New additions to Town's coaching staff

Paul Lambert will be joined at Town by Stuart Taylor, Jim Henry and Matt Gill.

Stuart began his playing career at St Mirren, with Paul also at the Scottish club at the time and he made more than 80 appearances for Saints.

He had four years at Airdrie, with further spells at a number of clubs north of the border before taking on a player-assistant manager role at Hamilton and helped the club into the Scottish Premiership.   

A coaching role in Qatar followed, then he took over as manager at Limerick. He first worked with Paul as U23 coach at Aston Villa, then became his assistant manager at Wolves and Stoke - a position he now holds at Portman Road.

Jim is Town’s new first-team fitness coach. A former Scotland judo international, he worked under Martin O’Neill at Celtic, Aston Villa and Sunderland.

Vastly experienced in football, he has Rangers and Hibs on his CV, as well as working with Paul at Stoke last season.

Matt Gill is joining Paul’s backroom team as first-team coach.

He progressed through the youth system at Peterborough and went on to make more than 150 appearances for the club. Another 200 games followed in his time at Notts County and Exeter before he joined Norwich in 2009 and played under Paul’s management at Carrow Road.

His playing career also took in Walsall, Bristol Rovers and Tranmere before he moved into coaching at Norwich, first with the Academy, then as U23 coach until leaving to join Town.
