Liam has been regarded as one of the Northern League's top goalkeepers for a number of years, having made his name with Dunston UTS.
Experienced but with plenty years ahead of him, he ended a seven-year stay with Dunston - where he became captain - to sign for South Shields in the summer of 2016.
He arrived at Mariners Park with already two appearances under his belt for Shields, having had a short spell at the club as a teenager in 2005.
His other former clubs include Gateshead, Ryton, Chester-le-Street Town, Durham City and Tow Law Town, but it is at Dunston where he is most fondly thought of, having kept well over 100 clean sheets there.
Liam was also a key part of the team which won the FA Vase at Wembley in 2012, beating West Auckland Town 2-0 in the final.
