A FOOTBALL fan has followed in the footsteps of his heroes.

Liam Johnson won the opportunity to run out at Anfield as part of a competition organised by Vauxhall, the Liverpool team partner.

The 28-year-old, from Amber Gardens in Hindley, met with other Liverpool fans at the stadium and was given a behind the scenes tour before heading out onto the pitch.

He said; “It has been the most unforgettable day of my life. To have walked out that tunnel and faced the Kop wearing Liverpool colours was just indescribable.”

The competition winners played a game on the turf and as a surprise on the day were managed by Reds legends Robbie Fowler and Jason McAteer.

The players, who were from across the UK, had taken part in a national competition run by Vauxhall on their Liverpool Facebook page www.facebook.com/vauxhallliverpoolfc.
