest strikers in the world and notched up 12 caps for his national side, Scotland. Although his eventual departure from Everton left a sour taste in his mouth, he continued to score goals for Oldham Athletic before becoming manager of the Lancashire outfit. But off-the-field frustrations blighted his tenure in the hot seat, and a spell as a manager in non-league football brought the curtain down on a magnificent career that ended with triumph for Bangor City in the Welsh Cup. n Sharpy- My Story, the former Everton star reveals all- the highs, the lows, the big names, the victories, the disappointments, the heartache, the lot!
