The youngsters were nominated by schools in the Anfield/Breckfield area, the Club’s SweeperZone Groups, local Community Centres and youngsters participating in the Club’s range of community and family projects.


Over 200 people attended an evening of celebration in the Shankly Suite at Anfield to see the winners pick up their Awards from Ian Ayre, Managing Director of Liverpool Football Club and first team players Jonjo Shelvey and Jay Spearing. 


Ian Ayre, Managing Director of Liverpool Football Club said: “These Awards recognise the valuable contribution young people make to their families, communities and to society as a whole.  The Club has hosted these worthwhile Awards for the last ten years and is delighted to be involved with exceptional local young people.”


Local Councillor Brian Dowling commented: “I am delighted to support these achievements by our young people who are so critical to society’s future success be it in business, community, sport or politics.”
