Staff changes

3 July 2015

Dougie Freedman has made some alterations to his backroom staff.

Jimmy Gilligan and Steve Sutton, who worked in the club’s academy before stepping up to assist Freedman with first-team duties last season, now hold permanent positions under the manager.

Gilligan, who enjoyed a successful season as manager of Forest’s Under 21s in 2014-15, is now first-team coach and Sutton is now in charge of coaching the club’s senior goalkeepers.

Filling the vacated roles are two new arrivals: Under 21s manager Jamie Fullarton and academy goalkeeping coach Ian Bennett.

Both men enjoyed lengthy playing careers, Fullarton as a midfielder for the likes of St Mirren, Crystal Palace and Brentford and Bennett as a goalkeeper who spent 12 years at Birmingham City.
