Falling in Gloves Again

24 July 2016

LONG-TIME Argyle servant Rhys Wilmot is resuming his role as a goalkeeping coach for the first team.

Rhys, 54, a former player who made 147 appearances or the Greens between 1989-92, has worked with the Argyle academy for many years, as well as being seconded to first-team duties from time to time.

Following the departure of previous first-team goalkeeping coach James Bittner, Rhys will now again work with Luke McCormick, Vincent Dorel and any future shot-stopping additions to the first team on a part-time basis.

Wilmot's reprised role is welcomed by manager Derek Adams.

"He’ll come in two days a week and help the goalkeepers," said Derek.

"I think that it's important that goalkeepers have a specialised goalkeeping coach, and we have that now. It's an important role for him. 

"He's been here for a good number of years, at the academy and the first team, and he'll get the goalkeepers working very hard to be in tip-top condition."
