Welcome to our weekly update on the 30th of August. It has been a week to remember. Many members have been given the opportunity to make memories that last a lifetime.
Last Saturday was meant to be our day trip to Glenbuck, the birthplace of our legendary manager Bill Shankly. As this trip had to be cancelled, we managed to arrange a private viewing of the Premier League Trophy and a stadium tour for the members concerned, full details can be found here.
In conjunction with the Owen McVeigh Foundation those junior members, that could, had a day to remember on Saturday too. They had a visit from Jamie Webster and a Mad Hatters tea party, Full details can be found here. If you can try and support Jamie as he has just released his first album. Here is a message from Jürgen regarding it.

Finally tonight on BBC2 there is what promises to be a very good documentary. Liverpool FC: the 30 year wait. The following preview is from the BBC website.
"Documentary examining the story of Liverpool’s quest to return to the top of English football by winning the Premier League. It is a revealing insight into why the club fell away after their domination of football in the 80s - how the club’s identity was shaped by both the tragedies of Heysel and Hillsborough, the struggle to keep up with the rapidly changing world of football, and the Jurgen Klopp revolution that has returned them back to the summit of the game.
Narrated by Liverpool fan Jason Isaacs, this is a story told by the people who shaped the club we see today, including contributions from managers Jurgen Klopp, Rafa Benitez, Roy Evans, Gerard Houllier and Brendan Rodgers, chief executives Rick Parry and Ian Ayre, key players in Liverpool’s history, including Mohamed Salah, Jordan Henderson, Virgil Van Dijk, Robbie Fowler, John Barnes and Michael Owen, and the man who revolutionised the club, owner John Henry."
