Weston-super-Mare have announced the signing of Chris Barker as assistant head coach.
Barker is a very experienced defender and coach who was, until yesterday, both player and a coach at Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South & West side Hereford FC.
He has played at several league clubs including Barnsley, Cardiff City, Queens Park Rangers and Wolves and was manager at Aldershot Town in 2015.
Head coach Scott Bartlett is delighted to have signed Barker and said: “This is a fantastic appointment and a real coup for the club. I have got to know ‘Barks’ over the last few years in our roles at Forest Green Rovers and Aldershot Town and am looking forward to working with him and taking our club forward.
“He is vastly experienced as a player and a coach so brings a lot to the table. I think his experience will help our talented young players and thank the Board for backing me”.
