Liam Dolman is a defender, who joined the Club from Daventry Town during June 2014. He is from Northamptonshire, and started his career with Northampton Town, progressing from youth level to the first team, making his league debut at the end of the 2006/07 season and making over 50 appearances in League and FA Cup games for the Cobblers in the next two seasons. He then had a short spell playing Conference Football for Kidderminster Harriers in 2009/10 before joining Banbury United before moving to Daventry Town. After joining the Diamonds he had a successful first campaign, picking up the Manager’s Player of the Season award in 2014/15, as well as a Player of the Month award for February 2015 when he scored 6 goals from 4 games from his centre-back role. His goal at Long Buckby AFC was also chosen as Goal of the Season. He was a mainstay of the side in the 2015/16 season, picking up a Player of the Month award for his memorable contribution to the Diamonds’ record run in the FA Cup. The 2016/17 season was also a successful one as he took awards as the fans’ and players’ Player of the Season, as well as the manager’s Player of the Season award. He also reached a century of appearances for the Club during that campaign, and has now scored 30 goals for the club. He won the Manager’s Player of the Season award again in 2017/18. He signed a contract with the Club for the 2019/20 season during the summer of 2019.

22/01/22: Liam scored his 50th goal for the Club in the away match at Alvechurch.

16/04/22: Liam is due to make his 300th appearance for the Club in today’s home match against Bromsgrove Sporting.

21/05/22: The Club has today been advised that Club captain, Liam Dolman has left the Club. Liam joined AFC Rushden & Diamonds in 2014 and has decided that now is the right time to move on and find a new challenge within football.

Liam will be remembered for the 50 goals he scored, including a memorable 95th minute equaliser in The FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round at Barwell in October 2015 and more recently, a thunderstrike at Tamworth during the 2021/22 season.

First team manager, Andy Burgess, commented, “Liam has been fantastic for me since I came in, both on and off the pitch and he has been a magnificent servant for the football club over a number of years.

His input into the successes at the Club and the individual moments of brilliance he has served up will live long in the memories of every supporter and he leaves the club with everyone’s best wishes.

Bully feels the time is right to move on and he leaves on great terms. He will rightly be considered an AFCRD legend and he can be extremely proud of his achievements in a Diamonds shirt.”

We wish Liam, and his family, the very best of luck for the future.
