Ex-Oldham star Barrett joining Stoke coaching staff

Former England defender Earl Barrett is joining the Academy staff at Stoke City.

The Sentinel says new Stoke academy chief Steve Holland has begun a shake-up behind the scenes by appointing former England defender Barrett and one-time Crewe and Port Vale defender Richard Walker to his part-time coaching staff.

Former Stoke favourite and ex-youth team coach Ian Cranson has left his part-time coaching position at Stoke, while former Vale winger Kevin Kent has also been released after a couple of seasons coaching youngsters in the academy.
