‘It worries me, as you could imagine, because it will be used by the press as a negative at some stage,’ he later said.

‘So it made me feel a bit embarrassed, but it was also lovely. I’ve been made to feel so welcome.’

Stubbs - son of former Everton defender, Alan - was one of four loanee debutants brought in by Pardew and he, in particular, looks a canny piece of business. The 21-year-old was the game’s best player, an uncompromising centre-back in the mould of Harry Maguire.

His early resistance allowed Shaquille Pinas to head the opener just after the half hour and Aaron Meijers curled in a free-kick 10 minutes from time.

His smiling face was beaming from the cover of the matchday programme and one seller was left with just a handful an hour before kick-off.

The supporters bar - the only option for a beer amid the surrounds of an industrial estate, motorway and canal - amounted to little more than a wooden hut atop a grassy knoll, but the plastic cups were golden and gassy to the brim and, even before the victory that was to unfold, the locals were happy.
