GRAEME Sharp is the latest Everton legend set to attend the unveiling of a plaque in celebration of Ellesmere Port footballing great Joe Mercer.

The blue PFA plaque for the former England, Everton and Arsenal star, who enjoyed a trophy-laden playing career before managing Manchester City to both domestic and European success, will be unveiled at the front of the town's Civic Hall on November 18.

Football writer Mark Metcalf, who has worked in conjunction with the PFA on the project to honour Mercer, revealed to The Standard back in May that ex-Toffees hero Peter Reid would be one of the special guests at the eagerly-anticipated unveiling.

And it has now been confirmed that Everton legend Sharp – second only to Dixie Dean in terms of goals scored for the club – will also be in attendance.

Sharp, who played at Goodison Park for more than 10 years winning several major honours, will be at the unveiling as a representative of Mercer's boyhood club.

Back in May, we reported that Mercer's granddaughter Susan Lea was "honoured" that the fitting tribute to her grandfather would take pride of place in his hometown.
