Everton suing farm shop owner


Everton have launched legal action against a farm shop over the use of its name despite the shop being based in a Nottingham­shire village which is also called Everton.

Owner Daniela Troop (46) said: “When I was told about the objection, I cried.

“It was so upsetting and actually quite scary to be up against such a wealthy club,” said Mrs Troop.

Everton have since told Mrs Troop that she can continue to use the name as long as she changes the size and font of her sign. She has yet to accept that offer and has since launched her own legal action.
