Former Hearts reserve manager Liam Fox has been confirmed as David Martindale’s assistant manager at Livingston.

Fox spent five years at Tynecastle before leaving the club with reserve football in flux due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.

He then joined up with Livingston, where he spent many years playing. At first, he was helping out Martindale when he took over from Gary Holt on a temporary basis. Now Fox is back at Livingston permanently, after Martindale was named as the Premiership club’s manager.

Fox seems thrilled to be back at Livingston on a permanent basis.

“Delighted and privileged”

“I am delighted and privileged to become assistant manager of Livingston Football Club – a club I was also lucky enough to play for and captain during my playing career” he said (official Livingston website).

“It’s my aim to help the manager put a team on the pitch that wins football matches and do so in a way that the supporters are proud of” Fox continued.

Fox’s confirmed return to Livingston has come at a good time for the club. They have won their last four games in all competitions and are in the Betfred Cup semi-final. There is a semi-final against St Mirren to look forward to next month.

Has contributed to winning run

Fox’s contribution to that run might have gone under the radar. However, they seem to be appreciated by all at Livingston. That could well be why his return to the club has been confirmed. His experience at working with Hearts for so many years can only be a boost.
