Anfield Rising: Liverpool The Early Years

By Brian Belton

Liverpool Football Club.

Just three words. But over the years they have provoked both fear and respect throughout world football. 

And for the club’s vast armies of fans, both on the banks of the Mersey and around the globe, the same three words have inspired bonds of strength and solidity unequalled in sport. 

But what is the source of that enduring ‘hope in your hearts’?
From the foundation of Liverpool Football Club in 1892 and their rapid rise from the regional Lancashire League, to the Reds’ first League Championship in 1901, the story of the club’s early years has as many twists and turns as any of the team’s legendary games. 

‘Anfield Rising: Liverpool The Early Years’ is a dramatic and fascinating chronicle of the making of a colossus in the field of sport. 

The leading football historian Brian Belton charts a highly readable history that every true Red, and all those who have an interest in football and its development will want to read.

Brian Belton is the author of ‘Bolton Born: The Early Years of Bolton FC’, ‘When magpies First Flew: Newcastle FC The Early Years’, ‘West London Born- The Early Years of QPR’ and numerous books on the history of football. His books on the game are primarily a study and celebration of this global congregation, the life carnival of soccer splendour.
