FOOTBALL: SCOREBOARD FOR KOP.

Byline: DAVID PRENTICE

LIVERPOOL will erect an electronic scoreboard at Anfield for the first time in the club's history.

It is hoped to be fully functional in time for the Manchester United fixture on November 9.

The scoreboard will replace the two clock faces currently sited in the corner of the Kop and the Centenary Stand,beneath the match day control room.

Liverpool Stadium Officier and Safety certificate holder Ged Poynton said: ``The two clocks in the stadium at the moment were a joint initiative between the club and our sponsors,Carlsberg, but we feel the time has come to update the technology.

``In conjunction with Carlsberg we have commissioned the new replacement of the clocks in digital format.

``The new scoreboard will contain a countdown clock as the match unfolds, a clock showing the current time and,of course, a board showing the latest score.

``There will also be room for team announcements and special messages.

``We should also stress that the scoreboard could be transferred to a potential new stadium in the future.

``All being well, we hope to have it in use for the Manchester United game next month.''
