Cairns returns to the purps

COLFC are delighted to announce that Craig Cairns has committed himself to the club for Season 2020/21.

Our prolific ex-centre forward and fans favourite scored 28 goals in his first season with the club, which helped propel us to the Premier Division title in the NWCFL.

Craig moved back to Runcorn Town last season to be a bit nearer to home for the birth of his second child, but will now be back in the famous Purple for a crack at the NPL North West Division.

Craig said “I missed the club last season and family comes first, but it was an easy decision to come back to the Purps and when I spoke to Robbo, it was all done and dusted in 5 minutes.

I now can’t wait to get started and get back to the lads and the staff and of course the supporters, who were always great with me.”

Manager Craig Robinson said “To have Craig back with us for the new season is great news and I’m sure it will the fans a big lift in this tough period we are all going through.

Craig is a natural born goalscorer with a hunger to be successful that matches our clubs’. He showed great desire to come back and it didn’t take long to get the deal over the line.

I’m sure he’ll get a big welcome back when we can all return”

New Club Secretary Appointed

City of Liverpool FC is pleased to announce the appointment of John Lavin as Club Secretary.
John will be a familiar face to Purps supporters having been an active participant in Club activities since the Bootle pre-season friendly in 2016, regularly attending fixtures with the rest of the Lavin clan, assisting with the COLlotto and being a participant in COLFC Community sessions.
John replaces Peter Manning who stepped down at the end of season 2019/20. Peter has kindly agreed to assist John during a transitional period where he can get up to speed with the role’s myriad responsibilities ahead of football activities resuming.
Speaking of his appointment, John said, “It’s a great privilege and honour to take on the role of COLFC Club Secretary. I look forward to the challenges ahead in serving this great club and know I have big shoes to fill in matching the standards set by my predecessor Peter Manning.”
John is 59 and a Probation Officer and so is used to mixing administration with interpersonal skills in his day job. As it is a role that only a full on Purp could take on, we felt that John was the perfect candidate.
The club felt that an internal appointment was ideal, especially with having the outgoing Secretary Peter on hand to assist, so we wish John all the best as he takes up his new role with immediate effect.
