The Liverpool FC Academy, from which various prestigious players emerged and made their mark both in England and in Europe namely; Phil Thompson, Sammy Lee, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard amongst others, will be back in Malta from Sunday 30th October till Sunday 6th November.
All this was made possible through contacts obtained by Liverpool FC Supporters Club (Malta), who were all the way supported by the helpful hand of Qormi FC Youth Nursery. These two organisations are headed by Mr. Charles Farrugia and Mr. Victor Camilleri respectively.
During their stay, various training sesions will be held at the Qormi FC Training Grounds from Tuesday 1st November till Thursday 3rd November and on Saturday 5th November the training sessions will be held in Gozo. The event will end up by rewarding 2 kids, out of those, with the opportunity to go to Liverpool and be part of some training sessions held at Liverpool FC’s Academy in Kirkby.
The contingent will be formed by the Academy Head Coach and 6 other coaches, one of them being specifically for goalkeepers. They will also accompanied by Mr. Frank Skelly who used to perform an important role in the Academy’s scouting sector. During these sessions they will be fully assisted by the Qormi FC Youth Nursery coaches captained by Technical Director Mr. Stephen Azzopardi, Technical Advisor Mr. Steve D’ Amato and Nursery Head Coach Mr. Edward Micallef.
This will be a very important feat for both Liverpool Supporters Club (Malta) and Qormi FC Youth Nursery since the last time Liverpool FC Academy came to Malta was way back in June 2005.
