Total Pre-Football League Appearances & Goals

Everton were founder members of the Football League, which began in 1888/89, and began
playing FA Cup matches a season earlier in 1887/88.
Aside from the 1887/88 FA Cup, prior to 1888/89 the club participated only in Friendly matches and local Cup competitions.
Details are inevitably sketchy and incomplete.
The stats for the pre-Football League era are as complete as can be but, given the
passage of time and the incomplete information available, there will inevitably be errors and omissions.
The FA Cup match, appearance and goal statistics are counted in official records.
The other match, appearance and goal statistics are not counted in any official records.

Only the players in bold also played in Football League or FA Cup matches for Everton.
The rest played just in pre-Football League games for the club; they never played in a Football League or FA Cup match for Everton.
