When Liverpool Football Club was Conceived, but not Born

Any Scousers in the house here? Of course there are, you don't walk alone now, do you? Today is a massive day in the history of Liverpool Football Club. Actually the first-ever day in the glorious history of the prestigious club. This year, 2017, is the 125th year of the club. And it all began today, March 15, back in 1892.

It was on this day when the founding father, John Houlding famously broke from the board of Everton to form a new club – Liverpool. He was originally president of Everton, but after a huge fall out over a number of issues including rent, he was removed from his position. This left Houlding and his colleagues with a fine football ground but no team and no name.

That evening at Houlding’s home, Stanley House, a new club was proposed and given the name of Liverpool Football Club. Then began the plans to recruit new players and to formally enter the Football League. And it was only by June 3, that the club was official and could call itself a club on paper.

Isn't it funny to think that Liverpool, one of the biggest clubs in the world, was born out of being a breakaway piece of its local rivals, Everton? Some people say that June 3 is the club's birthday, but March 15 is the day the club was conceived. What do you think? For an even better idea of the timeline, check out the video at the end of the post.

This year, 125th birthday celebrations will be kicked off with the release of a special anniversary LFC crest, which will be revealed on next season’s kit in April. Fans can also get involved in the club’s 125th anniversary, LFC will announce how, in the coming weeks. You'll Never Walk Alone!
