Categories: Uncategorized

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABlues boss Rod Stringer has finally got his man with the appointment of Nick Haycock as the club’s new assistant manager.

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.
