Morrison Joins Band At Mossley Helm

Peter Band has brought in Lloyd Morrison to manage Evo-Stik League Division One North club Mossley alongside him for the coming season.

Morrison, 41, has spent the last 12 months in charge at North West Counties League side Winsford United, where he led his side to a 4th place finish last season, just four points behind champions Padiham, and also led them to success in the Mid-Cheshire FA Cup, where they beat Northwich Victoria in the final.

After an amateur playing career which saw him play for Chadderton, Maine Road and Mid Cheshire League side Styal, Morrison became player-manager at Styal, winning the League title in his second season in charge and also the Cheshire Amateur Cup.

He then stepped up to the North West Counties League with Flixton and with little or no budget took the club from adrift at the bottom of the NWCFL when he took over to avoiding relegation. They then finished 15th in his first full season and 8th place in 2011/12 before he took over at Winsford last summer.

Morrison (pictured) is noted for his playing contacts on the North West Non-League scene and Band is delighted to have him on board.

Band said: "I've known Lloyd for a long time, we work close by each other in our day jobs and he is someone who has impressed me both as a person and as a manager. He has great contacts in the game and he will attract some quality players to the club. I'm really looking forward to working alongside him."
