Half-a-dozen members of the local legends team set to play in the 'Celebration of the 96' charity match at Anfield later this month prepared for the game with a special training session at Melwood on Monday.

Led by former Liverpool managers Kenny Dalglish and Roy Evans, the group - which included Alan Kennedy, Jason McAteer, Jan Molby and Ronnie Whelan - were put through their paces at the Reds' training complex.

The session was scheduled ahead of the 90-minute friendly encounter against international legends on Monday, April 21, which forms part of a full day to commemorate the 96 fans who lost their lives at Hillsborough.

The line-up of players confirmed so far to be participating in the match was revealed on Tuesday and can be viewed in full by scrolling down the page.

All proceeds generated by the event, which will also feature community football sessions on the pitch with first-team, Academy and Ladies players, will be donated to the Hillsborough Family Support Group and the Liverpool FC Foundation.

Tickets for the occasion are priced at £15 for adults and £5 for children, and remain available for purchase by clicking here.
