Message From Joe Fagan’s Grandson

We are proud to inform you that we have received contact from the grandson of the great Joe Fagan.

Joseph contacted us shortly after our penalty victory over Nelson to win the Joe Fagan Commemorative Trophy.

He has happily granted his permission for us to reproduce his email here so that our members can see his message.

Dear AFC Liverpool,

My name is Joe Fagan and I am a grandson of the Joe Fagan of Liverpool FC.

I saw on the website of Liverpool FC that you have just won the “Joe Fagan Trophy” and just wanted to say that I think it is a really nice gesture that you organised the game in memory of my grandad.

It certainly made me happy to see that he is still remembered by true fans, which is what you obviously are.

I know that my grandad would have been proud of your efforts because he was very down to earth and would have recognised that you are keeping the true spirit of the game alive.

Anyway, best of luck and I have attached an old photo of my grandad which I think you will like (top row, far left). From the days when men were men…
