THE Brewers secured Liam's services for a club record fee from Ross County in 2017 following a prolific two-year spell in the SPL that saw him score 48 goals in 99 appearances for the Staggies.

Belfast-born Liam began his career with Cliftonville scoring 19 times in his first full campaign. His goalscoring exploits earned him the Northern Ireland Football Writer's Player Of The Year Award in 2010.

After a trial with Celtic it was Bundesliga side Werder Bremen that took a chance on Liam's golascoring ability but after three games for their second string and he returned to his former club to regain his form.

In 2012/13 he scored 29 times as Cliftonville won the league title for the first time since 1998 and the title was retained the following year with Liam adding a further 21 goals. After signing a pre-contract agreement with Ross County Liam began to make his mark in Scotland.

He added the Scottish League Cup to his collection of winner's medals and improving his goalscoring record in each of his three seasons north of the border. Liam has now been recognised by Northern Ireland and he netted his first international goal in June 2017 in a friendly victory over New Zealand.

Boyce finished his last season in Scotland as the Premiership's top scorer in the with 23 goals before joining Albion - and Boyce recovered from a pre-season knee injury to notch his first Albion goal at Villa Park in a narrow 3-2 defeat to Aston Villa, scoring three goals in total including a memorable header at Sunderland.
