Liverpool-born David Johnson always seemed destined to have an impact in his home city – and he went on to cross the Merseyside divide in a way very few players have managed.

For a long time, Johnson, who has died at the age of 71, was the only man to score a winning goal for both Everton and Liverpool in a Merseyside derby, with Peter Beardsley also achieving the feat when he scored for the Toffees in 1992.

Known as ‘Doc’, Johnson had a knack of netting important goals as he also bagged on his Everton debut, his FA Cup, League Cup and European bows and on his maiden England appearance, and is remembered fondly by the clubs either side of Stanley Park.

The medals flowed as Liverpool were the best side in Europe in the late 1970s and early 1980s, with four league titles and three European Cups among many honours that Johnson claimed.

He had two spells with the Toffees, but was far more successful in six years at Anfield, winning four league titles, two League Cups, three European Cups and the UEFA Super Cup in one of Liverpool’s most dominant periods.

After a brief spell as a player-manager at Barrow in the mid-1980s, he retired and returned to Anfield, hosting in the club’s executive lounges and working as a radio pundit.

He returned to Everton in the summer of 1982 for another two years before his career wound down with spells at Manchester City, Preston and time in the United States and Malta.
