Best of luck lads we’ll be watching on the tele. John Paul George and Ringo
A telegram sent to Liverpool Football Club manager, Bill Shankly from the Beatles on the 30th April 1965. Liverpool were about to play in their first ever FA Cup final against Leeds United. Liverpool went on to win on 1st May 1965, beating Leeds 2 - 1, their first FA Cup win. At the same time, the Beatles were number one in the charts with Ticket To Ride.
The telegram will be on display permanently from the beginning of September 2017 at The Shankly Hotel, (co-founded by Bill Shankly’s granddaughter) in Liverpool.
