Early next week I have an article to share on here on Liverpool Homeless Football Club. It’s something a little different than my usual ramblings on Liverpool Ladies, but I had to put together a portfolio of articles for University and would like to share it. Liverpool’s Fara Williams coaches the women’s team.

Thanks for reading!
