AFC Liverpool have announced the appointment of Chris Stammers as the new First Team Manager.

Chris has had two previous spells as Assistant Manager at the club, firstly in the inaugural season in 2008 with manager Derek Goulding, before returning in the same role later alongside Paul Moore.

Chris is an FA Academy Manager Licence holder and a UEFA ‘A’ licenced coach with a wealth of experience. He has served as first team manager at clubs such as Burscough and Clitheroe in the Evo-Stik league, and has worked in coaching roles at many professional club academies including Manchester United, Blackburn, Burnley and most recently at Bury.

His varied CV also includes roles coaching women’s football teams at Blackpool and Preston North End, as well as youth football and college football teams, and he has held head coach positions at respected independent football development academies.

Upon confirming the appointment, AFC Liverpool Chairman Chris Stirrup said:

“The standard of applicants for the manager’s role was very high. We were particularly impressed by Chris’s enthusiasm and vision for the club. One of the first things he said when we met him was that ‘this club should be higher than it is’.

"His coaching record speaks for itself and his ambition to move the team forward was clear. It’s a nice touch that Chris has that link back to the foundation of our club, but this appointment is all about taking AFC Liverpool forward and competing in this league. ”
