Here are Ken Brierley, of Liverpool F.C., his wife and children, Catherine and Michael, enjoying the results of Santa Claus’s visit. No doubt, father will get as much “kick” from the gifts as Michael, who (lower right) is proudly showing his football jersey – (of course, he’s going to be a goalkeeper) – while Dad holds the football boots. Top left: Ken takes a cracker from the Christmas tree to start the party spirit.
