Actress Sue Johnston joined pupils from five local schools at a Red Neighbours careers event at Anfield on Thursday.

The lifelong Reds fan spent the afternoon chatting to the youngsters about her career, experiences and aspirations and offered advice on building a successful future beyond education. 

Pupils from Alsop High School, North Liverpool Academy, Notre Dame Catholic College, Academy of St Francis Assisi and All Saints Catholic High School headed to the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand for the networking session, where they were also joined by LFC representatives from numerous departments within the club. 

“I think it’s great for these kids to come here and learn about different careers,” Sue said. 

“They weren’t just learning about me and acting, they were learning from all the staff at the club and it’s great in the way it gets the children to think about the possibility of careers. 

“It’s been really inspiring - I think its tremendous.”

Throughout the afternoon, the pupils were given the opportunity to talk to a range of LFC staff to gain insight into the diverse roles within the club.

Red Neighbours' career speed networking events are designed allow local pupils to learn about the education history and career paths of club employees, discover the many different opportunities available within football, and receive guidance on how to be successful in their chosen occupation.

Since the first session in 2017, career speed networking has engaged hundreds of local children and demonstrates Red Neighbours’ commitment to creating memorable experiences for young people.
