Charlie Gee & Cliff Britton joined the club. A remarkable turn around of Everton’s fortunes saw them finish top of the heap again at he end of the 1931/32 season this time as League Division 1 Champions. Archie Clark joining the blues from Luton Town. 1932/33 saw the new Champions slide down the table finishng 11th for that season however they did pick up the FA Cup after a 3-0 victory against Manchester City. That final made Dixie Dean the first British No. 9 as numbers were introduced for the first time on players shirts. Albert Geldard & Billy Cook joined the blues & Joe Mercer made his debut at the end of the season. 1933/34 saw Everton only manage 14th Alex Stevenson & Jackie Coulter were added to the squad. Everton rose up the League Division 1 table to end the 1934/35 season 8th. Tommy Johnson crossed Stanley Park to join Liverpool & Ted Critchley joined Preston North End. 16th Place was all the Blues could manage at the end of the 1935/36 season with Jimmy Dunn leaving Eveton and Jackie Coulter missing the season through injury & the club added Torry Gillick to its ranks for £8,000 from Rangers. This was to prove Dixie Dean’s last season with Everton who finished 17th in 1936/37.
