New manager David Martindale has moved quickly to confirm the appointment of former club captain Liam Fox as his assistant manager.
Having come into the club a few weeks ago to assist Davie and Tony Caig in the interim, Liam will now remain at the Tony Macaroni Arena as club number two.
Fox left Hearts in September having spent five years with the Tynecastle club. He held the role of reserve ream manager however, with the lack of reserve games this campaign, he made the decision to move on before arriving back in Livingston earlier this month.
Fox said “I am delighted and privileged to become assistant manager of Livingston Football Club – a club I was also lucky enough to play for and captain during my playing career.
“Since Davie asked me to come and help, the staff and players have been fantastic to work with and very welcoming. We have a good squad and we must keep working hard every day to improve individually and collectively, both on and off the park.
“It’s my aim to help the manager put a team on the pitch that wins football matches and do so in a way that the supporters are proud of.
“I would like to thank Davie and the board for this opportunity and will do everything I can to bring success to the club.”
Manager David Martindale said “I am extremely happy that Foxy has chosen to come on board as my assistant. I have spoken with him on and off for the last 5 years and struck up a good relationship with him.
“I got to know him a lot better whilst playing against Hearts and always enjoyed chatting to him pre and post-match. I always found his synopsis of the game very similar to my own and I’m delighted that we can work together trying to push Livingston FC forward.
“Of course, it’s also a bonus to bring a former player back to the club. I have no doubt that he will prove to be an invaluable member of the coaching team.”
Welcome back, Foxy!
