THE stars were out in force at Liversedge FC last Sunday to watch Huyton’s Oak Tree pub take on St John Fisher Old Boys in the first round of the FA Carlsberg Sunday Cup.

Oak Tree are the Crosby & District Premier Division champions and also won the Lal Evans Memorial Cup last season and they boast a host of celebrity followers.

Huddersfield Town’s Huyton-born defender Anthony Gerrard – cousin of Liverpool and England captain Steven – was among the crowd cheering on his mates from the Oak Tree.

Gerrard chatted with Huddersfield fans following their 2-1 victory over Wolves the previous day.

Preston North End’s Liverpool-born striker Lee Trundle was also at Clayborn offering his support.

A third star fan at last Sunday’s game was 25-year-old boxing champion Rocky Fielding.

The Oak Tree pub run coaches to many of Rocky’s fights and they were out in force earlier this month to watch the star beat Carl Dilks to win the English super middleweight title.

That clash topped the bill at Prizefighter in Liverpool, when Dewsbury’s Gary Sykes lost a narrow points decision against Terry Flanigan in the final.
