Liam Scully

Liam Scully has more than 20 years of experience working in football and communities, having started his career via an apprenticeship and working his way up to become Chief Executive of Lincoln City.

 He is responsible for the day-to-day running of the Imps on behalf of the fans, directors and investors, including heading up a seven-man senior management team, and  more than 150 employees. He joined Lincoln City in the summer of 2017 as they returned to the EFL, helping guide the club to a further promotion to League One where they reached the 2020-21 play-off final.

 Prior to joining Lincoln, Liam spent 16 years in various roles at Doncaster Rovers and the wider Club Doncaster group – starting as an apprentice funded by the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) and graduating to a spell as Foundation chief executive then chief operating officer of Club Doncaster. 

 That rise through the ranks culminated in Liam being inducted into the National Apprenticeship Hall of Fame in 2007. The Hall of Fame recognises outstanding achievement in enterprise and business from those who started off their working life through an apprenticeship scheme.

 Liam also holds voluntary offices including chair of the English Football League Trust (EFLT), director of Lincolnshire County FA, trustee of Lincoln City Foundation, along with ambassador roles at the Asian Sports Foundation and XP Free School Trust. He has underpinned his public and private sector service with high-quality education and training: with a postgraduate certificate in strategic leadership (University of Chester), Diploma in Leadership and Management (ILM), along with being a graduate of the Kennedy Senior Leaders training programme.
