Dyer working with U18s and hoping to pass on experiences to next generation

Kieron Dyer is relishing the chance to help the youngsters at the Academy follow in his footsteps and make it to the first-team.

The former Town and England midfielder  has now taken up a full-time position as assistant manager for the U18s, where he will work under Adem Atay.

“I’m enjoying being involved in the development of the young players here,” Kieron, who made more than 100 appearances for his hometown club before a £6m to Newcastle in 1999, told the Club website.

“I’ve worked with the U16s, where it is all about improving as a player more than worrying about results but at U18 level, there is still that element but you are looking at the competitive side as well.

“I’m here to help the boys. I’ve been where they are. I can relate to them and hopefully I can take what I have gained during my career and pass that on to the Academy players here.

“It’s a great opportunity for me to progress as a coach as well and I’m relishing the challenge.”

Meanwhile Adem is attempting to complete his first ever triathlon on Saturday in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital. You can sponsor him by going to:
