Many famous figures from Liverpool's coaching past have taken the Reserve team helm, including [[Bob Paisley]], who would go on to be the most successful manager of the Liverpool first team in the club's history.

Evans subsequently led the Reserves to no fewer than nine Central League championships, including three in his first three seasons, a four in a row sequence from 1978 and two more in the early 1980s.
