South Liverpool fans will be sitting pretty next season thanks to some seriously heavy lifting by the club’s friends and sponsors to install a free stand!
A brand new 75-seater is pictured being lowered into position at Jericho Lane on Wednesday after it was donated to the club by G&W (UK), a subsidiary of Genesee & Wyoming Inc, one of the largest owners and operators of freight railroads and networks in the world.
Chuffed officials at the West Cheshire League Division One club, who hope to be playing in the North West Counties Football League when football returns after the coronavirus, also tweeted out their thanks to Merseyside’s Cork Crane Hire and SLS Ltd for doing the heavy lifting free of charge.
The post read: “We’ve been planning it for quite a while and we think it looks fantastic! Big thanks to Cork Crane Hire and Jon Sherrington from SLS Ltd for the installation!
