Blues favourite Leon Osman joined participants from Everton in the Community’s disability programme recently as they took on Steven Gerrard and players from the Liverpool Foundation in a game of blind football at Anfield Sports and Community Centre.

Former midfielder Osman and ex-Liverpool captain Gerrard renewed their old club rivalry for the competitive fixture in support of the BT Disability Initiative.

The pair joined blind and visually impaired footballers from EitC and Liverpool Foundation, as well as players from Merseyside Blind FC, in learning the basics of blind football before taking part in small-sided games and a penalty shootout.
