Goalkeeping coach Eric Steele has said he's happy to help out at Shrewsbury following the departure of our goalkeeping coach the other day.
Steele and Graham Turner are good friends stretching back to their time together at Wolverhampton Wanderers, and with Steele following Sir Alex Ferguson out of the Manchester United doors, he feels it's the perfect chance to help out the man who gave him his first job as a goalie coach.
Steele held the first training sessions yesterday and even if he's only here for a few weeks and this doesn't turn into something more, which seems unlikely, the experience and knowledge he has will certainly aid our keepers.
Speaking to the Official Site after joining on, Eric said.
'In 1988 I left the game at 34, my choice, when I was at Derby. I went into a pub/restuarant, 21 staff, but it gave me the opportunity to start my coaching career which I had always wanted to do. Graham was the first one that rang. He had Mark Kendall, who had possibly been injured, and Wolves were in all sorts of competitions so he said could I possibly come in and work the goalkeepers. That really was the advert of part time goalkeeping coaches so I've always been grateful to Graham for the chance.'
Steele ends by explaining that he'll be doing this week, and then talk about next week as he has commitments that start again shortly after that, but he hopes to have helped find a new permanent coach by then.
