Fans back Everton exodus

Next Story
Everton have won a significant mandate from their fans to press ahead with plans to move to a new ground outside the Liverpool city boundary in nearby Kirkby.

In what became an increasingly bitter wrangle with fans´ pressure groups and the city council, Everton staged a ballot of around 36,000 fans and the club agreed to abide by the result of the vote, which was announced by the Electoral Reform Services.

The vote revealed on the club website today showed 59.27% of fans voted in favour of the move, with 40.73% saying no.
