Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has made a quick trip to Northern Ireland to visit Liverpool’s up and coming talent at the club’s youth academies.
Dalglish took the time out from a busy off-season schedule to make the visit to the three-day events, which start today, at Assumption Grammar School and another football school in Jordanstown.
Dalglish has promised to make regular visits and hold more Liverpool events in Northern Ireland, and told reporters: “The events will be non-profit-making and hugely enjoyable for the young kids to attend,” said Dalglish.
“I am hoping to be able to support them as much as possible.
“It is hugely encouraging that the community spirit is alive and well in Northern Ireland.”
Liverpool is conducting the events in conjunction with the Happy Children charity, and Dalglish will no doubt be looking out for young Steven Gerrards and Andy Carrolls.
But the Liverpool manager will return to England post haste as the Merseyside club take on Sunderland this Saturday.
