 The History of Everton Football Kit   
Everton FC Kit   

Although Everton may be overshadowed by their most illustrious neighbours Liverpool, the club still has a fine pedigree and is one of the likely teams to qualify for Europe this season. While at present Everton are not capable of winning the league, and may not do so for a while, they are still the fifth most successful club in English football, amassing a trophy haul that includes nine League titles and five FA Cup wins.

Everton Football Club was founded as St Domingo FC in 1892 as a church football team; they were renamed Everton FC a year later as those from the surrounding areas wanted to play. The club was one of the founder members of the English League in 1888, and stormed to their first title just two years after its inception in 1890. While Everton won plenty of trophies in the 20th century, they have not done so well in recent years- their last major trophy came in 1995, when they won the FA Cup.

Everton started off as a football team wearing a home kit which had blue and white stripes; although they did experiment with many other colours and styles. After a bit of tinkering the club switched to an all black kit, before a red diagonal stripe was added to make it easier on the eye. Soon after the move in 1892 to Goodison Park, the club switched to a light pink shirt matched with blue shorts, and then had a dark purple shirt matched with blue shorts. The combination of the dark blue shirt and white shorts that they use today was first seen during the 1901-02 season and after fans appeared to like the kit it has been kept ever since. The Toffees did switch to a lighter shade of blue a few times in their history (like during the 1997-98 season) but as this has proved unpopular with fans it is hard to see them doing so any time soon.

For their away kits, Everton in the past used to wear an amber shirt matched with blue shorts, however in recent times this has changed. The club's supporters have seen their team wear white, black, yellow and even grey kits on its travels during their history; the away kit they sport today is comprised of a white shirt and black shorts. As for the crest shown on the club's shirts, it is a symbol for the 'Beacon'- a famous tower seen at the centre of the town. The Beacon was originally used as a prison, and while it is not in use today it is still an important part for Everton's history. This crest was also emblazoned with the club's motto; Nil Satis Nisi Optimum, or 'Nothing but the Best is Good Enough' in English.

With thousands of loyal fans and quality players like Andrew Johnson, Mikel Arteta and Joseph Yobo in their ranks, Everton's kits will always be in demand, no matter how the team are doing. Fans will not have to worry about their team doing poorly however; the club has started off the season well and have already started moving closer towards the valued European places. Although the club may suffer during the African Cup of Nations, especially as a large part of their squad is African, they will be sure to compete heavily at the top; and with a bit of luck, this team could go far this season.
