Date of birth
Cambridge-born, Liam returned to the City when signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with United during the final day of the January 2017 transfer window.
Aged 26, he was a member of the U’s youth academy before moving on to Histon in 2005, then West Bromwich Albion where he penned a first professional contract. Liam, who made three Premier League appearances for the Baggies, was loaned to Vaasan Palloseura in 2012, playing 18 games in the Finnish top flight, prior to another temporary spell with Scunthorpe. A composed and reliable presence in central midfield, he switched to League One side Chesterfield in August 2014, appearing in 49 matches for the Spireites before signing a deal at the Abbey Stadium. Liam missed the final four months of last season with a back injury, but has now returned to full fitness.
