NAYLOR TO STAY AS GOALKEEPING COACH

23 May 2013

Stuart Naylor will remain is goalkeeping coach at Bristol Rovers.

The former Bristol City coach, who had a career as a goalkeeper that spanned more than 20 years, took up the role until the end of last season, but will now stay in the club in a full time post.

Naylor, 50, began coaching at the end of his playing career at Rushden and Diamonds, moving to Oldham Athletic, before joining Bristol City in 2005.

Manager John Ward said: "Stuart is going to stay, which is great, he is a local boy and I know him from days gone by.

"He worked with us at the tail end of last season, and he was excellent. 

"We have got young goalkeepers, and we have an experienced keeper in Steve Mildenhall if he stays. But Stuart also has contacts of goalkeepers if we need to move in that direction.

"I think it is a really good move to that kind of person on board, with his knowledge, and I trust him, and I think that is key as well."
