Mawson joins coaching staff

Monday 30 December 2019 16:18

Craig Mawson has been appointed Manchester United’s new assistant first-team goalkeeping coach.

Mawson has joined from Burnley where he was a coach since September 2010. A former Clarets scholar, he was named FA Goalkeeping Coach of the Year in 2015 and the 40-year-old is now relishing his new challenge at Old Trafford.

“It is such an honour to join Manchester United and to work with the fantastic set-up already in place,” said Craig. “Burnley Football Club has been a huge part of my life and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time there, both as a player and as a coach. I would like to thank them for everything they have done for me and for the perfect grounding they have provided me with, but this was an opportunity that I couldn’t let pass. 

“I am looking forward to working with Richard Hartis, the coaches, staff and players. This is an exciting time for the club and I am delighted to be part of that.”
