Southampton's New Under 21 Coach Named

Southampton's New Under 21 Coach Named

Martin Hunter has today been appointed as the new Under 21 coach. He will work from Staplewood.

This is another cog in the wheels that Nicola Cortese is lining up to aid the club's revival.

Martin is man with a wealth of experience and more importantly perhaps, at all levels of the game. He is recognised both nationally and internationally as an expert at his job.

He is fully recognised as a coaching and football management expert who has the experience of working with and helping to develop some leading coaches and managers in England.

The holder of a UEFA Pro Licence qualification, Martin has been working mostly in recent times with the FA. There he has helped instruct managers as they develop a greater understanding of the game.

Previously he has worked with the likes of the England Team's youth players. Helping instruct players such as Steven Gerard, Jermain Defoe and Jermain Jenas as they developed.

More recently he has been helpful in gathering weekly reports for the England Under 21 players. He also helped in providing the scouting for the National side as we prepared for the recent World Cup.

Martin will be reporting to Les Reed the head of the Football Development and Support Centre. He will be heading up the full time coaches in the Academy and is responsible for the coaching of the club's elite Under 21 squad.

This squad replaces the reserve set-up and will bridge the gap between the academy and the first team squad.

Again this looks like another excellent move from the club as we continue to move forward.

The one sad thing about this is that Stewart Henderson has now left the club. Stewart has been a good friend of the club for a while now and I would like to wish him good luck for the future.

Well if this new chap is better than Stewart I guess we should say welcome. The intentions are good so hopefully we will be able to see the desired results in the coming years.

Hope he liked what he saw at Havant last night because that is what he has to work with his season.
