Reds and United share Shield

14 August 1965

Liverpool shared the Charity Shield for the second consecutive year following another 2-2 draw in English football's most important friendly.

Manchester United were the opponents, with the fixture played out in front of 48,502 spectators at Old Trafford due to the fact Matt Busby's men had clinched the title three months earlier.

On the back of their first FA Cup triumph, Liverpool held their own in front of a hostile crowd, with skipper Ron Yeats and Willie Stevenson finding the back of the net.

It proved to be the start of another memorable season for the red half of Merseyside, with a seventh League Championship trophy finding its way back to Anfield come May 1966, and a European Cup Winners' Cup final appearance to boot.
