With over 600 appearances for Liverpool, 6 league titles, 4 FA Cups, 3 league cups and a European Cup in 84 where he famously distracted the Italian player to win the game for the reds in a penalty shoot out. One of the most iconic goalkeepers in Liverpool and English football history.
A spectacular midfield player who scored arguably the best goal ever seen at Anfield during the 7-0 win over Tottenham in 1978. His wizardry in midfield was justly rewarded in 1980 when he became the first player to win the Football Writers' and PFA's Player of the year awards in the same season. With 5 league titles to his name, McDermott also won 3 European Cups during his massively successful career for Liverpool and England.
Returning to Vegas for the second year running, Roy Evans spent 34 years at Liverpool FC as a player, coach and manager. Roy was involved with some of the greatest ever teams that Liverpool, if not world football has ever seen. He has been present at some of Anfield's most memorable nights, and shared the dressing rooms and pitches with some of Liverpools greatest ever players and managers.
Completing the returning trio is Howard Gayle. Liverpool born and bred, Gayle rose through the ranks of his boyhood club, signing a professional contract in 1977 to become the first ever black player to play for Liverpool. His finest hour came against Bayern Munich in the European Cup semi final in the 80/81 season, where a sparkling performance helped the Reds reach the Final in Paris where we lifted our third European Cup.
Also returning for 2020 is David Johnson. A natural goal scorer, ‘The Doc’ became part of a famous Liverpool squad that picked up silverware year after year. 4 league titles and 3 European cups later, David played his part in one of the most successful periods in Liverpool history. Like Terry, the popular scouser also represented England, scoring 6 goals for The Three Lions.
Popular singer/songwriter Marc Kenny will once again be strutting his stuff in Vegas for 2020. Whether he is belting out Kop anthems to get the crowd going or singing his own songs its always a great night. The in-demand artist has established himself as one of the musical faces of LFC, performing not only for the club in various different gigs, but representing The Reds all over the world.
