To celebrate International Women's Day (8 March), our Main Club Sponsor Standard Chartered Bank teamed up with the LFC Foundation and their Kicks programme for some half time activity at Liverpool’s 2-0 victory against Newcastle United.

International Women’s Day is a global event that celebrates women's achievements – from the political to the social – while calling for gender equality.

At half time of the Reds victory against the Magpies, Liverpool Ladies goalkeeper Becky Flaherty faced penalties from four participants from the LFC Foundation’s weekly coaching events which have seen over 1,000 girls engage with the game.

Following the penalty shootout, Standard Chartered Bank invited each of the participants to their VIP box in the Main Stand for the upcoming LFC legends fixture versus FC Bayern Munich fixture later this month.

On the experience of facing penalties at the Kop End, goalkeeper Flaherty said: “It was an unbelievable experience to walk out at Anfield and face penalties from some inspiring girls from the LFC Foundation’s Kick Programme. It was a fantastic occasion and one that will live long in the memory.”
