Liverpool FC — Why Anfield means so much to Missy Bo Kearns

The local midfield maestro, as the fans call her, remained on the bench for the November 2019 meeting with the Blues in front of the Kop, which the away side won 1-0.

But now a regular starter under Matt Beard, the Scouser is relishing the chance to play at her beloved Anfield with the red shirt on.

LFC Women got their season off to the perfect start last weekend when they came from behind to beat reigning champions Chelsea 2-1 at Prenton Park.

Beard’s team now have this special opportunity to play in front of the Kop in a Merseyside derby, with kick-off set for 6.45pm BST.

Read on as Kearns tells us of her affection for LFC and hopes for Sunday’s encounter…

On what Anfield means to her…

Being a Liverpool fan, coming to Anfield and coming to watch all of the games, this is a special place. I know people who don’t support Liverpool who say how much of a good atmosphere there is and how big an impact the stadium has on football fans. Being a local girl and supporting this team from a young age, I take it for granted how lucky I am. It’s the team I support and it’s a place I used to love coming here as a kid, and I still love coming to the place now.

On the famous Anfield atmosphere…

When it’s full, the atmosphere is amazing. It helps the momentum when the team are playing. I think it has a big impact on the games. The stadium is getting bigger and bigger, we are getting a new stand for the Anfield Road and more fans will be able to come along. Anfield is a highlight of the city.
