Coach takes up lead role with Magpies' U23s

Chris Hogg has left Town to take up a role as U23 lead development coach at Newcastle United.

A former graduate of the Town Academy himself having joined the Club from York at 16, Hogg returned to Blues after a professional career that saw him play close on 200 games in Scotland for Hibernian and Inverness Caledonian Thistle before injury curtailed his playing days early.

He progressed through the Academy ranks at Town before sharing the U23 management role with Gerard Nash.

Hogg also had a taste of first-team duties, working alongside Gerard under caretaker boss Bryan Klug for the final games of the 2017/18 season.

“Chris has gained a lot of experience here working at all levels in the Academy and with the U23s,” Town’s general manager football operations, Lee O’Neill, told the Club website.

“He is well liked by the players and staff at the Club.  We are obviously sorry to see him go but understand that it’s an opportunity for him to develop his career.

“We may see him back at the Club one day in the future. Who knows in football but we wish him the best of luck.”
