The Sydney-native was a mainstay at Goodison Park (2004-12) during the bulk of the David Moyes era (2002-13), making 226-appearances in the Premier League while hitting 56-goals and 23-assists during a highly successful spell on Merseyside that saw Everton finish in the European places on multiple occasions.

As a father, Cahill can now boast that both of his sons are on track to build professional careers of their own. Apart from Shae progressing through the Everton set-up, his other son Kyah – 18 – recently joined the academy set-up at CD Leganes after his stint with Macclesfield Town.
