Liversedge and Sportsbible star Alfie Raw is the subject of this week’s edition of our Player Profile series.
The ‘Sedge midfielder has been a key man for Jonathan Rimmington’s men for some time and he’s shown a liking for scoring lots of goals – some of the spectacular variety.

Biggest Influence on Footballing Career
Some of the coaches I had at Huddersfield, Tony Carss, Marc Bridge-Wilkinson amongst others.
Probably last season (2019/20) with Sedge, personally I had scored 14/15 goals the most I ever have and we were on a long unbeaten run and on course for promotion before the season was cancelled.
Lowest Moment in Football
Released by Huddersfield at 18
Most Memorable Match
Probably the NCEL League Cup final a couple of years ago (2019) against Worksop at the Keepmoat, we lost unfortunately but I thought we were very unlucky on the day but it was good experience and nice to see a big crowd.
Funniest Moment in Football
Joe Walton going in net in a League Cup game away at Barton and even saving a penalty in the shoot out to help send us through.
First semi-professional manager and club
Rimmo at Liversedge
Non League Debut
Garforth Town away back in 2017 for ‘Sedge (February 2017)
First Red Card (at semi-professional level)
Never had one!
First Goal (at semi-professional level):
For Liversedge away at Pickering in 2017. I finished off a decent team move. I think I was in midfield with the likes of Cody Cromack and Harry Blakey that day.
What do you want to achieve in football in the future
I want to play as high as I can for as long as I can.
Favourite Non League Ground I’ve played at (barring your own club)
Probably Worksop always enjoyed going there knowing there would be a decent crowd and it’d be a tough game.
