City of Liverpool FC, the region's newly formed supporter owned football club has appointed its first ever Manager, who will lead the club into the historic first season of football, kicking off in August 2016.
Simon Burton joins the club from North West Counties Premier Division club Runcorn Town, after 7 successful seasons, having led them from Division 1 of the West Cheshire League in his first season at the helm, into the 1st Division of the North West Counties League, where an immediate 2nd place finish saw back to back promotions upto the Premier Division, where Simon’s team finished an excruciatingly close 2nd to almost make it a Hat-Trick of promotions and have rarely finished out of the top 5 since.
Simon brings with him a wealth of experience of playing at Non-League and a desire to succeed in football management that mirrors the ambitions of the club completely.
Also joining Simon at COLFC will be his entire back room team consisting of assistant manager Tom Spearritt, 1st team coaches Chris Lawton and Phil McDiarmid and Pysio Lucy Orme.
Simon and his team will take over football matters at COLFC at the conclusion of the current league season.
Club Chairman Paul Manning said “After an extensive recruitment process, Simon stood out amongst several other high quality candidates as having the experience and expertise that we were looking for to lead the club in our historic 1st season, where he is confident that he can deliver what the club and the City is looking for; a winning football team that we can all be proud of and all get behind. Simon’s professionalism and honesty was also a key factor in our decision and we are now starting preparations for Season 2016-17 in earnest”.
Simon said “From my first meeting with the Directors I could see the passion and desire to make City of Liverpool FC a success and that was something that I immediately felt I wanted to be a part of. I am absolutely delighted to be named the first ever manager of the club and am really looking forward to starting the role at the end of the current campaign.”
Football has a long and illustrious history in Liverpool, not just with it's two major professional
clubs but also with early pioneers, players, schools football and amateur leagues played on both Saturday and Sunday.
League Championships, Cup wins, European trophies, ESFA Wins, National Sunday cups; the list is endless. The Liverpool city region produces more professional footballers per head than any other British city, more child and youth soccer players, more amateur footballers and that is without mentioning the veritable army of volunteers who ensure that football is available and played in the city every day of the week.
It is entirely accurate to say that Liverpool is a hot bed of football.
It is equally as accurate to say that football in Liverpool does not just exist once a week at Goodison Park or Anfield. Nor is it just a televisual sports entertainment pursuit. Football in Liverpool exists on a daily basis in school playgrounds, in parks, in 5 a side centres, sports centres, on the streets, in futsal leagues, in workplaces, in pubs and social clubs and in every neighbourhood across the city.
However, amid all of this footballing activity and enthusiasm a gap in the city's footballing infrastructure is all too apparant. There is no senior non-league team playing within or representing the city. All of the outer boroughs are well represented; Knowsley, Sefton, Wirral, St Helens and Halton all have non-league clubs, but not Liverpool.
City of Liverpool Football Club will change that.
We seek to be an inclusive footballing expression of our city region identity, community owned and operated and providing a foundation for grassroots football to thrive and grow.
