Boersma, Phil The goal Jim refers to was against Stoke City - remember it well. I once spoke to Phil about it in the Black Bull in Walton Vale (it was his dad’s local) and he said it was the best goal he scored in his career.

Jim Rawsthorn Phil Boersma scored possibly the most exciting goal I have seen at Anfield in 60 years running the length of the pitch towards the Kop goal hurdling tackles from the left, tackles from the right. Each cheer got louder and turned into a roar as he hurdled the final tackle and buried the ball in the Kop net.
