SOS cup & Glenbuck restoration

One of our aims as a Union was to protect and preserve Shankly’s legacy for younger generations of fans.

In 2009 we were contacted for support after the Shankly memorial in Glenbuck was recently damaged by joy-riders crashing a car into the memorial. We kept in touch and made a first visit to Glenbuck as a union, as featured in Shankly Natures Fire.

In September 2019 we were delighted and honoured to return to attend the ceremony of the restoration of the Glenbuck Heritage Site, which included the unveiling of a new memorial to Bill Shankly.

14 December 2019 marked  60 years since Bill Shankly arrived at Liverpool. Shankly’s plans from the beginning were to transform the Reds, elevating them from a second-tier side, at the time, to one of the biggest names in European football.
