Defender Danny Higginbotham has admitted that he endured a spell where he had fallen out of love with football.
Higginbotham has recently signed a deal with Conference Premier side Chester, and he has revealed that the move has left him feeling rejuvenated.
The 34-year-old told BBC Radio Merseyside: "I'm getting my love of football back.
"Last Saturday was the first time in a long time that I've had that feeling and it's something that I've missed."
Higginbotham has previously played for Stoke City and Sheffield United during his career.
