Gaffer grateful for Academy manager's continual helpSteve Clarke has praised Academy manager Eamonn Dolan for his assistance and advice since he took charge in December.
Dolan has stood alongside Clarke on the touchline for all of his first-team matches so far and has also provided him with some in-depth knowledge about the club.
And Clarke says that learning from people like Dolan is vital for any new manager of a football club.
He said in a recent press conference: “When you come to any club as an outsider, a new person to the club, it’s always important to have people close to you that have been there for a long time and have a good feeling for the club, know the people and the history.
“In the short time that I’ve been here, Eamonn’s help has been invaluable.”
