Liverpool hero Ian in rush to find new talent

By Steven Beacom

Ian Rush will return to Northern Ireland next month to run his eye over our young footballing talent in his role as Liverpool's Ambassador for International Soccer Schools.

The latest Ulster based Liverpool Soccer Schools, organised in conjunction with the Happy Children charity, will take place on February 16 and 17 at the University of Ulster, Jordanstown and Assumption Grammar School, Ballynahinch.

They are open to boys and girls of all abilities aged between five and 16.

Liverpool legend Rush, who has attended the Soccer Schools here previously, said: “It's always great to come to Northern Ireland and see the kids enjoy themselves. They are very enthusiastic and there is always good talent on show.” Places can be booked at

Meanwhile, the Happy Children Charity are giving fans the opportunity to enter an amazing charity raffle that could see you win 10 Executive Box tickets to watch Liverpool's FA Cup tie against Manchester at Anfield next Saturday.

All proceeds raised from the raffle will fund children to attend Liverpool's Soccer Schools.

The Happy Children Charity has an Executive Box available for a party of 10 that would include a five course lunch, personal waiter service, match day programmes and seats above the halfway line. To have a chance of winning this stunning prize you must buy a ticket for the charity raffle at a cost of £100 per ticket which works out at £10 per head if you are lucky enough to be picked out in next Wednesday's draw.

To enter contact April/Robin (9am-5pm) 90668165, Brian 0756 493 8100, Colleen 07564389977, Caroline 07811232837 or Brenda 07876394636.
