Today marks 125 years since Liverpool FC was formed.
On March 15, 1892, John Houlding famously broke from the board of Everton to form a new club – Liverpool.
Club historian and museum curator Stephen Done explains: “It’s perhaps not widely known that Liverpool FC’s founding father and first president, John Houlding, was originally president of Everton but, after a huge fall out over a number of issues including rent, he was removed from his position.
“This left Houlding and his colleagues with a fine football ground but no team and no name! The evening of March 15 at Houlding’s home, Stanley House, a new club was proposed and given the name Liverpool Football Club.
“And so began the plans to recruit new players and to formally enter the Football League. By June 3, Liverpool Football Club was official.”
