Liversedge land Ross McCormack

Liversedge have announced the impressive signing of former Leeds United star Ross McCormack.

McCormack joins the club as a player/director of football ahead of the new Pitching In NPL East Division season.

The 36-year-old enjoyed a glittering spell at Elland Road, scoring 58 times and adding 31 assists during 157 games over a four-season period.

He went on to join Fulham before subsequently linking up with Aston Villa in August 2016, in a move worth approximately £12m.

At international level, McCormack has been capped 12 times by Scotland, scoring twice.

He made his national team debut in a 3-1 defeat to the Czech Republic in May 2008, coming on as a substitute.

McCormack's move to the Clayborn Ground is a major coup for Sedge, who were relegated from the Northern Premier League last season.

They begin their new campaign at home to Cleethorpes Town on Saturday 12 August.
