LFC’s Red Neighbours programme gave pupils from a local primary school a VIP experience at Anfield they will never forget during Wednesday night's Premier League clash with Bournemouth.

The young fans, from Florence Melly Community Primary School, were invited to watch the Reds from an executive box in the new Main Stand as part of the programme’s focus to create memorable experiences for young people.

Nine-year-old Macy Clegg, who was attending her first ever football match, said: "It was one of the best experiences ever.

"We got to go in a luxury box and I was amazed by the stadium. LFC were so generous to give us this opportunity."

Deacon Taylor, aged 8, added: "This was my first time at Anfield too, and I was so excited to see the team play. I loved it, it was just amazing."

Fellow pupil, Ellie Myers said: "I loved being in the box to watch the game. I was amazed by everything and loved every minute of it.

"I'm grateful to LFC for giving me the opportunity to attend my very first match – I had the best time ever!"

The Red Neighbours programme supports local residents and schools in the Anfield community, focusing on four key areas: food poverty and education; support for the elderly community; encouraging a physically active community; and creating memorable experiences for young people.
