Woke up this morning to find out that former Everton skipper Gary Speed had been found dead in his home in Chester at the age of 42. I’m absolutely shocked and devastated to hear this. I remember the day Everton signed Gary Speed, a boyhood Blue, from Leeds and being so chuffed. Although his time at Everton was short lived and he left Everton under not so great circumstances he was still loved at the club, and never gave any less than 101% every time he put the Royal Blue on.
I was devastated the day Gary left Everton for Newcastle, I’m even more devastated knowing he is no longer with us.
Rest In Peace Gary Speed
