F.A. Cup Final 1986 Reunion match
Report & pictures by Sally Devine

ANFIELD played host on 1 May 2006 to the reunion match of the Merseyside rivals FA Cup clash of 1986.  Almost 33,000 fans were present to witness football legends such as Kenny Dalglish, Alan Hansen, Ian Rush, Kevin Ratcliff and Dave Watson do battle again.  All proceeds of the game benefited the Marina Dalglish charity appeal to build an oncology unit at Fazakerley hospital in Liverpool.

Jan Molbys silky midfield skills were still evident in a red shirt and Steve McMahon renewed old rivalries with his Everton counter parts.  The game was played in good spirit as Everton shaded the first half, Dave Watson standing firm in defence.

Kenny Dalglish making his last ever appearance in a red shirt at Anfield failed to score despite the Kop willing him on.  John Durnin scored for Liverpool in the 89th minute to the delight of the  home crowd, a close range shot breaking the deadlock.

Result:- Liverpool 1 - Everton 0
Goal:- John Durnin
