Jamie Carragher: ‘Hanging out with Chewbacca and Luke Skywalker is how I passed the time’

The former footballer turned pundit talks Sunday League football, Tony Bellew and his potentially volatile fantasy dinner party

Hello Jamie, what are you up to today? It’s just a normal today today, mate. I’ve been to the gym and I’ve just had a bit of lunch and now I’m talking to you.

You’re only talking to us today because you’re hoping we’ll mention the Budweiser Dream Goal you’ve been roped in to oversee with your Sky Sports cronies Jamie Redknapp and Ed Chamberlin. What’s that all about? Yes, I got drafted in because Mr Gary Neville did it last year and he’s obviously unavailable at the moment. We’re basically looking at the best Sunday League goals, which people are invited to send in on clips taken on phones, or cameras or whatever. We’re hoping to see people emulating their heroes in the Premier League and eventually somebody will be judged the winner.

Jamie Carragher, Juan Mata and the charitable footballers making a difference

The release of Deloitte’s Money League amid the January transfer window shows the extortionate amount of wealth in football, but it’s also worth remembering that the game produces some admirable philanthropists and ambassadors

By Richard Foster for The Agony and the Ecstasy of the Guardian Sport Network

As Jamie Carragher played his last game for Liverpool on 19 May 2013 and contemplated his retirement, he had very little to prove. His 737th appearance for his one and only club cemented his status as an Anfield legend, but he had already laid down plans to help others less fortunate than himself. In 2010 Carragher decided to donate the proceeds raised from his testimonial to setting up his own charitable foundation. The money from the testimonial gave the Carragher 23 Foundation an initial fund of over £1m and created an endowment that is to be used to for contributions to local charities, clubs and community initiatives in perpetuity.

The 37-year-old admits to harbouring early doubts. “To be honest, at first I was a bit unsure about what it entailed but that’s why using the community foundation route was crucial as you have a team of people at hand when you need help.”

Liverpool’s Jeffrey Humble playing fields show benefits of grassroots game

The new £750,000 facility in Liverpool hosted the 2015 Premier League Kicks Cup, part of a project across England and Wales that offers free opportunities in football which are helping to reduce incidents of crime and antisocial behaviour

When the antiquated changing rooms at Jeffrey Humble playing fields in Liverpool were burned out in 2012 it was, according to Barry Kushner, “the low point for an area that had been suffering for 10 years”. Three years on a new £750,000 community facility stands on the same site, a symbol of recovery and testament to the importance of investment in grassroots football, when it comes. “It has restored hope,” adds Kushner, a local Labour councillor for the Norris Green ward that incorporates the playing fields where Wayne Rooney, Jamie Carragher and Steve McManaman started out.
