The '''Liverpool F.C. Reserves''' is the second string team of [[Liverpool F.C.|Liverpool Football Club]]. It is currently managed by [[Alex Inglethorpe]] and, as of the [[2012-13 Reserves season|2012-13 season]], competes as the '''Liverpool F.C. Under 21s''' in a national Under 21 League.
   
Following in the footsteps of its parent club, the Liverpool Reserves are one of the most successful reserve sides in English football history. They have claimed 20 League titles and in excess of 46 local cup competitions. However, although the Reserves play in hardened competition, it's primary purpose is to nurture talent emerging from the club's [[Liverpool Academy|Academy]]. To this end, the Reserves are most notable for providing the first team with such legendary players as [[Billy Liddell]], [[Phil Thompson]], [[Robbie Fowler]], [[Michael Owen]], [[Jamie Carragher]] and [[Steven Gerrard]]. Prior to the development of the Reserves as the Liverpool Under 23 squad, the Reserves was also used to help provide first team players with game time, if they were failing to get it at first team level, or if they were returning from injury, in order to develop their match fitness.

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. The most successful Liverpool Reserves coach however was [[Roy Evans]]. Evans spent most of his playing career as a Reserve team player, making only 11 appearances for the first team. After an injury ended his career in 1974, he was appointed coach of the Reserves by Paisley. 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.

==Current Squad==
There is no set squad for the Reserves. Most of the Reserve team players are those who are currently too old to play for the senior-most Academy team (the Under 18s), but who are yet to be fully integrated into first team. Alternatively, they may be younger Academy players who are performing at a level deemed superior to their age group.
