Friends Of Liverpool

Peter Chadwick has a campaign running for Liverpool Legend, Kenny Dalglish to be given a Knighthood for his services to football and the wider community of Liverpool.

With his Marina Dalglish Foundation for Cancer care having raised over £1.5 million, they were able to open an oncology unit at Alder-Hay Hospital.

As a footballer, he won several League and European trophies in the seventies and eighties with, firstly Celtic and then famously with Liverpool FC.

As a manager he won three League titles for the Reds in his first period and last Season, he won The League Cup and reached the FA Cup Final.

He was deeply involved in the Hillsborough tragedy where he went to all the funerals of the 96, attending as many as four services a day.

Soon after, the strain became to much for the great man and he resigned as Liverpool Manager.

He returned to his beloved club as care-taker Manager to replace the poor and short-lived reign of Roy Hodgson and having guided Liverpool to fifth in 2010/11, he was given a permanent deal by owner John W Henry.
Despite reaching two Cup finals and winning one last Season, finishing eighth was deemed unacceptable and he was duly dumped by the current owners FSG, but his legendary status burns as brightly as ever.
