Howard Kendall is a member of the LMA Hall of Fame.
In management, he is particularly remembered for his first spell in charge of Everton.
Under Kendall, Everton enjoyed the most successful period in their history, claiming two League titles, an FA Cup and a European trophy in the space of four years, at a time when the rivalry on Merseyside was at it's most enthralling. It is fair to say that had English teams not been banned from playing in Europe, he would have added European honours to his glittering array of titles.
As a manager, Kendall managed over 600 games home and abroad for Blackburn Rovers, Everton, Athletic Bilbao, Manchester City, Everton, Xanthi, Notts County, Sheffield United,Everton and Ethnikos Piraeus.
As a player, Kendall began his career with Preston North End in 1961. He played in the 1964 FA Cup Final against West Ham United which made him at the time, the youngest player to appear in the final.
In March 1967, Kendall joined Everton for £85,000 and moved into midfield with Alan Ball and Colin Harvey. The trio gained the nickname "The Holy Trinity". Kendall was an integral part of the Everton side that won the Football League First Division in the 1969–70 season. He would also go on to captain the club.
He began his coaching career with Stoke City, as a player/coach in February 1978. Kendall played a pivotal role in the 1978–79 season when Stoke won promotion to the First Division.
He represented Preston North End, Everton, Birmingham City, Stoke City, Blackburn Rovers and Everton during his playing days.
In 2005, Kendall was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame.
Kendall, remains the last Englishman to win a title in Europe, leading Everton to success in the Cup Winners' Cup in 1985.
