To commemorate the Club’s formation day, pupils at Four Oaks primary in Anfield gave Reds’ legend, Gary McAllister a very special history lesson.

A class of year 6 pupils performed a short play for the Liverpool FC Ambassador, bringing to life the infamous story of Liverpool FC’s formation.

“Seeing the children perform the story of how the Club was formed really brought it to life. It was a history lesson like no other and all in the shadow of Anfield. “I think it’s great that kids try to understand where the Club came from and that there was one man, John Houlding that started it all off.”

– Gary McAllister, Liverpool FC ambassador

The Club will mark its official 125th birthday on 3rd June 2017 - the day the Club was officially recognised by the Board of Trade in 1892.

This year 125th birthday celebrations will be kicked off with the release of a special anniversary LFC crest which will be revealed on next season’s kit in April.
