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
