FORMER Town goalkeeper Paul Crichton is to be the club’s goalkeeper coach.
The move comes after Steve Croudson departed to take up a coaching role at Hull City.
Crichton arrives at Blundell Park with a vast wealth of experience in goalkeeper coaching.
His experience comes from coaching roles at Gillingham, Yeovil, Cambridge United, Brighton, Norwich, Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town.
In 2009, he joined the coaching staff at Norwich City, replacing Tommy Wright, after Bryan Gunn was appointed as manager. He left the Carrow Road club in February 2010, moving to Sheffield United to coach there, though he was also registered as a player for emergencies for his first season.
In July 2012 took up the goalkeeper coaching job at Championship club Huddersfield Town.
As a Town player, he was signed by Alan Buckley on a free transfer in July 1993. He was an ever-present in his first season at Blundell Park, hardly missing a game for 3 years until September 1996, when he moved to West Bromwich Albion for £250,000, moving to the Hawthorns to play for Alan Buckley.
