LIVERSEDGE FC have announced plans to restructure the club on and off the field as part of ambitious plans to become an Evostik League club.

Simon Turfrey has joined the club as chairman, bringing a wealth of experience to the role and he will co-ordinate the various footballing activities

Turfrey will report to the main committee which itself is restructuring to further the club’s ambition.

Another exciting development will see Liversedge introduce two new teams next season at Under-19 and Under-23 level, which it is hoped will help form the backbone of the club in the coming years.

Terry Bates, Dave Haley and Dave Donald have joined the Liversedge coaching staff to look after the youth development side along with senior players.

Ex-Ossett Albion manager Dave Haley will become first team coach with Dave Donald also working alongside manger Jonathan Rimmington and his assistant Simon Emery.

Darren Attwood, last season’s first team coach, is now club secretary.

Turfrey said “I am happy to be joining Liversedge FC and look forward to working with its committee, football people and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to keep the club in the position it’s in.”

Bryan Oakes added: “I am delighted that after months of negotiations we welcome Simon on board as he has countless energy and his commitment to the game is there for all to see.”

Liversedge have also announced plans for a charity match in aid of Lymphoma Action on July 22.
