The club has confirmed the appointment of Rob Williams as Academy Manager, replacing Miguel Llera, who left the club earlier this year.

Williams is no stranger to the club as he previously held the role of Head of Coaching from 2017 until 2019, though he spent the last two-and-a-half years as Head of Academy Coach Development at Shrewsbury Town.

Williams, who holds a UEFA A License and Advanced Youth Award, admitted he is pleased to be back at the Banks's, and is looking forward to the challenge.

Speaking via the club's official website, Rob said; "The overriding feeling is one of excitement.

"It’s been a while since I’ve been here last time and I think we’ve got a real opportunity to push and drive the programme forward.

"I was here from September 2017 to September 2019 in the Head of Coaching role and there’s a number of staff still in the academy programme that were here at the time so those relationships already exist which I think will really help me in terms of coming back in and start to instil some of the things that we’re going to do moving forward.

"I think we’ve got an opportunity to get this academy back to where it was a number of years ago and potentially become the best Cat.3 in the country.

"That’s the ambition, that’s the drive that I’ve got. My job is to instil that into the staff, support the staff and put processes and procedures in place to help us all develop the programme to where it should be."
