Liverpool Game 1 2008

A mere three days after the first team claimed their last three points of the season, twenty-eight men stood in the tunnel in awe of their heroes. Standing alongside midfielder Jan Molby, defender Rob Jones and striker John Aldridge, all the players had to do was live up to their predecessors and Live their Dream at Anfield.

Friday 9th May 2008
Liverpool Home vs Liverpool Away
Game 1
Anfield
KO: 10:30 am
Match Officials: Julian Hitchcock, Ken Jones and Graham Jones
Legends: Jan Molby, John Aldridge and Rob Jones


The away team did very well to make the match close in the end, but eventually the home side did manage to overcome them in a highly entertaining encounter at Anfield.

After a slightly delayed kick-off (due to the local media grabbing a chance to interview the legends) the home side took the lead, and it was no surprise to see John Aldridge score with a well taken chip from the edge of the box. The away team responded soon after and were unlucky not to score when they hit the post with goalkeeper Daniel Humphry stranded. The goalkeepers were kept busy in the first half with Mark Graham making a fine save for the away team and Humphry having to be quick off his line for the home side.

One of the highlights of the match saw the Away team's Baljinder Singh go on a mazy run into the opponent's box before unselfishly squaring the ball for Christopher Laatz to sweep in an equaliser for the away side. Not long after Laatz used his pace to break through the home defence to earn himself a brace and put the Away team ahead.

However it was the home side that prevailed in the end, with goals from Thomas Mann, Colin Westbury and Dean Thorpe securing a deserved victory.
