Newcastle United announced today on their web-site that they have appointed Adam Sadler as their new reserve-team manager.
The young 28-year-old will replace fellow Geordie Lee Clark, who joined Glenn Roeder as assistant manager at Norwich City recently.
Newcastle have said that Adam will work closely with Terry McDermott at Newcastleâ€™s training ground.
Adam Sadler – obviously has impressed Big Sam at Newcastle
Adam Sadler has already been assistant academy director and goalkeeping coach with Newcastle, and this seems a significant promotion for Adam. Looks like Sam Allardyce thinks very highly of Sadler, in his short time at Newcastle. Sadler took charge of the last reserve team game, a 1-1 draw away to Everton, on 6th November.
Sam Allardyce has also just recruited Paul Barron from Middlesbrough as his new goalkeeping coach, after Terry Gennoe was forced to retire from that role because of a chronic back trouble.
Sam wanted to replace Gennoe with Fred Barber from his former club Bolton, but it looks like the appointment of Gary Megson as the new Bolton manager put an end to that alternative.Â Fred Barber worked with Gary Megson when he was West Bromwich manager and it looks like when Gary took over at Bolton, he decided to stay.
The staff under Sam Allardyce continues to change, and there’ll be more additions on the way. All we need now is a good run of results to get us back up there near the leaders.Â Â Â 😀
