Liz is in New Ambassador
Everton former players’ foundation is delighted to announce Liverpool-born pop star, Liz is now an official Ambassador for the Everton Former Players Foundation.
Liz, who rose to stardom as one of the chart-topping singing trio Atomic Kitten, is a lifelong Evertonian and she is thrilled to be on board with the EFPF.
“I’ve always supported Everton so it’s great for me to be involved in this way,” said Liz. “I’ve met the trustees and the enthusiasm and the passion they’ve got for the EFPF is fantastic. We’ve discussed a few ways in which I can help and I’m looking forward to it.
“The work the Foundation does to help former players is something that all our fans are very proud of. I met some of the old players at the Manchester United match and they also spoke very highly of the EFPF. We were the first club to have something like this and if I can help in any way, shape or form to attract some publicity or help to raise some funds then I’ll be delighted.”
Liz was a guest of the EFPF for Tony Hibbert’s testimonial match against AEK Athens last month and she helped to present the long-serving defender with a commemorative plaque from the trustees.
Like the rest of us, she has thoroughly enjoyed the positive start to the new season.
“The season has started really, really well and I’m confident we can keep it going,” she said. “Keeping Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines after all the rumours about them going was great and we also brought in some good players. It’s an exciting time to be an Evertonian and I hope that before the end of the season I will be joining all the former players at Wembley!”
Rev Harry Ross, an EFPF trustee, said: “We are delighted that Liz has agreed to help us out. She is a well-known face and, more importantly, she is keen to do her bit to help the work that we do. We need to attract the interest of younger Evertonians and I am sure Liz will help us to do that.”
