Fleetwood Town can confirm Steve Burr has joined the club as a Senior Club Scout bringing more than 30 years of experience to Highbury Stadium.
The 59-year-old, a well-known name around the non-league circuit having managed nine clubs since retiring as a player in 2000, will be tasked with supporting the clubs main recruitment function and naturally, given his background, unearthing the latest line of untapped talent outside of the EFL.
On the news, Town CEO Steve Curwood said: “It’s great to have Steve on board, he’s someone who knows non-league football inside out and has many contacts at all levels of the game both home and abroad.
“With Fleetwood Town’s history we know more than most the sort of talent which is out there in the lower leagues, and feel Steve’s contacts can help us bring the best of them to the club in the coming years.
"He will be a great addition to our network of scouts out in the field and the technical recruitment staff here at Poolfoot’."
Meanwhile, Town’s Head of Recruitment Steve Davis has left the club to take up a role at Everton.
The former Southampton and Burnley defender will link-up with the club’s former Technical Director Gretar Steinsson at Goodison Park after six years at Highbury.
Curwood added: “Everyone at Fleetwood Town would like to thank Steve for all his hard work and dedication over the years and congratulate him on what is a great move to the Premier League.
“We now have a growing network of former employees who have gained great experience at Fleetwood Town and are now moving in the top Division and that’s something we are proud of with staff joining Everton, Manchester United and Wolves to name a few in recent years.”
