Robert Parker moved to Everton from Rangers for a fee of £1,500 in 1913. He was the top goal scorer for Everton in the 1913/14 season and the divisions’ highest scorer in the 1914/15 season as Everton won the First Division. He returned from the First World War with a bullet lodged in his back and couldn’t repeat that form and was sold to Nottingham Forest in 1921.
