FA YOUTH CUP: UNDER-18s IN FOCUS

16 December 2014

Ahead of the Canaries' FA Youth Cup trip to Doncaster Rovers on Thursday (7pm), read up on City's team


CANARIES MANAGER - JERRY GILL


 
Former Birmingham City and Cheltenham Town defender Jerry Gill first joined the Club in 2012 as part of Ewan Chester’s scouting team, taking responsibility for the Midlands region.


In the summer of 2013 he replaced Gary Holt as the Academy’s Professional Development Coach when the retired Scottish international left to take up the management position with Falkirk.
He assumed the role of Professional Development Phase Lead Coach in July 2014, taking over responsibility of the Club’s U18s team from Adams.

Following the promotion of Neil Adams to interim manager in April 2014, Gill took temporary ownership of the U21s side for the remainder of that season.
