European Cup hero Alan Kennedy showed aspiring footballers how to take the perfect penalty during a surprise visit to the club's Soccer Schools programme at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Kennedy, whose penalty won the 1984 European Cup final 30 years ago, was joined by former manager and Boot Room legend Roy Evans.

The duo, who were given a great reception as they came onto the pitch, spoke with the kids and passed on some invaluable tips.

Kennedy also showed that he has lost none of his art of penalty taking by netting two out of three at the Kop end.

Places are still available on our UK summer Soccer Schools programmes on August 4-8 and 18-22, which are available for boys and girls of all abilities between the ages of five to 16 years.

Activities will include the LFC Academy skills challenges and LFC player workshops. All players will take away with them an official LFC junior membership, individual player feedback form, Warrior player training bag, a Warrior training ball plus a medal and certificate signed by Kop legend Ian Rush.

Supporters should also be aware that Soccer Schools will be on tour in North America in July and August in both Charlotte and Boston.

Places are still available now for the five-day events, with morning and afternoon options, and will be held in the two cities for boys and girls aged between five and 16.

This will also feature coaching philosophies and practices taken directly from the Academy in Kirkby.

Age-specific sessions are designed to cover important aspects of the game, including 'passing excellence', a 'striker's masterclass', 'running with the ball to exploit space' and 'creativity and imagination in a one-on-one'.

In addition, players will tackle exclusive Academy skills challenges, compete in a mini-tournament, meet a Liverpool legend, receive individual feedback, plus take home a training ball, bag, medal and signed certificate.
