MEET THE 'ACROSS THE PARK' TEAM
We’ve assembled a first class team to talk about all the goings on from Across the Park, covering topics such as transfers, latest club news/rumours, match reviews, as well as anything else concerning Liverpool Football Club and Everton Football Club.
We're a group of lifelong friends with a mutual love of football, but split down the middle between two of the greatest football clubs in the country. Find out more about us below
Craig is 32 years old, from Norris Green in Liverpool. He is a lifelong fan, holding a season ticket with two of his young (and bitter!) sons, sitting in the Upper Gwladys.
His all-time favourite Everton player is Peter Beardsley for his brilliance and intelligence on the field. Also for scoring the winning goal in his first Merseyside derby.

Ian is another Walton lad, who is 33 years old. He is a lifelong Everton fan following in the footsteps of his family and holds a season ticket in the Park End.

Like most of the lads, Gary is from Walton in Liverpool and is 32 years old. He is a lifelong Everton fan and has held his season ticket for 22 years.
His all-time favourite Everton player is the undisputed talent of Andrei Kanchelskis. He was also a big fan of both Gary Speed and Tim Cahill during their time at Everton FC.

His all-time favourite Liverpool player is local lad and club legend Steven Gerrard, although he still holds a soft spot for Luis Suarez and Bobby Firmino is fast becoming his new favourite.
His most memorable game was being there for the comeback against AC Milan in 2005, when Liverpool overcame all odds to lift the Champions League Trophy.
Gary is the youngest of the team at 28 years old and is also from Walton in Liverpool. He is a lifelong Liverpool fan and has been “since being conceived”, with a season ticket in the Kop.
