Iain Brunskill appointed as development coach

Former Liverpool Assistant Academy Technical Director joins Bolton Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers are delighted to confirm the appointment of Iain Brunskill as the club’s new development coach.

Brunskill brings a wealth of experience to Bolton, having most recently held the role of Youth Coach Educator at The Football Association.

He started his coaching career at Liverpool, where he held the position of Assistant Academy Technical Director for over ten years before enjoying later spells with Blackburn and Floriana.

“I’m delighted to be at Bolton Wanderers,” Brunskill told bwfc.co.uk. “It’s a wonderful opportunity at a wonderful football club. The club has an excellent structure and facilities.

“I’ve had 18 months with The FA, which was good and really beneficial.

“The manager has come from a development background and we’ve already spoken about how important it is for us to be promoting from within. 

“We have a big group of development players and I’m looking forward to working with them.

“I know a lot of the guys already at the academy and we have a good and very experienced setup. It’s now up to myself to work alongside Andy Hughes and push our development players on.”
