Liverpool FC star Jamie Carragher starts search for new mascot

If you're a wannabe Warhol, a potential Picasso, or a budding Banksy and have a passion for art then Liverpool star Jamie Carragher's new competition is your chance to make a colourful splash.

The Liverpool defender and owner of Cafe Sports England is asking sporting school youngsters of Merseyside to design a new mascot for his family restaurant chain. Budding artists should create a cartoon which mirrors the sporting theme of the popular family restaurant which is famous for its healthy twist on food favourites.

The winning design will be brought to life as the official mascot for Cafe Sports England this summer and will greet diners at the Stanley Street and Liverpool One based restaurants. Cafe Sports England will showcase all the entries at the Stanley Street restaurant and the winner will be personally congratulated by Jamie at a special reception for the winner and their classmates later this year.

The competition is open to all primary school children across Merseyside and entries need to be delivered to Cafe Sports England restaurant on Stanley Street before Friday 15 March.

Paint, pencil or collage can all be used as long as work is produced on an A4 size of plain paper.

Cafe Sports England is owned by Liverpool FC football hero Jamie Carragher and the Flanagan Group. The theme of the restaurant pays tribute to local sporting heroes from the past and present, with photos and memorabilia for customers to enjoy as they dine.

Liverpool player Jamie Carragher said: "Young people and families are at the heart of everything we do at Cafe Sports England so it's great to invite school children from across Merseyside to get involved in the competition to design our official new mascot. I'm really looking forward to seeing the entries and wish everybody taking part the very best of luck."
