Both will work closely with myself and my staff to not only develop our youth players and bring them through to first team level, but to continually develop and improve the pathway in the club. We have some great potential in our youth setup and with the addition of this team it will give some of those first hand exposure of adult football. It’s been something I have been keen to implement so to get this done is brilliant. I’m delighted to have both Lee and Rich at the club and I look forward to working with them”.
