A toffee tribute to our Beryl?

IS this an internet wind-up, is somebody hokey-cokeying up the Everton Football Club online shop… or has the free-school sponsoring team really named its new range of training tops after famous scousers? See the online catalogue as it appears on screen: you can buy an Arthur Askey cotton mix training t-shirt and a Leonard Rossiter 1/4 zip pre-match warm-up sweatshirt. You can also buy a sexy Cattrall (Kim) sleeveless training top. And there’s also apparently a nod to a writer who seemed to love her adopted home in Camden Town more than the place of her birth, Dame Beryl Bainbridge. She was honoured by the Booker Prize foundation posthumously – why not by the Toffees too?
