Liverpool Football Club today co-opted a new director to the Anfield board. He is Keith Clayton (50), a partner in Coopers and Lybrand, a well-respected firm of chartered accountants.
Apart from a three-year spell in London, Mr. Clayton has spent all of his business life in Liverpool. He is director of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce and secretary of the Liverpool Society of Chartered Accountants.
He told the Echo: “As a lifelong supporter of the club, I was overwhelmed when chairman David Moores invited me to join the board. I welcome the chance to make a contribution to a club that means so much to the people of Merseyside.”
Liverpool Chief Executive, Peter Robinson, said: “We still face challenging financial times, with major ground development to be carried out.
“We are delighted that Mr. Clayton, with his financial expertise, has joined the board. He will have a great part to play in the future.
“The Spion Kop development is expected, with professional fees, to cost £7m. We will have to find this money out of our own finances because there are no further grants available.”
Mr. Clayton’s appointment brings the Anfield board number up to eight.
