Bobby Mimms confirmed as Wanderers' new goalkeeping coach

Experienced coach becomes latest addition to the club's backroom staff

Bolton Wanderers are delighted to announce the appointment of Bobby Mimms as the club’s new first team goalkeeping coach.

The 51-year-old joins Neil Lennon’s backroom set-up from Blackpool, having previously held the same position with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers and West Ham United in the Premier League, as well as with Oldham Athletic and the Bahrain national side.

Featuring for no less than 13 teams during his playing days, Mimms famously served as Neville Southall and Tim Flowers’ understudies at Everton and Blackburn respectively, and was a member of either club’s 1986/87 First Division and 1994/95 Premiership-winning squads.

The former England Under-21s international also started for Everton in the 1986 FA Cup Final against Liverpool, before replacing Ray Clemence as Tottenham Hotspur’s first-choice goalkeeper in 1988 prior to his move to Blackburn.

Mimms will now work closely with Ben Amos and Ross Fitzsimons ahead of Saturday’s season opener against Derby County at Macron Stadium.
