Anfield community

This union is committed to supporting the Anfield community in which our football club is based. We recognise the impact on local residents from tens of thousands of supporters turning up weekly throughout the season.

It has always been the aim of this union to support those seeking to improve the Anfield area. It is why we co-founded Fans Supporting Foodbanks and we are one of those supporting the #MoreThanAStadium campaign.

We are committed to continuing our support for this work.

Furthermore, this union remains committed to seeking improvements for the Anfield area. We note recent reports about a proposed train station for the Anfield area, which would bring significant benefits to supporters but more importantly, local residents and businesses.

Spirit of Shankly supports all efforts like this, to ensure that all, including supporters and residents, share in the success of our football club.

This week, the Liverpool Supporters’ Union have submitted an application to Liverpool City Council to have Anfield, and the immediate area surrounding the football stadium, designated as an asset of community value.

Paul Rice. 1957 – 2012

When over three hundred of us crammed into the backroom of The Sandon pub four years ago, not many expected us to be where we are today. The future of our football club looked bleak and worry and desperation crept in as we debated and argued about what was best for the football club. In the next few months and years, our worst fears came true, as the problems in the boardroom meant success on the pitch ground to a halt. No cup finals, no trophies. Now, 4 years on from that historic meeting, supporters are back doing what they do best - planning trips to cup finals and talking of silverware again. Sadly though, not all those who have helped us achieve this moment will be there to witness it. Tomorrow, Paul Rice, our Vice Chair, Honorary Vice President and former Chairman, will be laid to rest following his death on 21st January 2012.
