Everton owner Bill Kenwright faced a barrage of criticism at the club´s annual general meeting on Tuesday night over the plans to leave Goodison Park and move to a new stadium in nearby Kirkby.

Kenwright, also club chairman, walked into a hail of objections from a packed meeting, and was accused by one shareholder of "being the man who murdered the soul of Everton". He was also told by another shareholder "you will be the death of the club".

Kenwright told shareholders: "I do listen to the fans, I don´t want to leave Goodison either. But we have had no confirmation of the cost of the Scotland Road site, and we have also been told that it is not big enough for a 50,000 seater stadium."
