The Liverpool FC Supporters' Committee has successfully concluded its search for three new representatives in the categories of international supporters (east), away supporters, and families and young people.

During recent months, a selected panel shortlisted the applications for each position before fans were invited to vote for the person they believed would best represent their constituency via the club's official website.

On Tuesday, the committee announced the three successful candidates: Matthew Selby will represent international supporters (east); Anna Burgess will represent away supporters; Laura Woodcock will represent families and young people.

Counting of the votes was overseen by Kevin Milles, chief executive of the Football Supporters' Federation, and the trio are now eager to begin working with the committee.

Matthew said: "I am so happy, being part of committees is something I enjoy, and to be part of this is just a dream come true."

Anna said: "I am delighted to be given this opportunity and really looking forward to working with the club and also the fans as the elected representative."

Laura said: "I am delighted to be voted onto the Supporters' Committee; as a lifelong Liverpool supporter, a parent and a promoter of youth football, I am thoroughly looking forward to being the link between Liverpool FC and the supporters to provide the best experience for families and young people and help build a strong connection between the two."

Karen Gill, the honorary president of the committee, welcomed the new recruits too. She commented: "On behalf of the LFC Supporters' Committee, I'd like to extend a warm welcome to our three new members.

"We are all looking forward to working together in the future. I'm certain that they will be a positive addition to the team and that the enthusiasm, skills and experience they bring will be great assets in helping achieve the goals of the committee."
