China Role for Blues Legend Butcher
Monday, 29th Jul 2019 09:43
Blues and England legend Terry Butcher has been handed the role of defensive coach with Chinese Super League side Guangzhou R&F.
Butcher, 60, will be assisting boss Dragan Stojkovic with the ninth-placed club until the end of 2019.
The appointment means Butcher will be standing down his role on BBC Radio Suffolk's Life’s a Pitch which he took on last season.
Butcher’s new job is his first in management since leaving Newport County in 2015, although he was briefly appointed Philippines manager in 2018 but the deal broke down before he had started the position.

Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
