Saturday, 27th Oct 2018 09:50

Town have confirmed new manager Paul Lambert’s backroom staff with his Stoke assistant manager Stuart Taylor and fitness coach Jim Henry joining him at Portman Road, as previously reported by TWTD, along with first-team coach Matt Gill, who has been working as Norwich City’s U23s coach.

Former Limerick manager Taylor, 43, who was with Lambert at St Mirren in addition to spells at a number of Scottish clubs during his playing days, will assist the new Town manager having previously worked with him at Aston Villa and Wolves as well as Stoke.

Henry, a former Scotland international judo athlete, was on Lambert’s staff at the Potters and has also worked at Bury, Rangers, Hibs, Sunderland, Aston Villa and Celtic, working for Martin O’Neill at the last three clubs.

New first-team coach Gill started his playing career with Peterborough and also represented Notts County, Exeter and then Norwich, where he played under Lambert.

After spells at Walsall, Bristol Rovers and Tranmere, the 37-year-old former midfielder joined the staff at Carrow Road, working with the academy and until joining Town had been working as their U23s coach.

Three arms? Could be handy.

Like the look of the boys Lambert is bringing with him, especially Citys under 23 coach!

He has 3 arms, farmerpiles, yet he’s not the one with Norwich links... that’s surprising...

Really buzzing with the announcement of nicking Matt Gill, who has brought a number of Nardge youngsters into their first team. Well happy with Lambert too, of course.

AbujaBlue added 10:55 - Oct 27
I agree Shepton, to have another 'alleged' bully as assistant manager again would have been worrying.

Hope we keep our existing set up with Klug , Hogg , Nash etc

Welcome Paul, Stuart, Jim and Matt.

It sounds like a good, professional team are coming in who hopefully can sort out our players into an organised unit and instill come confidence into them.

That's more like it - much higher calibre staff than under the Hurst regime. Good luck Paul.

rfretwell added 11:43 - Oct 27
This must all be costing ME a pretty penny.

Sounds like a decent team. I like the idea of nicking the Budgies' U23 coach. That should, ahem, "annoy them considerably." (Just keeping the language clean, but you know what I mean.

Beware false Prophets which come to you in Ipswich clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous sister botherer's.

Welcome to Portman Rd, Make Ipswich Great Again! or Your Doom awaits you.

Just a bit of silly humour, no need meltdowns please.

This sounds a very promising set up. Out of interest, how are we with goalkeeper coaches

lightingblue added 13:07 - Oct 27
