“I’m very excited to be a part of Newcastle Benfield. I took my first session on Tuesday night after agreeing terms with Tom on Monday. It’s a pleasure to be working with someone with such vast experience at senior level as Tom has. Personally I am always looking to develop myself as I believe this will in turn develop the players I work with. We have some top quality at the club both on the pitch and behind the scenes, with exciting times ahead for the club as a whole. I’m looking forward to a positive season both in the league and cup competitions”
