A SPORTS hall of fame for Liverpool is on its way.

Liverpool Council passed a motion put forward by councillor Gary Lucas, allocating $28,000 for the project, and it will initially be on display in Liverpool Library’s newspaper reading room.

Councillor Lucas said the motion was passed at the last council meeting.

“Everyone on council supported the motion for the sports hall of fame,” Cr Lucas said.

“Liverpool library will be the site initially and later we will look at getting another venue.”

Cr Lucas said Liverpool-born, Australian cricket Test skipper, Michael Clarke, had already donated the gloves he wore and one of the bats he used clouting 329 not-out against India at the Sydney Cricket Ground in January.

Former Wests Tigers rugby league fullback, Liverpool-born Brett Hodgson, has donated a signed football and photo.

Cr Lucas said the sports items would go on show to the public as soon as the council had bought display cabinets to house them in.

“I would like to the sports hall of fame to open in October,” Cr Lucas said.

He said the public would be asked to nominate deserving names.

Liverpool’s gold medal swimming winning 1968 Olympian, Michael Wenden and Clarke were so far at the top of the list.
