He only made one more league appearance and a couple of cup appearances, and joined Rochdale and Notts County on loan in 2003 and 2004, respectively. After this he joined Blackpool on loan, but in his debut he suffered a serious injury and returned to the Trotters.


On Christmas Eve 2004, Livesey signed for Carlisle United, who were then in the Conference and since joining has played a major part in the clubs rise to League One and in August 2007, signed a contract extension until 2010.[1] Livesey was named in the League One 2007–08 team of the year. He was also awarded the captaincy due to Paul Thirlwell's injury problems. On 4 June 2012, Livesey signed a new 1-year deal with Carlisle United with the option of a further year.

In 2014, he was released.


On 31 January 2014, Livesey joined Wrexham on loan for the rest of the season.[2]


In 2014 Livesey signed for Barrow, helping the club to win the Conference North title on the final day of the 2014-15 season in a 3-2 win at Lowestoft Town. Following the departure of Simon Grand at the end of the 2015-16 season Livesey was made the club captain.
