Liverpool Homeless Football Club, which is affiliated to Oporto client, Liverpool County FA, have been presented with a brand-new washing machine by white goods manufacturer Zanussi – thanks to the lengthy service provided by a local man’s own washing machine.

Frank Fairclough contacted the white goods giant to commend them on the length of service he’d received from his existing machine – which he purchased in 1987. Zanussi celebrated by donating a brand-new washing machine to Liverpool Homeless Football Club.

Stuart Carrington, Football Development Officer at Liverpool FA and manager of Liverpool Homeless Football Club, said: “We hope our machine serves us as well as Mr Fairclough’s, so that we can keep our players’ kits clean for years to come.”
