Bryan and Lee promoted at the top of the Academy
The structure at the Academy is continually evolving to fall in line with the Category system - with Blues currently operating at Cat 2 but with the ambition to gain Cat 1 status at some stage in the future.
Bryan’s promotion to the new role will allow him more time on the training field, overseeing the progress of young players on the pitch as they come through the Academy system.
He will also be responsible for the development of the coaching staff at the Academy, both full-time and part-time and will continue to work at all levels up to U23.
Lee has worked as Bryan’s assistant for two years at the Academy after stepping up from Head of Sports Science and the two will continue to work closely together, with Lee’s responsibilities focusing on the ever increasing administrative workload that goes with running an Academy.
