In the opposite dugout – Liam Watson

Liam, who is also a member of the Board of Directors is by far the club’s longest serving manager having racked up 547 games in charge by the end of the 2020/21 season. He is the most successful manager during the club’s non-league era.

Liam returned for his third spell as manager at the start of the 2018/19 season having managed the club to the National League North title in both 2004/05 and 2009/10 together with achieving a 7th place finish in the National League in an incredible 2011/12 season, breaking the club’s consecutive away wins record in the process. Liam has won the National League North as manager three times in total having also successfully managed AFC Telford United to the title in 2013/14. Following his spell on the Board of Directors during the 2016/17 season he then carried out a scouting role for Scunthorpe United.

His first season back at the club was up and down but after a poor start Liam oversaw a transformation that saw the club embark on a great run in the cups making round two in the FA Cup and doing the Lancashire Junior Cup/Liverpool Senior Cup double.

One to watch – Jordan Archer

Jordan, who was previously on loan at the club in 2019 re-joined the club on a deal until May 2022.

During his last stint at the Pure Stadium, Jordan scored nine times in 21 games.

A strong striker with an eye for goal, he joined from Boston United having made the switch to join the Pilgims in the summer of 2020.

Starting his career with Chasetown, Jordan progressed up the football pyramid to play in the EFL for Bury and Port Vale. He has also spent time with Maidenhead United, Chester and Stockport County.
