Marvin Bartley – Livingston First Team Captain & Reserve Team Coach
Marvin Bartley will lead the Livingston Football Club next season after officially being confirmed as the club’s new captain for 2020/21 season. Having joined the Lions from Hibernian last Summer, he spent large parts of last season deputising for Alan Lithgow and will now take on the captains armband for the new campaign.
Featuring in 36 of the 38 matches last season, Marvin has quickly become a stalwart of the Lions squad with his team-mates thriving off his leadership and experience. As fate would have it his only goal for the club so far came at Tynecastle against his old club Hearts, one that he certainly enloyed.
The league winning reserve squad also felt the benefit of his experience last season as he joined the coaching staff and helped steer the team to the Reserve League Two title and whilst in lockdown, he has continued to help the younger members of that squad with regular zoom training sessions to keep the boys involved and interacting.
