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.

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.

Houlding officially created Liverpool Football Club on 3rd June 1892 following a dispute with Everton who played at Anfield, the ground he owned.

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

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.

Supporters will be able to see the statue, which depicts Houlding in his mayoral attire, on 96 Avenue.
