Queen Elizabeth II presents England's World-Cup winning captain, Bobby Moore, with the Jules Rimet trophy



Liverpool and District Football Association, as it was formerly known, started after an inaugural meeting of twelve clubs involving Everton , Liverpool, Wirral and others who decided the best way to support local charities and form a representative team was to form the Association.

The meeting, held in the Tarleton Hotel in February 1882, was the catalyst to what we have proudly become, as like them, they dedicated their lives to football. Mr R.M Sloan took the Chair with Mr R Lythgoe becoming the very first Secretary.

The first step was to accept a proposal “that we form ourselves into an Association called Liverpool and District Football Association and all clubs playing within a radius of six miles be eligible.”

Liverpool County Football Association was born and long may it serve those who participate in this great game.
