A fan has told a lovely story about Bill Kenwright going over and above in response to a young Everton supporter’s letter.
The unnamed fan told the story near the end of a controversial week for the Goodison Park club after they were forced to ban a supporter who hit Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes while holding a baby during the sides’ Europa League group fixture on Thursday.
Everton have received their fair share of criticism for this – as it came during a melee between several players from both teams.
But this story should serve as a nice reminder that clubs can do an awful lot of good while they’re being criticised for the bad things.
According to the fan, his son sent a letter to Kenwright asking what it takes to run a football club – and the Toffees chairman’s response was brilliant, inviting the little man into the club to see what it’s all about:

That’s pure class from Kenwright – and something which should rightly see him and the club praised.
Ronald Koeman’s side will be back on the pitch for the first time since Thursday’s events when they take on Arsenal at Goodison Park tomorrow afternoon.
