Their aim is to befriend newcomers to our town. Old friends can make sure that no one is lonely and isolated when they arrive here.

They have members from all over the world, speaking many different languages. But a warm welcome is guaranteed to all who join them.

Bill Shankly famously said ‚ÄúSome people think football is a matter of life and death. I can assure them it is much more serious than that”
