Everton was formed in 1878, as St Domingo F.C., to allow people in the local parish to play sport outside of the summer cricket season. In 1879 the club was renamed Everton. The club has a long standing rivalry with fellow Merseyside club Liverpool. Everton originally played at Anfield, the ground now associated firmly with Liverpool. Liverpool was actually formed after a dispute over rent caused Everton to move to Goodison Park which has a capacity of 40,216. In recent years Everton have been very much in the shadow of Liverpool. In 1925 Everton signed Dixie Deans who set the long running goal scoring record for 60 goals in 39 league matches in 1927-28. Everton are one of only three clubs to have been founder members of both the Football League in 1888 and the Premier League in 1992. The club are one of the most successful in English football history, having spent more years in the top flight than any other English club. The team has also enjoyed considerable success in terms of major trophies such as the League Championship, the FA Cup and the UEFA Cup Winner's Cup, being in the top five for English clubs to have won such honours.
