Jamie Carragher is set to build his first football academy outside of Liverpool.
Permission has been applied for to build an academy in Preston. If permission is granted the academy will be built, which will include a 3G sports pitch and gymnasium.
The Academies specialise in 16-19 year olds who wish to combine progression into football or coaching with the dynamic area of physical education, sports coaching and sports development. The students look to leave the Academy with a BTEC Diploma.
We will keep you updated on the progress of this project.
If you haven’t read Jamie Carragher’s autobiography ‘Carra’ yet you really are missing a treat!
Full of humour about life on and off the field, this really is a must-read for any football fan, and if you want a signed copy of it they are available from our on-line store for just £35 (Personally signed by Jamie Carragher)
Online book site www.goodreads.com reviewed the book and this is what they said;
“Jamie Carragher is one of the most charismatic footballers of his generation. Adored by the fans, he was recently voted the most popular player in the entire Liverpool squad. Yet the young Carra came to Liverpool as an Everton fan, from an Everton family, and with Everton friends.
Packed with great anecdotes, controversial opinions and large helpings of his trademark humor, this is his story. Born in January 1978 in Bootle, Merseyside, Carragher signed professional terms with Liverpool in 1996, having served a successful apprenticeship, won the FA Youth Cup and played for England Under-21s. He scored a goal in his first full game for the senior team—pretty good for a defender and very unusual for him—and his versatility was to ensure a permanent place in the starting line up before long and he is now vice Captain. In fact he is so integral to the Liverpool squad, the Kop now chants “we all dream of a team of Carraghers” to the tune of “Yellow Submarine.”
Raw, funny, and down-to-earth, his book is an antidote to the anodyne sports autobiography. It takes you behind the scenes of all of Liverpool and England’s greatest triumphs and disasters in the company of a player who never fails to be intelligent, controversial, or just downright hilarious.”
When we talk about Liverpool players of the past such as Bob Paisley, Ron Yeats, Tommy Smith, Roger Hunt, Ian St John, Ian Callaghan, the talk is always remembers fondly.
These were winners, people who knew what the Liver bird on the chest meant to the fans therefore demonstrating this by performing with passion, respect and belief.

I think Jamie Carraghers tweet yesterday during the Exeter FA Cup game was echoed by millions of Liverpool fans across the world.
Jamie tweeted in typical scouse “Go ed Flanno lad” … as Jon Flanagan made his first appearance in over 20 months after being out with injury.
And what a great win by a young Reds team with a superb goal from Ojo too. A great result to take us through to the 4th round.
Everyone at the 23 Foundation is delighted to see Flanno back in action and look forward to seeing him fight for a regular place at right back in the LFC first team!
Welcome back Flanno!
