TWO stands at Goodison Park are to be renamed in honour of a pair of Everton heroes.

The Gwladys Street End will be renamed the Howard Kendall Gwladys Street End and, at the opposite end of the stadium, the Park Stand will be renamed the Sir Philip Carter Park Stand, honouring the contribution made by the club’s most successful chairman who was one of the founding fathers of the Premier League.

A statement from EFC said the two stands, which "poignantly" face each other, "will be known as such for as long as the club remains at Goodison Park."

If Mayor Joe Anderson gets his way, that shouldn't be for too long. He has already revealed plans to relocate the club within the next three years.

Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright said: “Howard Kendall and Sir Philip Carter are two of the greatest Evertonians of all time. Standing firm together through one of our lowest periods, they remained proudly united to lead us through the most successful period our great club has ever enjoyed. It is this strength through togetherness that underpinned our desire to name these two stands in their honour at the same time. Two ends of Goodison, representing two of its most loved and loyal servants, facing each other and standing together once more.”

Meanwhile, EFC has revealed its new away kit, which looks like this.
