100 Years of Shankly

Shankly 100 Centenary Dinner

On the evening of Monday September 2, 2013, the Liverpool Echo will be staging a unique tribute to Bill Shankly and his wonderful Liverpool teams.


Monday September 2 marks what would have been the 100th birthday of the legendary Liverpool FC manager. So at the Hilton Hotel in Liverpool One we will be staging a posthumous birthday tribute to Shanks by way of a celebration dinner, at which many of Bill’s living relatives have agreed to be present.

Not only will we relive Shanks’ amazing stories and his many, glorious triumphs, we will also use the occasion to present the Echo’s prestigious Bill Shankly Memorial Award to Jamie Carragher, marking his own outstanding Anfield cateer and his recent retirement as the ultimate, one club man. ┬áLike all Liverpool fans, Jamie is someone whom we know Bill would have been mightily proud to see wearing the red shirt.

We do hope you can join us for this wonderful 100th birthday tribute night to the greatest football manager the game has ever seen.
