George Sephton

George Sephton was born in Liverpool in 1946 and still lives in the city, quite close to the world-famous Aintree racecourse.

He was educated at Liverpool institute high school for boys (now L.I.P.A) where he was the contemporary of two Beatles (Paul and George) along with Everton chairman Bill Kenwright and BBC newsreader Peter Sissons.

After a short spell working for a local bank, he moved into his first job in IT in 1969 – only giving that up in 2011.

For fifty years he’s had a parallel career as the stadium announcer at Liverpool Football Club; a post he says he’s extremely proud to hold. 2021 saw the publication of his memoir The Voice of Anfield – My Fifty Years With Liverpool F.C.
