The Liverpool Way

Ian Rush - LFC Legend & Soccer Schools Ambassador

Liverpool Football Club is the best club in the world.

As one big LFC family we have a responsibility to provide young players around the world with access to the best environment and coaching possible, that's what we aim to achieve with our International Academies.

By following the same curriculum that we deliver to our players at the LFC Academy we can ensure that all participants get the very best football education from our coaching staff. I believe it’s very important to develop a players’ skills both on and off the pitch and our International Academies do just that.

I am extremely proud to be an ambassador of this fantastic programme which continues to go from strength to strength. This role allows me to take LFC to our young fans across the world and show them just what it means to be part of the LFC family.

Four Players Invited to LFC Academy in the UK  

It was a busy few weeks for our Academy, but we can now close the book on 2019 Summer Camps. We'd like to extend a thank you to both Josh Wesselby and Simon Smith who joined us from the LFC Academy in Liverpool for camp at Mass Maritime Academy and the Pomfret School. 

For the first time, in 2019 we introduced an ID component to our camp. One boy and one girl from each camp were selected by Josh and Simon to win "The Liverpool Way" as a standout player and the best example of our four values (Ambition, Commitment, Dignity and Unity) on and off the field. As part of the award, these players are invited to a camp at the LFC Academy in Liverpool in 2020 for a chance to showcase their skills at the highest level. With that said, we'd like to extend a huge congratulations to the following players: Parker Metzler, Jose Aguilar, Aidan Mermagan and Olivia Greiner. 

Liverpool FC USA Tour: Boston

To say that it was a historic weekend for our club would be a complete understatement. Sure, there was a buzz in the entire LFC community surrounding the USA Tour, but for us, it was different. What started as early access, pre-sale tickets to the match against Sevilla turned into so much more, and for that, we are so grateful. During the course of the weekend, our players had multiple opportunities to interact with players and coaches from both Liverpool FC and Liverpool FC Women, and we've been told time and time again that this was a weekend those players would never forget.

The weekend kicked off on Saturday morning, with a quick trip to Fenway for a small group of players to meet none other than Liverpool FC Mascot, Mighty Red. Players were delighted to take photos with the LFC icon!

On Saturday evening in the hot sun, we were given exclusive access to the men's training session in historic Fenway Park. After the session, our players were able to meet with, snap selfies of, and collect autographs from the likes of Fabinho, Van Dijk, and Robertson! Club Director of Soccer and Coaching, Adam Scott, had a few minutes of time with Jürgen Klopp, LFC Manager. We were so happy to answer Klopp's questions about our club and tell him all about what we do. We let him know that our players dream to wear the kit as professionals one day. That was a special moment for all of us. The players were so friendly, warm and excited to meet the kids. One of our players Cam Benefit was certainly in awe. 

 

"The weekend was one of the greatest of his life, and he still can't believe he got to meet all the players after practice and got a chance to get all their autographs. He told me he was thankful to be part of such an amazing club."

Sunday was a day that will stay with many of our players for the rest of their lives. Instead of us telling you, here is what they had to say.

"My son Liam ONeill was one of the mascots at Sunday's Match. At the age of 8, it was truly a highlight in his young life so far. When we asked him, he just said he felt so lucky to be chosen and to be a supporter and Academy player of the best club in the world. Liverpool has given him some wonderful events to look back on already and this will be at the top of his list. We can't thank the Academy enough for the opportunity and we look forward to his future with the club. He was born into the Liverpool Family as his father being from Ireland has supported the club from a young age so it's always been in his blood, but now being old enough to decide for himself he tells us that Liverpool is now his heart."

 

Those sentiments were shared by Brady Hill.

"Walking out onto the field and looking around the stadium was greatest moment of my life! Someday I want it to be me!"

While the men's match might have been over, there were still many things to do. On Monday morning, LFC organized a meet and greet with the men's team for International Academy players only. A group of the players, including Croatian sensation, Dejan Lovren were present to sign autographs, snap photos and answer a few hard hitting questions including "what's your favorite ice cream topping?" Watching a match is great, but meeting your heroes up close and personal is a life changer!

As soon as we heard Liverpool FC Women would be joining on the tour, we got two more events into motion. It's of course wonderful for all our players to be exposed to professionals, but it is of particular importance for our girl players to have these female role models to look up to. The women's team exceeded any expectations. On Monday night, we were invited to be Mascots and Ball Girls for their match at Jordan Field. Star struck would be an appropriate word to use for this evening. To top things off, this was a closed match, so only a small handful of our players and a few match sponsors were in attendance. The women put on a dazzling display and won 6-0. Despite the rain, we had a great night. 

Before LFC Women headed to New York, we organized an Afternoon Tea Send Off at the British Residency of her Majesty's Consul General in Beacon Hill with some of our players. Every member of the women's team was in attendance, and our girls had time to actually connect with each of the players. Autographs were given and photos were snapped, but I think the conversations with the players are what will stick with our girls the most. LFC Women Captain, Sophie Bradley-Auckland left the girls with the following words of encouragement. 

 

"Keep doing what you're doing. Stick to it. We was all your age and in your position once, and it does happen. Dreams become reality. Dreams do become reality if you make it happen. If you really want it, stick to it."

We owe a tremendous thank you to Liverpool FC and Liverpool FC Women, the Red Sox Foundation, the British Consulate in Boston, all chaperones, photographers, our staff and so many more for an incredible weekend. It's clear to us that we are really and truly a part of the World's Greatest Football Family. For even more photos from the weekend, please visit our Facebook Page

PLAYING THE LIVERPOOL WAY

Liverpool Football Club is recognised around the world as one of an elite group of clubs with a true worldwide reputation. We pride ourselves in creating the best environment for the development of young players, both as footballers and as people.

We have a very special philosophy which is well known by our players, staff and fans, is recognised all over the world and sets us aside from other football clubs. The characteristics of 'Playing the Liverpool Way' were no more evident than during the 2005 Champions League final. Team spirit, hard work, determination and the ability to overcome any obstacles in life and above all play with dignity and fair play.... these are all the values and characteristics we look for in our players.

For the last 50 years the club has been at the forefront of British and European football, winning numerous championships and European club tournaments. During this time, there has been a consistent tradition of developing top class players, particularly from the Liverpool Academy; currently Steven Gerrard is the ultimate example of a home grown talent who ranks at the very top of the worldwide game.
