A LIVERPOOL footballing legend will launch Formby into the festive season this week as he flicks the switch on the town’s Christmas lights.
David Fairclough, better known to most as “supersub”, will take the helm in the big turn-on this Thursday, November 29, at 7pm.
David, who played for Liverpool FC from 1974-83, rarely started for the team yet scored 34 goals in his 98 league appearances after being brought on as a sub.
Entertainment will be provided by The Merseycats, and refreshments such as crepes, roasted chestnuts, mulled wine and toffee apples will be available.
Fairground attractions will also be open from 5pm.
