The first new signing of the close season has been finalised, with Salfordian central defender Danny Livesey putting pen to paper on a two-year deal.
Thirty-two year-old Danny was born in Salford and started his career with Bolton Wanderers, making his Premier League debut in a home game versus Liverpool aged just seventeen. Loan spells with Notts County, Rochdale and Blackpool followed before a permanent transfer to Carlisle United, completed on Christmas Eve 2004.
Carlisle were in the Conference when Danny signed for them and he was an integral part of the side that rose to League One level by 2007.He was named in the League One team of the year for 2007-2008 and was also appointed club captain at Brunton Park.
Having made well over 300 appearances for Carlisle, Danny signed on loan for Wrexham in January 2014 and the following summer he moved to then Conference North side Barrow. Once again he made a huge impact as the Cumbrians secured the divisional title on the final day of the 2013-2014 season.
Danny succeeded former Salford defender Simon Grand as Barrow club captain and after chalking up over 100 appearances for the Bluebirds has now decided to make the switch to Moor Lane.
A great addition to a squad that will be re-shaped over the summer, Danny is a vastly experienced six-foot-two central defender and we’d like to extend a warm Ammie welcome to the first new face of the summer.
