Pacy right-winger who broke into the Everton team from their junior side, scoring two goals on his debut, before moving on to Preston, where a goal against Spurs in his first appearance at Deepdale set him up well with the fans as North End came within an inch of the title. Four years later, they were relegated and he became one of Don Revie's first signings at Leeds. He didn't make much of an impression for the Whites and was soon on his way again. He finished his career in Britain with Wrexham but subsequently played professional football in the Australian leagues.

Brenda Mayers says: now living in Ashton in Makerfield. Wife Brenda, married for 40 yrs. 2 children - Beverley & Glen, 3 grandchildren - Christopher, Daniel & Rebecca. Retired at 60 & is now 67 years old (young!). Plays golf three times a week & for the past 3 years has competed in the Jimmy Tarbuck classic in Portugal - wot a life!!

Bob Moorcroft says: I used to go to Deepdale with my mother to watch Preston North End and Derek mayers was her favourite player. We used to go to the matches with my aunt and my cousin and my mother and her sister had many arguments as to who was the best looking player in the team. Derek was my mother's choice but her sister liked Sammy Taylor who played on the left wing for Preston at that time. I seem to recall Derek having a great game and scoring at least one goal in a match in about 1958 or 1959 when Preston beat Manchester United 4-0. Those were the days!
