The spring of 1990 was special for this old Kopite whose son was born
weeks before Liverpool won their 18th League title.
For 30 years he’s dreamed about this day,
now they can finally share the moment.
No victory parade and social distancing means his emotions are bitter-sweet and he leaves home en-route to his son’s house laden with memories of his own father and past victory parades which echo around Anfield and City Centre streets now deserted.
When he arrives at his son’s house the sight of the facade draped with famous/historic Liverpool FC banners moves him. His son and grandson wave from inside the window.
Three generations of reds separated by glass but together as one.
In a 40 year career, Andrew Schofield
has worked alongside stars including Gary Oldman,
Alfred Molina, Stephen Graham and even Kenny Dalglish as a fanatic Francis Scully in the successful BBC tv series.
His Son Bobby burst onto the scene alongside Jude Law and Ben Menelsohn in the Hollywood movie Black Sea before becoming a regular on television including hit series Kinghtfall and more recently the Ann Williams Hillsborough related drama.
