Everton FC legend Kevin Sheedy dianosed with bowel cancer

EVERTON hero Kevin Sheedy has been diagnosed with bowel cancer.

The 52-year-old former member of Howard Kendall's successful mid-80s side will undergo surgery later this week after the discovery.

Sheedy, who is now a highly-respected coach at Everton's academy, will be away from Finch Farm for a period of time as he recovers from the operation.

The hugely popular Irish international played 369 times for Everton, scoring 97 goals, and is in good spirits as he faces up to treatment for the illness.

“It’s not ideal but I have to remain positive,” he said. “There is a history in the family.”

Kevin also urged anyone with any concerns for their own health to act quickly.

“It’s so important that people don’t ignore the early signs and symptoms and don’t be afraid to consult a GP,” he said. “After a period of rehabilitation I will return to my coaching role at Everton.”

The club has established an email address for supporters to send their messages to Kevin. Email and all messages will be passed to Kevin.
