History

Liversedge Football Club, founded in 1910, initially competed in the Bradford League and later became a prominent team in the West Riding County Amateur League. The club experienced early success, winning the league several times in its first decades. In the 1970s, Liversedge transitioned to the Yorkshire League and then to the Northern Counties East League (NCEL) in 1982. Despite challenges, they eventually achieved promotion to the NCEL Premier Division in the late 1980s.

In the NCEL Premier Division, Liversedge maintained their position without facing relegation, highlighted by reaching the FA Cup’s fourth qualifying round in 2004/05 and winning the NCEL League Cup in 2005/06. However, promotion was hindered by facility shortcomings. The late 2000s saw managerial changes and fluctuating performance, but the club secured the NCEL Presidents Cup.

The 2010s brought more stability under manager Jonathan Rimmington, with notable appearances in League Cup Finals. Despite the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, consistent performance led to promotion to the Northern Premier League. In the 2021/22 season, Liversedge won the league and the West Riding County Cup, achieving their best season. Following relegation in 2022/23, they focused on building a community-oriented club, appointing former Premier League player Ross McCormack as player/director of football.
