Liverpool Senior Cup Final Programme, 2nd April 2019

The Liverpool FA is unusual in so far as they hold a draw to determine which of the competing clubs will host the Senior Cup Final, then ask the home club to manage virtually every aspect of the match, including production of the programme.

Producing a 'normal' issue of The Walloper wasn't an option for me; I think that a Cup Final programme should reflect the occasion, rather than being an extension of what the club usually does.

We only had a week or so to turn this issue around but thanks to Prescot Cables brilliant graphic designer, Paul Goodwin and with a little help from Julia Irwin at Southport, we managed to come up with something that I think both clubs and the County FA can be proud of.

The match saw Cables draw 0-0 with the full-time professionals of Southport before cruelly losing on penalties. Despite the result, it was a memorable evening and I hope that the crowd of 1,226 enjoyed themselves.
