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.

The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
