David Bayliss

David Anthony BAYLISS

Liverpool born Dave joined Rochdale from school and made over 200 first team appearances for the Spotlands side as a tough tackling, no-nonsense central defender.
His refusal to sign a new contract at Rochdale worked to his advantage as Luton manager Joe Kinnear, suffering from an injury crisis and desperately looking for defensive cover, snapped him up in December 2001 and he helped the Hatters to immediate promotion from Division Three.
Sadly, Dave was then hit by a succession of injuries and after returning to full fitness was unable to command a regular first team place. He was firstly loaned to Chester in 2004 and then transferred to Wrexham the following year.
Dave then became joint manager at Barrow before assuming total responsibility at Holker Street.
