Harvey Elliott, Abdi Sharif and Sepp van den Berg were the latest players from Liverpool's Academy to pay a visit to Alder Hey hospital on Monday.

The players joined the club’s head of education and welfare Phil Roscoe in popping in to see some young patients at the world-famous West Derby children’s hospital.

It followed a visit last week from another group comprising Curtis Jones, Liam Coyle, Herbie Kane and Vitezslav Jaros.

The players chatted with young patients in the wards and handed out gifts.

Sharif said: “It’s always good to see the kids and hopefully put smiles on their faces. A few of them had been in the hospital for quite a while so it’s nice to give them some time and give them a little different day.

“I’ve been to Alder Hey a few times now with the Academy and it’s always good to go back, especially being a local lad myself.”
