Josh Brown signs up as keeper coach
Scarborough Athletic have appointed Josh Brown as goalkeeper coach.
The former George Pindar School and Scarborough Football Scholarship student has returned to town after enjoying a role as elite goalkeeper coach at Championship side Watford's academy.
The long-time Boro supporter is now keen to get going as an integral part of boss Darren Kelly's backroom staff.
He said: "Working at a Premier League club in Watford was brilliant and great experience for me, but now I'm looking forward to getting going with Boro.
"It took four phone calls with Darren Kelly to get things sorted. I managed to squeeze in a few training sessions and the game against Garforth in before Lockdown arrived.
"Ryan Whitley has returned to York now, but it was great to work with him for that short period. He has a big future ahead of him.
"Ethan Hodgson is another keeper that could be very good as well. I can't wait until football starts up again so I can really get going with it.
Josh comes from a family of Boro fans, with dad James, who owns Brown's Caravan Park, being a major sponsor of the club.
He added: "I've seen it all with my family at Boro games. We were at the Chelsea FA Cup game with the old club and I was a ball boy for one of the games against York City. We saw the demise of Scarborough FC and then the Bridlington years with the current club.
"It is a great opportunity for me and I'm really looking forward to playing my part in pushing the club forward."
