Brett Ormerod says he was delighted to be offered a role as part of new Bamber Bridge manager Jamie Milligan’s backroom staff.
The Brig boss announced prior to last Saturday’s win at Whitby Town that the former Preston and Blackpool striker, who also ended his career at Irongate, has joined the coaching staff on a part-time basis.
Speaking about how the offer came about, Ormerod said: “Milly got the job and he and John Hills asked me to come and help out and take a few training sessions every now and again.
“I’ve known them both a long time and they’re both great lads.
“I played with them both as players, John with two spells at Blackpool, and Jamie obviously at Brig as well as Blackpool.”
