Following the departure of former goalkeeper coach Mark Crossley, manager Lee Johnson has today brought in John Vaughan as his replacement.

As a player Vaughan made over 400 appearances with the likes of Cambridge, Preston and Lincoln City and played his part in four promotion winning campaigns.

Having hung up his gloves and moved into coaching many years ago, the turning 51 year old tomorrow – told the Official Site that he was relishing the new challenge now ahead of him.

‘I’m really looking forward to working with Lee Johnson and the rest of the staff and players. It’s a genuinely exciting time for everyone connected with the Club. We have got some really talented players, including our goalkeepers, and I can’t wait to get cracking for the new campaign.’

During his time at Cambridge, he actually worked under Gary Johnson – Lee’s father and now manager of Cheltenham Town.

He most recently worked with Lee Clark at Birmingham City between July 2012 and October 2014, but prior to that he was at Huddersfield Town and played a huge role in the development of Alex Smithies.
