Seamus Coleman : From Killybegs To Everton
A recent feature by Sky Sports News About Seamus Coleman and his remarkable journey to becoming a star premier league player...
Everton Magazine (March 2014)
To celebrate the Blues' links with the Emerald Isle, the March edition of the Everton Magazine has a distinctly Irish feel.
As well as exclusive interviews and features with the quartet of cover stars, Republic of Ireland internationals Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy, Aiden McGeady and Darron Gibson, there's also a feature looking back to May 1973, when Goodison Park hosted a Northern Ireland Home International match against England

Another Reason to Join ESCNI...
Yesterday, we spent several hours creating and publishing website, text, Twitter and FaceBook messages in a determined attempt to prevent our members from booking flights for two significant home games (Arsenal and Man Utd) that, even though they have been selected for television, are still very much subject to change. We do this, because we know how expensive it is to have to change flights at a later date. Currently, the flight change fee (per passenger, per flight) is £35 plus the difference in price between the cost of the original flight booked and the cost of the flight at the time the change is made (no refund will be made if the cost of the flight is lower at the time of the change).
However, for these messages to be effective, this work needs to be done immediately and not just later, whenever we could be bothered to getting around to it.
We hope that our members (and any outsiders) appreciate the commitment and dedication of the ESCNI Committee. In return, the Committee appreciate that, without the members' membership fees, we would not be able to fund the services that we do provide.
In response to some inaccurate and misleading statements recently made on social media, ESCNI would issue the following clarification for the benefit of its members...
In an effort to encourage people to join our club, and not just to avail of our services for big match tickets, ESCNI has (for some years) imposed a surcharge for match tickets supplied for non-members. This surcharge goes towards the cost of providing the service to the non-member and, also, the general running costs of the club. In particular, this has significantly helped ESCNI to maintain its adult membership fee at £15 per annum since it was founded in 1986.
However, there is no such surcharge for members as any postage costs are already covered by their membership fee.
Currently, the surcharge for non-member tickets is £5 for an adult and £3 for a junior/senior.
Control of Match Tickets
The Committee would remind members that with regard to the control of match tickets ordered by, and issued through ESCNI, the club's Rule 35 states that "should any successful member subsequently be unable to attend the game, the match ticket must first be offered back to the Club before being disposed of in some manner by the member in question".
Remember, by reselling those tickets independently, you may well be depriving another ESCNI member of the opportunity of a match ticket.
Please also note that, in the event of this rule being contravened, the match tickets will be officially cancelled and will become void. Furthermore, the member will be subject to our club's internal disciplinary procedures.
The Committee has issued an important statement about the running of this club.
