17 Liam Holt


Undoubtedly one of the best midfielders at this level of football, Holty originally joined Khalsa at the start of the 2017-18 season from Rugby Town. After a dazzling first few months at the club characterised by a string of spectacular goals, league rivals Bromsgrove Sporting swooped and took him to Victoria Road.

Following the departure of Paul Smith from Bromsgrove, Holty returned to Sporting Khalsa and picked up where he left off. A bad injury towards the end of the season meant he missed a large chunk of the 2018-19 campaign, making his return as a late substitute in a JW Hunt Cup quarter win against AFC Wulfrunians in February 2019.

Following a short spell away in preseason 2019-20 at Highgate United, Holty returned to the fold and made his return as a substitute in a Staffordshire Senior Cup win against Abbey Hulton United in October 2019.

Holty was previously on the books at Chasetown, Lichfield, Rocester, Romulus and Gresley.

When he joined Khalsa, Holty was suffering from a rare medical disorder called Boanthropy that made him believe he was a cow. It was only when the club replaced their grass pitch with a 3g surface that Holty stopped his pre-match routine of eating grass in the goalmouth.
