David Hopkin


Where is David Hopkin now?

A non-nonsense central midfielder who had spells in the Premier League with Chelsea and Bradford City as well as Leeds United, David Hopkin had to retire at the age of 33 after a recurring ankle injury.

Having already relocated back to his Scottish homeland, where he was player-coach at Greenock Morton (including one game as a joint caretaker manager), Hopkin then had spells at non-league sides Port Glasgow and Maryhill FC before returning to the club in 2012 as reserve team manager alongside Jonatan Johansson.

In 2013, Hopkin was promoted to assistant manager but resigned from the role five months later to concentrate on his duties with the club’s reserve team.

After continued success with the Greenock Morton reserves, David Hopkin left the club in January 2015 to take up a new role as manager Mark Burchill’s assistant head coach at Livingston FC.

When Burchill left the side in December 2015, Hopkin took charge of the side on a temporary basis until the end of the season.

In May 2016, Hopkin was appointed as Livingston FC’s head coach on a permanent basis and had a tremendous first season in charge winning the Scottish League One title.
