The versatile England international arrived at Everton from Manchester United in 2005. Phil Neville won three Premiership Titles, three FA Cup winner's medals and a Champions League winner's medal during his time at Old Trafford. Neville was a consistent performer for the Blues during his first couple of seasons and earned a recall to the England squad from Coach Steve McLaren too. Blues' boss David Moyes then made him his skipper at the start of 2007 and Neville has gone on to become one of Moyes' most senior players. At home across the back four or in a holding midfield role, Neville is seen as Mr. Reliable for Everton. Born in Bury in 1977, Neville's sporting career could have taken a very different path if he had chosen cricket over football - he excelled as a youngster at Lancashire Cricket Club and broke batting records set by Michael Atherton. It is hoped Neville breaks more records with Everton before too long and leads the Blues to more silverware.
