Matthew Towns has been named as the new goalkeepers’ coach with Sliema Wanderers, the Premier League club announced in a statement.
The veteran England goalkeeper has been in Maltese football for several years and last season he was filling the same role with Tarxien Rainbows but his contract expired at the end of last campaign.
Towns fills the void left by Mark Vella who left the Wanderers at the end of the 2020-21 season.
The former SK Victoria Wanderers goalkeeper will also contribute in the club’s academy by coaching the young goalkeeping prospects at the club.
“We are very proud to announce that the veteran goalkeeper will be joining our Club as Goalkeeper’s Coach of our senior team for the upcoming season,” the club said in a statement.
“Apart from this, Matthew will also be coaching our young and upcoming goalkeepers forming part of our Minors squad and younger age groups.
“The Englishman boasts the UEFA A coaching licence and will surely bring with him loads of experience having both coached and played as a goalkeeper himself for many years, both in Malta and abroad.”
