McDonald Adds To Coaching Staff
Blackpool FC can confirm Bobby Mimms as the club’s new goalkeeping coach.
The 51-year-old worked with Neil McDonald in the same role at West Ham United last season, and will begin work at Bloomfield Road on Monday.
As a player he turned out for the likes of Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Blackburn Rovers on his way to making over 500 career appearances.
Now an experienced coach, he has held down roles at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Blackburn and most recently West Ham, amongst others.
After agreeing terms, Mimms said: “Obviously pre-season is coming up and I think it’s important to be at the club from day one.
“I’ve worked with Neil at Blackburn and West Ham as a coach, and we played together at Preston, so go back a long way.
“We know we work well together, so it was definitely a no-brainer to come to Blackpool and continue that,” he added.
At Bloomfield Road he’ll be working with goalkeepers Colin Doyle, Kyle Letheren and Myles Boney when pre-season gets underway on Monday.
