City of Liverpool FC regretfully confirms that Craig Robinson has left the club with immediate effect.

Following a typically cordial and honest conversation between Craig and the club Chairman and Vice Chairman, it was agreed by all parties that Craig would leave his post as First Team Manager by mutual consent.

The club wishes to place on record our thanks and appreciation to Craig for his service as both player and manager. He has never been anything other than 100% committed to the cause of City of Liverpool FC and has worked tirelessly to enable the club to make the transition to Northern Premier League status a success.

Craig was appointed manager in the pre-season of 2018 and led City of Liverpool FC to a memorable North West Counties Premier League title in his first season.

2019/20 was a tough introduction to life in the Northern Premier League, not made any easier by the early termination of the season and ongoing uncertainty due to the Covid-19 crisis. Nevertheless, Craig got on with the job and assembled a squad that both he and the club believe is capable of much better than recent results suggest.

Craig gets what this club is about, he understands our values and ambitions and the role that our supporters play. We hope to see him finally being able to watch and actually enjoy a Purps’ match when he feels the time is right.

In making arrangements to ensure continuity of training and to take us through at least the next fixture, the club will be appointing a caretaker manager.

We expect to be able to make an announcement in the next day or two. The search for a permanent manager will begin immediately.

Thank you for your support and, as ever, Up The Purps!
