AFC Liverpool

Youth Team - Under 16’s

Under 16 (Merseyside & Halewood junior football league)

This season Under 16s are run by manager Griff Jones and Coaches Griff Jones snr, Steven Connors and Carl Davies.

3 of the 4 coaches have played football at a professional level.

Griff played for Barnsley for 5 years then moved on to Scarborough before injuries forced him to go semi-professional and is currently playing for Radcliffe Borough in the EVO-STIK league.

Apart from managing AFC Liverpool he also coaches the Knowsley School boys Under 15 side.

Griff Jones Snr played for Everton as a school boy before moving onto Tranmere Rovers. During his time at Tranmere Griff snr was the subject of many enquiries for his services from most of the top clubs in England but unfortunately had to retire due to illness. As a coach Griff snr has been coaching for well over 15 years and has coached numerous players that have gone on to play professional and semi-professional football.

Steven Connors started his career with Oldham Athletic but after a series of injuries was forced to go into semi-professional football but he has managed to rebuild his career and worked his way back up to playing professional football with Fleetwood Town an Cambridge United over the last couple of years. Apart from playing Steven also coaches soccer schools for Liverpool FC.

Goalkeeping coach Carl Davies hasn’t got any professional experience but has played for many years of amateur football around the Liverpool area. The U16s have made a couple of additions to the squad this season and are looking to build upon the great finish to last season which seen them only lose 1 game since the turn of the year.

A number of our players have been invited up to train with the reserve team and we are hoping they progress into the reserve team then the first team squad

Good luck lads
