Liverpool FC is deeply saddened by the passing of former director Terry Smith, aged 87.

Terry, who became a board member at Liverpool in 1992, passed away on Sunday following a short illness. 

Terry was a lifelong Liverpool supporter and succeeded Bob Paisley as a director at Anfield. He served on the club’s board for 15 years. 

A former journalist, Terry founded Radio City as Liverpool’s first commercial radio station in 1974 and retired from the station in 2013. He then became chairman of the Empire Theatre Trust in 2015.

The thoughts of everyone at Liverpool FC are with Terry’s family and friends at this sad time.

Rest in peace, Terry Smith.
