Liverpool Football Club legends shoot for Phuket

March 7, 2011

Liverpool Legends, a team made up of ex Liverpool Football Club players, are set to play two friendly games against The Legends of Thailand. The first match is scheduled for June 15th at Bangkok’s Yamaha stadium followed by a second game at Surakul Stadium in Phuket Town.

Fans of Liverpool Football Club in Thailand are gearing up for a very important charity game in Phuket this June.

Liverpool Legends, a team made up of ex Liverpool Football Club players, are set to play two friendly games against The Legends of Thailand. The first match is scheduled for June 15th at Bangkok’s Yamaha stadium.

Players will then travel south to Phuket to play a second game at Surakul Stadium in Phuket Town on June 18th.

The Liverpool Legends team includes players Ian Rush, John Barnes, Jason McAteer, Steve McManaman, Robbie Fowler, Phil Neal, Bruce Grobbelaar, Jan Molby and Alan Kennedy.

The Thailand Legends team will be led by striker Piyapong Pue-on.

“Our aim is to establish an annual series of events featuring some of the great players of the past,” commented Cris Rosenbergs, CEO of Powerair Management Group, who are organising the tour.

In a recent promotional visit to Phuket, footballer Alan Kennedy gave interviews at Phuket FM Radio Station and visited The Youth Football Home Foundation, where the money raised at the events will be donated.

Based in Phuket, The Youth Football Home Foundation was set up to provide education and training for orphaned and destitute boys throughout Thailand.

The charity, which can house up to thirty two boys, was founded by German businessman, Henrik Lorenz in May 2007. Henrik was a first division goalkeeper in Hong Kong during his younger days and, as the founding trustee of the charity, provided all the funds to build The Youth Football Home.

He also built the Katja House; a charity which cares for street children in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Fans of Liverpool Football Club will also have the opportunity to meet their idols when the squad visits schools and shopping centres across Phuket and Bangkok. Their goal is to raise over £100,000 (5 million Baht) for the Foundation.

The Youth Football Home Foundation will be holding coaching sessions where young players can receive training and tips from the ex-Liverpool footballers.
