Former Exeter City manager Alex Inglethorpe has moved from Academy boss at Tottenham Hotspurs to take over as manager of Liverpool reserves. While this has been known about for sometime, Liverpool FC have only made this announcement today.
The 41 year old has both played and managed Exeter. His last game for the Grecians was in a 2-1 win over Kidderminster in March 2001. In all he made 21 appearances for Exeter. His main playing career was the 5 seasons prior to St James Park which were with Leyton Orient, where he played over 100 times and scored a fair number of goals.
He’s known for cutting his teeth at Leatherhead. He spent some time then at Orient as part of the coaching staff. He then came to Exeter City in November 2004 after the departure of Eamonn Dolan to Reading.
He’ll be remembered for his time at Exeter City for building the foundations for Paul Tisdale’s subsequent sucess in getting the Club out of the Conference. No about Alex will be most remembered for being in charge when Exeter City, a non league team, went to Old Trafford to play Manchester United in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. To everyone’s surprise that team held the Premiership giants to a 0-0 and a replay back at the Park.
We wish Alex the best of luck at Liverpool.
