“Everyone, the kids, the senior guys can gain from having him around the place"

Paul Lambert has welcomed the prospect of Terry Butcher working in a coaching capacity at the Club.

The Town legend and former England skipper is taking up a role that will see him primarily work with the Academy players at Playford Road but Blues’ boss sees Terry having a benefit to first-team players as well.    

“It’s great for the Club, Terry coming in. Having all the legends around, Terry, George [Burley], Warky [John Wark], Matt Holland, that’s great,” Paul told the Club website.

“Everyone, the kids, the senior guys can gain from having Terry around the place with what he achieved in the game, not just at Ipswich but with England and throughout his career.

“He’ll be coaching across the Club but just having him around, having a cup of tea with him and talking to him about the game can be a benefit.”
