Problem is, the weather didn't cooperate with his plans, as Everton's match against Crystal Palace was postponed due to inclement weather.

Not all was lost, though. Everton, in a touch of class, sought him out to make sure that his night wasn't a total loss. 

 

@stu_ithilien @ric_wee Don't worry Stu - we're already well across it. And @ric_wee has been taken to the dressing room to meet the players.
