LFC chief executive officer Peter Moore paid a visit to two local schools this week to educate pupils and support activities of LFC Foundation and Red Neighbours.
On Monday, Moore attended a Premier League Kicks session at Woodchurch High School Sports Complex alongside LFC Foundation director Matt Parish, sharing stories of their careers in football, watching the training session and afterwards chatting to parents and youngsters about the local community.
The Reds CEO spoke of his delight in seeing the success of young female footballers in Wirral, with Parish getting involved in the action by taking shots on goal and celebrating in style with the children.
Premier League Kicks Girls – delivered by LFC Foundation – is free for girls aged seven to 17, offering the opportunity to participate in competitive football, improve their skills and make new friends in a safe, controlled environment.
Moore also visited Year 4 students at Four Oaks Primary School on Wednesday, offering his knowledge on the history of Liverpool FC.

“It’s been a pleasure to visit pupils and young aspiring footballers in our local community this week,” he said.
“Engaging with the people of this community is a priority of mine and it’s fantastic to see first-hand how much of an impact our LFC Foundation Kicks programme makes to local children.
“It’s great to see that success and commitment shown by our hard-working staff at the LFC Foundation and their continued support to the children in our local community and beyond.”
Last season, LFC Foundation engaged more than 8,000 primary school children through its partner schools. This season, LFC Foundation has continued to strengthen its relationship with schools near Anfield, partnering with 20 primary schools in the Anfield area.
