Goalkeeping coach joins the ranks

Frankie Bunn has a new goalkeeper coach in Steve Hale. Hale held similar roles at Walsall, Swindon Town and Forest Green Rovers, and also runs his own professional goalkeeping school. After working with Daniel Iversen, Zeus de la Paz and Ewan McFarlane he has been asked to join the club on a permanent basis.

Hale said: “I’ve been at the club for a couple of weeks now, I’ve done four games and I have enjoyed it. Frankie and the backroom staff have been brilliant and have made me feel very welcome and so have the team. It has been great to work with Daniel and young Ewan whilst Zeus has been injured. I managed to get Alex Palmer to come in on loan when Dan had to go off on international duty and he did really well making his Football League debut. It’s a club with good tradition and I’m pleased to be here.”
