Fleetwood Town are happy to announce Joe Riley has joined the club as the new Head of Recruitment.
Riley had a decade-long footballing career that started at Bolton Wanderers, where he picked up three Premier League appearances, with his debut coming in a 5-0 win over Stoke City back in 2011.
After moving away from Wanderers, he then helped his next side, Bury, earn their way back to League One after finishing third in the league, before making 80 more appearances for Shrewsbury Town, Plymouth Argyle, and Mansfield Town combined.
The former full-back then was forced into retirement a year ago after a knee injury and decided to stay in the industry, working for a football agency where he worked alongside a number of professionals.
The 30-year-old has now made the move to join the Cods and has been instrumental in the dealings from the summer transfer window so far.
Welcome to Fleetwood, Joe!
