The Coasters announced the signing of 26-year-old central midfielder, Liam Nolan, in early October 2020.

The 6ft 3’ former Northern Ireland U21 international signed for Jim Bentley’s side following his release from Macclesfield Town.

 Nolan arrives with the hope of bringing stature and experience to the heart of the midfield area, adding his presence to an already strong and exciting part of the pitch alongside Danny Philliskirk and David Perkins.

Starting his career with Premier League side, Everton, the Liverpiudlian has the pedigree and background of being schooled at the highest level. Following his departure from Goodison Park, Nolan made his way to Crewe Alexandra, where he would become a valuable member of their first team squad.

From Gresty Road, it was then a move over to Accrington Stanley. During his time at Stanley he established himself as an integral part of John Coleman’s side, as he was instrumental in their promotion as champions from Sky Bet League Two. Remaining at the Wham Stadium and playing in League One, a new challenge did then arise for the midfielder as he joined Salford City on loan. Once again, he played a part in a promotion winning season, for the Ammies this time during 2018/19.

Last season saw Nolan play for Halifax Town. No longer a stranger to what it takes to earn promotion, the midfielder did his upmost to try and add another but it wasn’t to be as the Shaymen would lose out in the play-offs during 2019/20.

Now joining the ranks at Mill Farm, the winning mentality and desire for promotion played a major factor for both parties in the recruitment process of another impressive recruit.
