Coach Hogg Set to Join Newcastle
Friday, 14th Feb 2020 18:04

TWTD understands Town U23s joint-manager Chris Hogg is leaving Playford Road to take on a similar role at Newcastle United.

The 34-year-old has been coaching with the Town academy since hanging up his boots after leaving Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2013.

Hogg worked his way up the age groups before assisting Alan Lee with the U18s and for the last few seasons Gerard Nash with the U23s, helping them to top Professional Development League Two South last season.

The Middlesbrough-born former central defender assisted Bryan Klug during his spells as caretaker-boss in 2018 and briefly worked with the first team during Paul Hurst's time in charge.

Hogg initially joined Town as a young player when George Burley signed him from York City’s youth system in 2001 for compensation of £150,000, having won England caps at U15 and U16 levels.

Hogg, who is married to his former boss Burley’s daughter, Lisa, went on to play for the Young Lions’ U18s and U19s during his time at Town, although he never made a senior appearance for the Blues.

Ex-Town skipper and coach Tony Mowbray took him to Hibernian in 2005 and Hogg spent six years with the Edinburgh club, including a spell as captain.

Good luck to the lad.

Yes but what fee do we get for him? He's going to a PL club surely we get squillions in compensation?

Good luck with the move

Great move and well done.

Sinking ship and rats come to mind.

Yes. I always hoped for Nash and Hogg in charge of the first team. Should have had the job over Lambert and Hurst before him. Have a bad feeling this is another opportunity Evans has missed.

If Newcastle want him. You would like to believe we are doing our up most to keep him.
Or maybe we are going the ITFC way and have sideways lined up to take over.
We’re used to down grading, so this sounds possible.

A great opportunity for Hogg but sadly more evidence of our fast declining club, losing assets and unlikely to replace them with similar quality.

I’m not going to call him a lad for sure. Good luck from me

Apologies Cakeman - intended to agree with you, fat finger syndrome.

Like rats leaving a sinking ship.

Best of luck Hoggy
I’m not surprised by this following Lambert’s throw away comment that players don’t learn anything in the U23s.

He was once lauded as an England captain cos he was captain of England u18 team whilst at York . Didn’t train on unfortunately but still had a good career . I don’t blame him bettering himself and you never know he might become our manager at a future date

could have hung around for couple of weeks and taken over from Lambert ,but there you go, good luck to him.

Pity some of the “moaning rats” On here don’t leave .

Edmundo added 13:14 - Feb 15
Something seriously wrong if he's leaving: we can't pretend we're changing the culture from within if we're losing some loyal servants of recent years. Butcher back is good but is that papering over the cracks?

ITFCsince73 added 14:56 - Feb 15
Along with 4 and 8 arniem.

All the best Chris sad to see you go, good to see you back one day in a higher capacity.
