Backroom Staff Addition
Reading City Football Club have successfully recruited a First Team Goalkeeping Coach to work alongside First Team Manager Simon Johnson, First Team Assistant Manager Sam Woodruff and First Team Coach Ghaffar Ghoddusi
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 recent arrival of First Team Coach Ghaffar Ghoddusi, joining them now is Shaun Allaway who joins as Fist Team Goalkeeping Coach.
Shaun has a wonderful career as a goalkeeper for Reading Football Club, Leeds United, Grimsby, Walsall, Queens Park Rangers, Slough town & Staines town. He’s also represented England at Youth Level from Under 15 to Under 20.
We spoke to First Team Manager Simon Johnson about the new addition to our backroom team, here's what he had to say:
“Sean has a brilliant playing background and will bring great experience to our goalkeepers and to the changing room. Very happy to have him on board!”
