Wonderful Story Of How Liverpool Fans Came Together To Support 103-Year-Old Red

All massive Liverpool fan Betty Musker wanted for her 104th birthday was a nice card, but she told her carers that she didn't expect many because most of her friends had died.

Thanks to a huge Facebook campaign by Liverpool fans, she has received 4,000 cards even though he birthday doesn't fall until October 24.

Lorraine Marshall, one of Betty’s carers explained the extent of her passion for Liverpool.

I can’t bear football, but she’s Reds mad. She watches every game, she even watched the whole world cup. She’s football crazy. She’s a lovely, lovely lady, and she loves her hometown of Liverpool.

Betty has made cards all her life, and when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she said ‘just a nice card, I love cards’, and that’s how the seed was planted.

She’s completely with it, she knows everything that’s going on. But she’ll be very surprised when she gets all these cards on her birthday.



The Facebook page, ‘For the love of Betty Musker’, has had over 16,000 Facebook shares and Betty's retirement home in Warrington is receiving over 200 cards a day addressed to the 103-year-old.


I guess it's true what they say, a Liverpool fan never walks alone.
