LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB has named Ernst & Young alumnus Andy Hughes as its chief financial officer.

Hughes, who trained with the Big Four firm before holding executive positions at Hilton Hotels and Cendant Corporation, takes up the role next month and will be responsible for all the club's financial operations.

He replaces Phillip Nash, who stepped down in February after five years as CFO. Most recently Hughes was chief financial officer at Guoman and Thistle Hotels.

Ian Ayre, LFC managing director, said:"As we continue with our growth it is essential that we have the right experience in these key positions. Andy has a long track record of delivering successful results in a variety of challenging roles."
