We'd like to wish a huge congratulations to Alex Rotherham, one of our Ormskirk FC Under 8s players, who has signed for Liverpool!

Alex has been with Ormskirk FC since he was 4 years old, when he first attended our Ormskirk FC Kidz sessions. Straight away, the coaches could see how talented a footballer he was for his age.

Alex trained up a year with one of our Under 7s teams when he was 5 years old (the same age that he started training with Liverpool FC), and his first match action for us came when he played for an Ormskirk FC Under 6s team that played in a Summer development league in Prescot.

Alex played for this Ormskirk FC team with his friends as they went into the Under 7s and Under 8s age groups, doing really well and playing up a year each season in the Skem JFL.

We're really sorry to lose Alex, but we are delighted for him and his family that he's got this opportunity. We wish Alex all the best at Liverpool, and we look forward to seeing how he progresses there.
