Ex-Blackburn winger Wilcox named Man City U18 coach

Jason Wilcox has been named new Manchester City U18 coach.

The former Blackburn, Leeds, Leicester and Blackpool winger has a wealth of footballing experience to draw on and has already been a key part of the City academy set up as coach of the under 13 side that swept all before them in 2012/13.

"It's a fantastic opportunity for me and a great privilege," Wilcox told City's website. "Everyone is talking about Manchester City and to have this role now as we look to move forward into the new complex is fantastic. I'm looking forward to the season ahead.

"It's a really exciting for time for the boys and hopefully I can pass my experiences - good and bad - onto the players. Many years ago I was here as a 15 year old and now it's almost come full circle."
