A bronze bust of Liverpool Football Club founder, John Houlding has been installed at Anfield.

Reds can visit see the bronze of John Houlding on 96 Avenue from 9th November.

Peter Moore, chief executive, Liverpool Football Club said: “We didn’t have any symbol at Anfield that was a representation of our Founder that our supporters could see and touch and reflect upon.

“There are very few pictures of John Houlding in existence so I did a lot of research around the style of dress that would have been worn at the time.

Everton left and Houlding found new players to create a team to play at his ground – Liverpool Football Club was born.

“I hope our supporters take the time to go and visit Mr Houlding as he looks proudly upon our Main Stand.” Houlding officially created Liverpool Football Club on 3rd June 1892 following a dispute with Everton who played at Anfield, the ground he owned.

The bronze which stands just under 7ft tall, has been created by Liverpool sculptor Tom Murphy, who also created the world famous Shankly statue which sits outside the Kop and has become a landmark in its own right.
