Liverpool aren’t in action this weekend due to the international break, so fans are being urged to show support to local non-league sides instead.


Following Jurgen Klopp‘s Reds is a full-time occupation these days, with matches every few days more often than not.

It’s two weeks between matches right now, however, with the latest international break interrupting the top end of the domestic calendar.

Home supporters celebrating their team's fourth goal at the Delta Taxis Stadium, Bootle, Merseyside as City of Liverpool hosted Holker Old Boys in a North West Counties League division one match. Founded in 2015, and aiming to be the premier non-League club in Liverpool, City were admitted to the League at the start of the 2016-17 season and were using Bootle FC's ground for home matches. A 6-1 victory over their visitors took 'the Purps' to the top of the division, in a match watched by 483 spectators.
