PFA Footballer of the Year 1985
Peter Reid (born 20 June 1956) is an English football manager, pundit and retired player. A defensive midfielder in his playing days, Reid enjoyed a long and successful career. He built his reputation as one of England's brightest midfield talents of the time at Bolton Wanderers, before signing for Everton in 1982. It was there that he enjoyed the most fruitful spell of his career, as he helped the club win domestic and European honours, including the Football League twice. He was voted as the PFA Players' Player of the Year in 1985 and came fourth in the World Soccer Player of the Year award, behind Michel Platini, Preben Elkjær and Diego Maradona. He also received his first senior England call-up that year, and represented his country at the 1986 FIFA World Cup and 1988 UEFA European Championship. He won 13 caps in total. Reid joined Queens Park Rangers in 1989, but moved on to Manchester City a year later to begin his managerial career.
He made 167 appearances (eight as substitute) for Everton. In 2006, Reid was awarded with the 'Everton Giant' accolade. Reid won 13 caps for England. Given his chance by the injuries to other players, he became the linchpin of the England team in the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico.
The Peter Reid shirt is made in halved colours of his club and country, wire woven gold and silver official Everton badge matched with the official badge of England, the shirt has the Player signature digitised and embroidered on the shirt between the badges, the shirt is mounted on gold board within an archival quality sealed frame above a printed player profile personally signed by the Footballer of the Year, two photographs one portraying him in match action, the other a portrait of him receiving the PFA trophy.
