Former goalkeeper Liversedge on the move
Nick Liversedge is the second former Burnley goalkeeper to sign for a new club this week. Following Matt Gilks agreeing a two year deal at Rangers, Liversedge has swapped Guisborough Town for Shildon due to work commitments.
Liversedge played in a Central League game for Burnley against Tranmere at the end of the 2011/12 season and impressed then manager Eddie Howe, but it was another year before he was able to sign, one of four goalkeepers formally brought into the club in the summer of 2013.
He was considered third choice behind Tom Heaton and Alex Cisak but in his year at Turf Moro didn’t make a first team appearance. Twice he was named as substitute goalkeeper; against Preston in the Capital One Cup when Heaton was suspended and at Middlesbrough on Boxing Day when he replaced the injured Cisak on the bench.
Burnley signed him from Whitby Town although he did have Football League experience previously with Darlington. However, he was with us for just a year and has since spent two years at Northern League club Guisborough Town but they confirmed this week that he had moved to league champions Shildon.
Guisborough said: “Nick leaves with the club’s blessing as he lives near Durham and works on Tyneside and travel to Guisborough had become a serious issue for him.”Share this page :
