Temporary Goalkeeping Coach Appointed..

Post by Steve Russell »

From the Club...
'ANDREW Sparkes has joined the club as goalkeeping coach, replacing Gavin Ward on a short-term basis.
Ward is undergoing knee surgery this week which will prevent him from being able to fulfil his duties as first
team goalkeeping coach for the remainder of the season.

Sparkes began his coaching in his native Wales with Swansea City before enjoying a seven-year spell in the MLS
with New York Red Bulls, working with the U23 and U18 goalkeepers.

Following a year with FC Red Bull Salzburg in Austria, Sparkes returned to the Liberty Stadium and remained for
six years as head of academy goalkeeping.

More recently, he spent four years as first-team goalkeeping coach with Southampton and joined Rubén Sellés
when he moved from St Mary’s to Reading last summer.

We welcome Andrew to the club and wish Gavin well with his surgery and rehab.'
