Everton legend Joe Royle and newly appointed director of football Steve Walsh have helped to launch the new season of The Everton Business Club.

More than 100 Evertonians joined the pair along with the Club’s CEO Robert Elstone at the event space and conference hall inside the Royal Liver Building.

The Blues Chief Executive welcomed the guests to the event and spoke about the vision for the future of the Club, the loyalty of the workforce at Everton and the importance of investing in your employees.

Steve Walsh and Joe Royle then went onto discuss the recruitment process within the football industry and how scouting has evolved over the years, especially within the Premier League.

The Club offers supporters the chance to network with fellow fans and leading organisations from the across the region throughout the year, providing local companies and individuals the opportunity to mix their love of football with commerce.

Club legend Joe Royle said after the event: “What a great night and how fantastic it was to see so many Blues’ turn out for the Business Club event.

“I wasn’t sure what to expect from the night but what a great way for Evertonians to come together, I know Steve really enjoyed himself too and he received a really warm welcome from everyone in attendance.”

Karen Yates, regional sales development manager, said: “It has been a delight to welcome The Everton Business Club to The Venue for its first event this season.

“The Venue is becoming one of the city’s most sought-after locations for conferences, dinners and networking events and to be chosen by Everton Football Club is an honour.”
