Twenty members of 4th Battalion The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment were given a behind-the-scenes tour of Anfield Stadium earlier this month.

The tour was planned by colour sergeant John Grimes, who returned to Anfield having led the team out ahead of the Reds’ Remembrance fixture against Huddersfield in October.

After taking in the new state-of-the-art home dressing room, the club's special visitors had the chance to touch the ‘This Is Anfield’ sign before walking down the new players' tunnel.

CSgt Grimes said: “All members of A (Ladysmith) Company really enjoyed the visit and we would like to thank LFC for organising the tour and receiving our party.”
