On April 24, 2018, Seán Cox travelled from his home in Ireland to watch his beloved Reds at Anfield.
That night, Sean suffered life-changing injuries when he was the victim of an unprovoked attack outside the stadium ahead of the Champions League semi-final against Roma.
The club, fans, and his local community all have come together over the last 12 months in support of Seán and his family, raising vital funds for his care and sending messages of love and encouragement in his recovery.
Earlier this month, the club hosted a special charity game at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, which saw LFC Legends and a Republic of Ireland XI come together in aid of the Seán Cox Rehabilitation Trust. Thousands of fans turned out to support Seán and watch the Reds come from behind to beat a Republic of Ireland XI 2-1.
Back in October, during the LFC’s Premier League fixture against Cardiff City, the club and fans also joined forces to show their support for Seán. Volunteers from Liverpool FC and Spirit of Shankly staged a bucket collection at Anfield, which was match-funded by LFC Foundation. The club and its players are also supporting the appeal privately.
Twelve months on, our hearts and prayers are with Seán and his family as he continues his rehabilitation journey.
