Lewis Dobbin expressed his admiration for teammate Ben Godfrey, drawing inspiration from him as he navigates his first full season as a Premier League player with Everton.

Originally from Stoke, Dobbin joined Everton at the age of 11 and spent the 2022/23 season on loan at Derby County, where he made 54 appearances and contributed 11 goals (five goals, six assists)

across all competitions for the League One club.

Upon returning to Merseyside in the summer, Dobbin participated in Everton’s Men’s Senior Team

pre-season camp at Lake Geneva, catching the eye of manager Sean Dyche with his performances.

Although he has been a regular presence in Everton’s Premier League squads this season,

Dobbin has had to patiently wait for consistent playing time due to stiff competition in wide positions.

However, he has made the most of his opportunities, notably scoring his first

senior-team goal with a well-struck left-footed shot in a 2-0 victory over Chelsea in December.

Reflecting on his season so far, Dobbin expressed enjoyment at being part of a Premier League squad and emphasized his desire to seize every chance he gets to play.

Dobbin’s positive attitude has earned praise from Dyche throughout the season,

despite the challenges of waiting for opportunities.

He cited teammate Ben Godfrey as a source of motivation, noting Godfrey’s commitment and professionalism in training, which has earned him a regular starting position in Everton’s recent matches.

Looking ahead to Everton’s crucial Premier League match against Crystal Palace,

Dobbin emphasized the importance of staying focused and blocking out external distractions.

Despite reports of Palace appointing a new manager, Dobbin stressed the team’s internal focus on

themselves and their determination to secure positive results.

He concluded by emphasizing the team’s unity and determination to fight for each other, regardless of external circumstances.
