Temple made his Everton debut as centre-forward in 1957. After playing a few seasons as inside forward, in 1961 he was moved to left wing by Harry Catterick. In his first season as a winger he scored 10 goals in 17 matches.

In 1966 Temple famously scored the winner in one of the greatest FA Cup Finals of all time - Everton's 3-2 victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

The following year he was transferred to Preston North End for £35,000. He later joined Wigan Athletic. Between 1957 and 1967 Temple made 276 Everton appearances, scoring 84 goals for the blues.
