On Tuesday 10th December, Everton's first team players, lead by Duncan Ferguson, visited Alder Hey for their annual Christmas visit.
Before the Blues headed out onto the wards to spread some Christmas cheer, there was a surprise in store for one of Everton's players...
9 year old Emilia is a patient at Alder Hey and, after she had major surgery on her hips and legs here earlier this year, she got a visit from her favourite player - Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
During the visit, Emilia promised Dominic that the next time they meet, she will be walking.
Well, true to her word, Emilia surprised Dominic by walking out as the team were posing for photos. Click play on the video to watch the amazing moment Emilia surprises Dominic.
The players then headed out onto wards 3A, 3B and 3C and did an amazing job of putting smiles on the faces of patients, families and staff. You can see more from the visit on our Twitter profile @AlderHey.
