“I was six years old in the playground at school playing football on a cold but normal morning,” recalls Evertonian Hayden Jillions.
“Until, that was, I saw for some reason my dad turn up at the school gates with a big smile on his face.
“I went over in confusion and in his hand were two tickets for Everton v Southampton. I can just remember jumping up and down.
“One thing I will never ever forget. Everton at home. Nothing beats it. Nothing ever will.”
As part of our 2018/19 Season Ticket campaign ‘home’, we’ve been asking fans for their favourite memories of roaring on the Blues at the Grand Old Lady.
Hayden is one of hundreds of fans to submit their stories, with the very best already featuring on our dedicated ‘home’ Tumblr site here.
We've also brought you the memories of a host of Toffees heroes past and present, including Seamus Coleman, Francis Jeffers, Morgan Feeney, Steven Pienaar, Wayne Rooney, Paul Gascoigne and, most recently, Andrei Kanchelskis.
And it’s not too late to add your own tale. Whether it's a particular moment of on-pitch magic, an unexpected encounter, a bizarre event, a great goal, or simply one that means something special to you, let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and your story could appear on evertonfc.com just like Hayden’s.
