I have supported Saints since I was eleven when my mum first took me to Knowsley Road, and I always do my best not to miss a match – I’ve only missed Catalans away this season.“I love sport and since starting volunteering by coaching rugby league at university, and then with the Saints Foundation, I think this is something I’d love to continue to do. Although I am young I definitely want to share my knowledge and enthusiasm of the game with the children I coach. I love helping them play the sport that I love.”St Helens BRUT Fan of Pride player ambassador, Paul Wellens, commented: “It is great that BRUT recognise the importance of the supporters of the Super League. Being a Saints lad through and through I grew up watching the team on the terraces as a kid and will do so long after I retire – if I’m not involved with the club in some capacity that is!“The crowd make such a difference here at Langtree and it’s important that fans like Liam are acknowledged for their energy and support. Liam also does a huge amount for the Saints Community Foundation which he deserves to be recognised for, so it’s great that BRUT are recognising his contribution.”By winning BRUT’s Fan of Pride award for St Helens, Liam will enjoy a day out at the Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford in October, as well as some BRUT product. He will also go forward for selection for the National BRUT Fan of Pride 2014.This award will be chosen by a panel of Rugby League experts and will see the overall winner winning £5,000 for their club’s community foundation, a pair of 2015 season tickets, a signed Super League shirt and an invitation to the Man of Steel Awards.
