Everton - Port of Spain
Louis Platt, Wirral.

Recently, I discovered that there was another team called 'Everton' who were based in the Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago.

The only successful spell they had was in the late 1920s to 1930s, they won the domestic Port of Spain Football League three times in a row (1930, 1931, 1932) and managed to retaining the domestic cup for four years (1929*,1930, 1931, 1932).

*The opposition walked off after two players had been sent off. Everton were in the lead at the time so the trophy was awarded to Everton.

It seems that soon after their domestic dominance the club ceased to exist. Does anybody know what happened? All I can find is that in 1933 the club were prohibited to play in the domestic league and many of the leading players moved to other teams.

What is the likelihood that the Tobagonian club was, like our Chilean friends, also named after the Liverpool based team?

Some original news stories about Everton:

This is the club Alfred Charles was captain of before getting suspended a year for fighting at a match with Casuals. This probably prompted him to seek a club in England and became the first Trini do so. That pretty much ended the club it seems.
