Agree with Maltablue David Unsworth played for Villa for a very short time [something like a month] before returning to Everton. He went on to play for various other teams West Ham Huddersfield etc. Moved to Preston N E as coach and as Caretaker Manager[ twice] back to Everton as U21 coach. Was appointed Caretaker Manager when Roberto Martinez was sacked and has now reverted to a Coaching Role at Everton.
Pretty sure that he was born in Chorley Lancs
