Everton star Naismith snaps up match tickets for Liverpool's unemployed Everton star Naismith snaps up match tickets for Liverpool's unemployed

Everton star Steven Naismith has bought tickets for his club's home matches to give to Liverpool's unemployed people.

Naismith, who joined Everton in 2012, said: "I thought this might be a small gesture to help those in that situation to enjoy a day out at one of our league matches. Hopefully it can bring some joy to many people.

“I have asked the Jobcentre Plus if they could give the tickets to different jobcentres across the city each week and select people who are unemployed through no fault of their own, are trying hard to find employment and who would enjoy watching a Premier League match.”

The forward already supports homeless hostels in Liverpool and his native Glasgow.

Naismith added: “Every day I feel very fortunate for the opportunities and lifestyle my job as a footballer has afforded my family and me and also to be in the position where I can help the community in some small way.”
