Consultant Chief Scout
First Team Staff
Date of birth
A stalwart in the English game, former England Under-21 international Breacker joined Wanderers in June 2016 as chief scout having worked alongside manager Parkinson at Bradford.
Starting out as an apprentice with Luton Town in the early 1980s, the full-back made over 200 appearances at Kenilworth Road where he also helped the Hatters to their shock League Cup Final success over Arsenal in 1988.
Snapped up by West Ham United just two years later, the defender settled into life at Upton Park with ease and became a reliable figure in defence during his nine years in East London.
Ending his playing career with two seasons at Loftus Road with Queens Park Rangers, Breacker worked as a coach under Ian Holloway with the R’s before following him to both Plymouth Argyle and Leicester City.
Linking up with current Bolton boss for the first time in the summer of 2009 when he joined Charlton Athletic as his assistant, the 50-year-old spent a brief spell with Millwall before reuniting with Parkinson as the Bantams' chief scout.
