We have the pleasure of welcoming David to St Andrews Bar and Grill for an evening of Q&A along with regaling stories of League Titles, European Cups, Scoring goals and working under Liverpool FC's most successful manager.
On 16 March 1977 came the biggest moment in Fairclough's career. The Reds were trailing by the away goal to the French champions Saint Etienne with time running out in a frenzied atmosphere at Anfield in the European Cup quarter-final. Fairclough had come on as substitute for Toshack in the seventy-fourth minute and with six minutes to go he latched on to Ray Kennedy's lob and headed for goal. The 'legend' will tell you that he beat several defenders on his way into Merseyside folklore but the reality is that he kept his eye on the ball, brushed aside any challenge from a defender and then calmly tucked his right-foot shot under Curkovic into the Kop goal to bring about scenes which those who were there still talk about with a lump in their throat and a shiver down their spine!
David's contribution towards the club's success of the late 70's and early 80's should not be underestimated and his 'golden' moment against Saint Etienne is one which will never be forgotten.
