Backroom Staff Addition

Updated: Oct 19, 2019

Reading City Football Club have successfully recruited a First Team Coach to work alongside First Team Manager Simon Johnson and First Team Assistant Manager Sam Woodruff.

Our 2018/19 Campaign was a difficult season for our first team management duo of Simon Johnson and Sam Woodruff whose tenure started in December 2018 having taken over from outgoing manager Rob Creech.

As they look ahead to their first full season in charge at The Rivermoor, change is afoot with several new additions to the playing squad through the door, but the changes don't stop there as not only is the squad being strengthened they've also added to their backroom staff with the arrival of Ghaffar Ghoddusi who joins the club as our new First Team Coach.

Ghaffar currently works as a coach with Reading Football Club and is completing his UEFA B License.

We spoke to First Team Manager Simon Johnson about the new addition to our backroom team, here's what he had to say:

"Ghaffar is a great addition to our management team. He is a forward thinking coach who goes above and beyond to help progress the players. He has great knowledge of the game and I can’t wait to continue working with him".

Assistant First Team Manager Sam Woodruff also commented on the arrival of Ghaffar, here's what he had to say:

"So pleased Ghaffar has come on board, his work ethic and attention to detail will only help the players get better during the season”.
