Christopher Anderson – Coaching Staff

The Club are pleased to announce the addition of first team player Christopher Anderson to the AFC Liverpool coaching staff.

Chris has been utilised all across the defence in over 30 appearances for the club this season and will remain a trusted member of the first team playing squad. Chris recently gave up his time to answer a few questions about his playing and coaching future with AFC.

What has motivated your decision to step back from playing to focus on coaching with the club?

With work commitments and with coming to an age where I need to work on my fitness more than most, I haven’t been able to do that of late, so my performances from time to time haven’t been where I would expect them of myself. This along with the combination of not having the time to get my fitness to where it needs to be and with new players coming in to the club I felt that it was the right time to get in to the coaching side. I have always had the ambition to get in to coaching and management when I finished playing, so I am grateful that AFC are giving me the opportunity to do that.

You’ve popped up with a couple of goals so far and were an integral in the defensive display that saw us grab a vital 3 points against Maine Road recently but what have been your standout moments for the club this season?

It’s been a difficult year to be honest, I have seen players come and go. At times this season we have been unplayable, to see us when we are on top form there was no team that could match the football we were playing. Obviously it’s nice to get on the score sheet but as a defender it’s always good to get a clean sheet and to win. The game I would have to say I have enjoyed the most was our 2nd half performance against Bootle at home. I started on the bench and then came on for the last few minutes but to get the win in the local derby was great! Let’s hope we can do it when we play them again next week.

What are your ambitions for yourself and the club for this season and beyond?

Ambitions for me and for the club are the same at the moment and that is to stay in the Premier Division of the North West Counties and to set a foundation with the players we have at the club at the moment with a view to really kick on next season. From a personal perspective I want to gain as much experience as I can and I want to develop as a coach, whilst hopefully adding quality and stability to AFC Liverpool.

Joint Manager’s Stuart Keir and Ben Williams gave a few words regarding the appointment – “We’re delighted to add Chris’ experience of the North West Counties to the management team, as well as his passion and enthusiasm for the club. It was a no-brainer on our part and another fantastic addition to the management family as Chris takes his first steps into coaching.”

Everyone at AFC Liverpool would like to wish Chris luck in his new role with the Club and for his future in the game.
