Strange case of Dean hitting London town.

Byline: GREG O'KEEFFE

GAMES gainst Chelsea have, rather unusually, provided reasons to be cheerful for Bluenoses this season.

But there was a time when wins over the Londonders were routine. In his excellent book, 'Everton Strange But Blue', Toffee stat-king Gavin Buckland recalls the day Dixie Dean put five past Chelsea in the opening 32 minutes.

His preparation for the game? A few pints the night before and a kip in the trainer's room at Goodison.

Evertonians in the capital will also be glad to know the Dixie Dean Story, a unique show narrated by Dean's biographer John Keith, hits London in May. See it at Westminster Kingsway College Theatre on May 21.
