Haycock joins coaching staff
Haycock spent ten years at West Ham United, most recently as under-21 coach working closely with manager Sam Allardyce, assistant Neil McDonald, first-team coach Ian Hendon and Under-18s manager Steve Potts. His current full-time job sees him employed by the Premier League in a player development role.
Stringer is delighted to add Haycock to the coaching staff at the ProKit UK Stadium: “Nick’s got a lot of experience, and it’s great to have him on board. I’ve been looking for a replacement for Paul Hilton, and Nick is perfect for us.
“We need to tighten thing up a bit and to start winning games, and I’m sure he’ll be a big help to us.”
Steve Pitt will continue to be general football manager for the Blues, focussing on identifying potential signings as well as being involved on match-days, while Tony Fenn continues as assistant coach.
