Description

‘Fantastic book written by a true LFC legend.’ Jurgen Klopp

‘George Sephton is part of the brickwork of Liverpool Football Club and was witness to so many iconic moments. He has lived through a huge chunk of our history, from when Liverpool were in the Second Division, when he used to come to Anfield with his father, all the way to being crowned World Club and Premier League champions. It’s been a rollercoaster ride, and George has been there for all the ups and downs – but mainly the ups.’ Sir Kenny Dalglish

‘The voice of George Sephton has been heard at Anfield for so long that you could be forgiven for imagining him poised with a wind-up gramophone and a 78-rpm record of Gerry with his ukulele and a single Pacemaker, on a comb and tissue paper, piping Alan A’Court and Alf Arrowsmith onto the field.’ Elvis Costello
