David Livermore (born 20 May 1980) is an ex-English footballer whose career lasted 14 years (1998–2012) and is currently a coach at Millwall F.C. Livermore left Histon F.C. to return to Millwall as part of the backroom staff.

Career[edit]

Born in Edmonton, London,[1] Livermore previously played for Millwall, where he was captain, and as a trainee at Arsenal. Whilst at Millwall, he played in the 2004 FA Cup Final where they lost to Manchester United, a game in which Livermore fouled Ryan Giggs to concede a penalty. Livermore also has the distinction of having scored the last English league goal of the millennium when he scored an injury time against Brentford Football Club as well as scoring the 1000th goal of the coca cola £1million goal chase against Nottingham Forest Football Club.

Livermore joined Hull City in bizarre circumstances, having spent only ten days as a Leeds United player after signing from Millwall in the summer of 2006.[2] He joined Hull for an undisclosed fee, after Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell stated the club had eventually managed to acquire other players in the same position in Ian Westlake and Kevin Nicholls, and felt Livermore's first team chances were limited.[3]

Livermore missed Hull's first two matches in the 2006–07 season through injury, but went on to play in twenty-five league games, scoring four goals and aiding Hull in escaping relegation.

He joined Oldham Athletic on loan on 31 January 2008,[4] playing 10 games and scoring once.

On 5 June 2008, Hull announced that Livermore would be leaving the club that summer, following their promotion to the Premier League.[5]

On 3 July 2008, it was announced that Livermore had agreed a two-year contract at League One club Brighton & Hove Albion.[6]

On 26 March 2009, Livermore was allowed to leave Brighton to join League Two side Luton Town on loan,[7] where he made eight appearances.

On 2 February 2010, it was revealed that Livermore and Brighton had mutually terminated the players contract, although his current contract would not expire until the end of the season. On 4 February 2010 he signed with Barnet, scoring once in 14 appearances, against Darlington. After a change of manager two games before the end of the 2009–10 season, he was released by Barnet.

Livermore was appointed manager of Conference National team Histon on 23 August 2010.[8] Livermore featured 14 times during the 2010–11 season, after which Histon were relegated to the Conference North; he was a more regular fixture for the club in the 2011–12 season with 30 starts and one substitute appearance, as they finished the season in 16th place.

Style of play[edit]

His preferred position is central midfield, but he can also play in defence, either in the centre or at left-back.
