EFC Visit to ESCNI (2010)

Graeme Sharp & Robert Elstone Graeme Sharp & Robert Elstone

On Thursday, 29th April 2010, ESCNI were proud to welcome an official delegation of Everton Football Club to the Radisson Blu Hotel (located in the old gasworks site off the Ormeau Road) in Belfast for a a lively and forthright fans forum. The delegation comprised Robert Elstone (Chief Executive Officer), Graeme Sharp (Fans' Liaison Officer), Darren Griffiths (Media and Publications Manager) and Hollie Costigan (Marketing Services Manager).

The night started with an entertaining staged interview with Darren asking the questions and Graeme answering, quickly followed by a Question and Answer session with Graeme. One of the memorable moments included Graeme telling us all about when Andy gray left Everton Football Club (in tears!).

After a quick interval, where everyone got the chance to talk and pose for photos, Robert Elstone answered questions from Darren and then from the ESCNI members themselves. His honest appraisal of the situation, and his willingness to seek resolutions to issues from the fans, was well received by the questioning members.


The fantastic night (with over 150 members in attendance) ended in a raffle with ESCNI members winning a signed David Moyes training shirt and a signed Everton Home Shirt.

Congratulations to everyone who attended and represented our club in such a positive light. Also, a big thank you to the ESCNI Committee for organising this event at such short notice, and to Everton FC for spending the time and expense to send their delegation over.
