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.
