Not So Fantasy Football

Many people on Merseyside have some far-fetched footballing fantasies.

But for one Radio Clatterbridge presenter, his goal has become a reality after representing UEFA at the Champions League Final at Wembley!

Steve Evans is a disabled committee member on the Disabled Supporters Association at Liverpool FC.

He went through a rigorous selection process, including an interview with a UEFA official from Switzerland. It resulted in a fantastic opportunity for Steve to be a Transport Co-ordinator for TV VIP's at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in London. 

Steve spent a week at the hotel in the build up to the final and in the aftermath on the Sunday, to ensure all UEFA representatives and their partners had transport to hand to travel to the various UEFA official events that were happening all over London in that week.

This included transport to and from Wembley on the night of the match, and transportation to the relevant airports on the Sunday.

"This was a mammoth task! Together with three other like-minded volunteers, we assisted VIPs from UEFA, Sky Sports, ITV, Fox Sports, Ford, Heineken and others, as well as guests including Sir Alex Ferguson, Pierluigi Collina, the great Eusebio and the former Bayern Munchen goalkeeper Oliver Kahn." - presenter Steve Evans

Steve was rewarded with a farewell party on the Sunday after most official guests had departed.
