Many thanks Furns

If you have been involved with LFCNSW over the last 10 years, you’ll know Furns.

He’s the one that’s sorted the ticket allocations, answered your emails, was instrumental in LFCNSW becoming an Official Liverpool Supporters club.

After some big life changes he’s stepping down from LFCNSW and we can’t thank him enough for all that he’s done.

Furns you’re a legend, you’re a mate & you’ll always be a part of LFCNSW. Thank you mate x
