I didn’t want to leave when I did and I’m thrilled to be back at Gigg Lane. I’ve performed the dual role of goalkeeper/goalkeeper coach before at Crawley Town and Mansfield Town, so I’ve sort of gone through a transition phase to get to this point. This is my first full-time coaching role so I’m here to learn and I’m really looking forward to it.”
