Former Skelmersdale United manager Tommy Lawson isn’t ruling out a quick return to the touchlines of the EVO-STIK Northern Premier League.

Lawson, who was succeeded at the EVO-STIK NPL Premier Division’s basement club by Alan Rogers this week after ten years at the helm, hailed his time at Stormy Corner as a “fantastic journey” before telling the local media he hadn’t ruled out returning to management.
Appointed as the successor to Paul Gallagher for the 2006-07 season, Lawson, pictured, led the club to promotion to the EVO-STIK NPL’s top flight after five consecutive play-off finishes in his first five seasons.

Lawson, who also developed a long line of Non-League graduates to the pro game along the way including the likes of Craig Noone, Ben Tolitt and Sean McConville, told “This is something I’ve done for 25 years and if someone wanted to speak to me and tap into my experience, I would be happy to speak to any ambitious and well-run club.

“Seeing some of the young lads come up and turn professional has been brilliant. Also getting to the play-off finals five times and coming runners-up twice. It has been a fantastic journey and a great ten years. I’m very proud of what I have achieved at Skelmersdale and I thank them wholeheartedly.”

He added: “I wish the club all the best in the future and also the new manager. I hope he has as much fun as I had.”
