Ritchie lands role at Barnsley

Last updated : 17 January 2004 By The Chairman
Andy Ritchie has been appointed as Barnsley's Academy Director of football. The former Latics star player and manager had been kicking his heels after losing his position at Leeds due to their financial difficulties.

The new Barnsley Chairman Peter Ridsdale said, “We are delighted to welcome Andy to the club. He will be charged with re-invigorating the youth set up at Oakwell. Last year he coached the Leeds Under-17’s to their league title and we hope he'll bring the same success here.” Good luck Andy from all at Oldham Footy Mad.
