Liverpool FC today revealed the names of the 18 fans who have been selected to head up the club's inaugural Supporters' Committee.
The Reds unveiled plans in January for a new supporter consultation group and invited fans to apply to liaise with senior Club staff and discuss the issues and ask the questions that most affect them and the fans they represent.
The Committee will meet four times a season, with Liverpool's owners present where possible.
A seven-person selection panel featuring Ian Ayre, Ian Callaghan, Karen Gill (Bill Shankly's granddaughter), Dave Boyle, Sue Johnson, Jack Stopforth and John Bishop was drawn up to review every application and jointly agree on the best 18 candidates for the Committee.
