Reds Cult Hero Backs AFC Liverpool

Dated: Sat Apr 12th 2008

Liverpool cult hero Erik Meijer has given his backing to fans club AFC Liverpool by agreeing to sign up as an official patron of the club.

The former Liverpool forward, who joined the club in 1999, quickly became a cult hero amongst Reds fans for his committed and eccentric approach to the game.

He was approached by AFC Liverpool last week with an offer to be one of the club's official patrons.

Meijer said: "I am proud to be the first Dutch supporter of AFC Liverpool. I wish you all the best in the league and hope to see some good results. Come on!!!"

AFC Liverpool spokesperson Alun Parry said: "Erik is an absolute legend amongst Liverpool fans. His love of LFC is well known, even drinking and singing with fans in Dortmund before the UEFA Cup Final. We're delighted to have Erik on board, and he is a fitting first patron of the club."

AFC Liverpool has been set up as a pro LFC non league club for passionate Liverpool fans who can no longer afford to pay Premiership prices. They hope to be playing in the Vodkat League this forthcoming season.
