New goalkeeping coach for Blues

Town can confirm that Jimmy Walker has joined the Club as first-team goalkeeping coach from Sunderland.

Jimmy began his coaching career with Peterborough in 2013 and had spells with Gillingham and Lincoln City before joining The Black Cats this summer to work alongside new boss Jack Ross.

As a player he made more than 500 appearances for Walsall, becoming their record appearance holder, while also turning out for West Ham United and Colchester United among other clubs.

It was with The U's that Jimmy played under Blues boss Paul Lambert - making 16 appearances in 2008/09.

Jimmy is the fourth addition to Paul's backroom staff along with Stuart Taylor, Jim Henry and Matt Gill.
