Welcome again to Then and Now, where each week we compare images of Merseyside landmarks, buildings, streets and events from bygone days with how they look today.

Our main image this week shows the Everton attacking quartet of Alex Scott, Fred Pickering, Alex Young and Derek Temple having a chat on the terraces at Goodison Park after training. It’s March 1964.

Everton’s next match was a Division One home game against Nottingham Forest which they won 6-1. It was their highest score of the season.

England international forward Pickering scored a hat-trick on the day with two more goals coming from right back Dennis Stevens and the sixth from fellow forward Roy Vernon.

Everton, under manager Harry Catterick, finished the season in third spot with 52 points. They were five points behind champions Liverpool.
