Gunners Go For A Burton

Arsenal have announced the appointment of experienced coach Terry Burton as the new manager of the Reserves. Burton`s official job title will be Reserves and Head Development Coach, as he will also take charge of the Arsenal U-19s side in their Nextgen European campaign. Burton replaces Neil Banfield, who was promoted to First Team coach this summer.

This will be Burton`s second spell at Arsenal, having worked with the Youth and Reserve teams in the 80s, overseeing a crop of talent that included Tony Adams, David Rocastle, Michael Thomas and Niall Quinn. Burton has also managed Watford, as well as working in coaching roles at Cardiff and West Brom before joining Sheffield Wednesday as Assistant Manager.

Speaking with the club's official website Arsène Wenger said: "We are delighted that Terry Burton is joining Arsenal. I have known Terry for many years and he is someone who is hugely respected and highly regarded in the game. Terry brings with him a wealth of coaching experience and he will be a great asset for us, working with our reserves and youth development players."

New Arsenal coach, Terry Burton said: "I`m delighted and proud to be joining Arsenal as reserves and head development coach. Having started my career at Arsenal as a youth player, and then as a coach, I know the history, class and values of this great football club. I can`t wait to get started in my new role and to meet the players and my new colleagues.'
