City of Liverpool FC is pleased to announce the appointment of John Lavin as Club Secretary.
John will be a familiar face to Purps supporters having been an active participant in Club activities since the Bootle pre-season friendly in 2016, regularly attending fixtures with the rest of the Lavin clan, assisting with the COLlotto and being a participant in COLFC Community sessions.
John replaces Peter Manning who stepped down at the end of season 2019/20. Peter has kindly agreed to assist John during a transitional period where he can get up to speed with the role’s myriad responsibilities ahead of football activities resuming.
Speaking of his appointment, John said, “It’s a great privilege and honour to take on the role of COLFC Club Secretary. I look forward to the challenges ahead in serving this great club and know I have big shoes to fill in matching the standards set by my predecessor Peter Manning.”
John is 59 and a Probation Officer and so is used to mixing administration with interpersonal skills in his day job. As it is a role that only a full on Purp could take on, we felt that John was the perfect candidate.
The club felt that an internal appointment was ideal, especially with having the outgoing Secretary Peter on hand to assist, so we wish John all the best as he takes up his new role with immediate effect.
