Mighty McNaught

Mighty McNaught

On this day in 1955, defender Ken McNaught was born.

Ron Saunders paid Everton £200,000 for McNaught’s services in 1977 – and what a bargain he proved to be.

He gradually established himself into an integral first team member and helped Villa win the League Championship of 1981 and the European Cup of 1982 as well as the European Super Cup in 1983, courtesy of victory over Barcelona.

He eventually moved to West Brom but not before making 260 appearances and scoring 13 goals.
