Liverpool FC and local schoolchildren have unveiled a giant mural at Anfield, which commemorates the club's 125th anniversary.

The large-scale mural, which has been permanently installed onto the Kenny Dalglish Stand, has been created by hundreds of children from local schools that neighbour the stadium.

All of the schools involved worked closely with the club's successful community programme, Red Neighbours.

LFC commissioned local artist David Andrews to work with the schools to create the canvas timeline artwork that reflects the club's 125-year history.

David said: "It's an honour to know that the mural will be displayed at Anfield for all to see, for many years to come. The schoolchildren were brilliant, as were their illustrations - they should be extremely proud of what they’ve achieved."

David hosted art workshops at each of the 25 schools, during which LFC's museum curator, Stephen Done, taught the children about the triumphant history of the club.

They allocated each school a specific five-year period (from the 125-year history) on which they should focus their piece of artwork. One design from each school was chosen to be incorporated into the timeline artwork, ensuring that the full 125 years were represented.

When assembling the full-sized mural, David scanned in a selection of the most poignant drawings and used a graphics tablet to add colour to the mural and ensure that it had a uniform style throughout and appeared in comic book style.

Karen Hutchings, head teacher at New Park Primary School, said: "The students loved the art workshops, and learning about how the club and the Anfield area has evolved in the last 125 years.

"This is the first time they've seen the final artwork, which combines pieces from all the local schools. They are so pleased with it, and can't wait to show their friends and family."
