Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce the appointment of Matt Lawlor as the new Youth Development Phase Lead Coach.
Lawlor has been a coach at the club’s academy, but will now step up into his new role where he will oversea the Youth Development Phase – which focuses on players aged 12-16 years-old.
Lawlor spoke to the club’s iFollow in an exclusive interview, and stated he can’t wait to get started in his new role.
