Switching sides - "Crossing the Park"

Despite the huge rivalry, Liverpool have completed more direct transfers with Everton than any other club. Famously, however, Liverpool did not buy directly from Everton between 1959 and 2000, while there was a similar "freeze" in the other direction between 1961 and 1982.

It is often mistakenly claimed that Dave Hickson is the only player to have played for "all three Merseyside clubs". In fact he is the third player, along with John Heydon and Frank Mitchell, to have played for all three Merseyside league clubs still in existence. But we should not forget New Brighton, Football league members from 1923–51, for whom Bill Lacey and Neil McBain played, both having also played for Everton and Liverpool.

And to complete a list of six players who have played for three different Merseyside clubs, John Whitehead also played for Bootle in their one year as a league team (1892-3), before they were replaced in Division 2 by local rivals Liverpool FC. The list below shows transfer dates and fees, where known.
