Former manager of Bury youth team appointed to academy role at Blackburn
28 October 2019
Following a string of academy promotions this summer, Blackburn have turned to outside the club to find their new assistant for the under-18s.
The new assistant, Ryan Kidd, has most recently been the manager of Bury's youth team.
Ryan Kidd has been appointed the new assistant coach for the under-18s at Blackburn Rovers.
Kidd's appointment follows a string of internal promotions at Blackburn this summer, which began when the head coach of the under-23s, Damian Johnson, was promoted to the role of first-team technical coach and head of player development in July.
This led the way for Billy Barr, the previous head coach of the under-18s, to take over from Johnson, with Barr's former assistant, Mike Sheron, then promoted to head of the under-18 squad.
