Chris Davies: Charity game will be a great day at Paradise

LENNOXTOWN was a quieter place today, with many of the first-team squad away on international squad, but assistant manager, Chris Davies, and the rest of the coaching team put the remainder of the players through their paces.

There is no domestic football this weekend, due to the latest round of international fixtures, but there’s still a match at Paradise on Saturday, September 8 (KO: 2pm).

‘A Match For Cancer’ takes place this weekend, featuring a Stiliyan Petrov squad taking on a team selected by James Milner. The name of the game is, of course, raising money for charity, and with Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp in the respective dugouts, it’s sure to be an entertaining event.

Speaking at the club’s training ground today, Chris Davies said: “It’s for a very important cause and it’s going to be a great day with some really big names  turning up and getting involved.

“Stan’s someone who is spoken about highly here by former colleagues and players. Milly (James Milner) was with us at Liverpool for a short time and has had a fantastic career at a lot of big clubs and is still going strong, so hopefully it’ll be a good day. But the cause itself is what’s most important.

“I’m sure Brendan’s looking forward to seeing Jurgen so it should be a good day. As long as he’s paid his rent on time then everything will be all right!”
