July 9th is a special day in the City of Liverpool FC calendar. On this day in 2016 the club took to the field for the first time, in a friendly fixture away at Prestatyn Town that the debutant Purps eventually won by three goals to two.
Four years later to the day COLFC history was again being made as club directors received the keys to the King George V (KGV) Sports Complex in Huyton.
With the club’s official take over of the facility taking place at midnight, COLFC members will have woken up this Friday morning with the club they own possessing the lease to this impressive facility!
Comprising a sports hall, boxing gym, all weather football pitches, grass football pitches, tennis courts and bowling greens, the management of this complex will be a significant undertaking for the club and will mark a transition to COLFC becoming a seven days a week operation.
To be branded as PurpleHUB @ King George V, the complex will provide a training base for our first team as well as a home ground for the club’s community, junior, youth, veterans and legends teams.
In addition, in a major expansion of the club’s COLFC Community activities, KGV will be developed into a genuine community hub for Huyton.
Our plans for the site will be designed to enable new uses for the site and attract new users.
We also look forward with great excitement to working with existing service users at the site, including Huyton ABC (Brin’s Gym), Michael Corless Soccer Schools, Krav Maga, Party Kingdom, Steel Fitcamp, Moo Music, Millennium Dancers and Marie’s House.
