Shrews discard assistant

11 June 2009 10:49
Shrewsbury Town manager Paul Simpson has revealed his intention to replace departed assistant John McMahon with specialist coaches. McMahon has swapped life in League Two to become Liverpool reserves' head coach, leaving a void in the coaching hierarchy at the New Meadow. However, rather than appoint a replacement assistant manager, Simpson is looking to bring in coaches to improve certain skills among his side. Simpson told BBC Radio Shropshire: "I'd like to bring in people with specific skills to work on specific areas. "It gives me the chance to juggle the budget and bring in a couple of members of staff that can benefit everybody. "Hopefully it'll bring us more voices, more opinions and more expertise to help the players. "What I have to do is look around and try and get a backroom staff that can maximise everything we've got at the club." Simpson is hoping to bring in the new coaches in time for his players return for pre-season training.
