PICS: A wandering cat steals the show in Everton’s FA Cup win over Dagenham and Redbridge

Simon Lloyd

Everton hosted Dagenham and Redbridge for their third round FA Cup tie, and after their midweek League Cup exploits, several of their stars were rested for the game.

Romelu Lukaku wasn’t in the squad after an injury in the game against City and the likes of Gerard Deulofeu and Ross Barkley were benched for the game, presenting others with a chance to shine.

But despite a comfortable 2-0 win, the headlines weren’t taken by any of Roberto Martinez’s players.

Instead, a wandering cat was the talk of the terraces after wandering on to the Goodison turf.


You can just about make out the cat at the far end of the pitch on the video below.

And it’s not even the first time this season that there’s been a feline pitch invader at Goodison.
