In the first of our player profile series, we chat to goalkeeper and prolific shot-stopper Liam Peverley and learn more about him outside of football. Liam joined Durham City AFC in November 2022, as part of the new squad rebuild and has played in all fixtures apart from the clubs first game back against Norton & Stockton Ancients. Liam has previously played at teams such as Sunderland West End and Doxford Park, but has acclimatised well to Durham and already proven his brilliant shot-stopping capabilities and fantastic disruption.
