Goater To Join Macclesfield As Academy Coach

February 6, 2019

Bermudian football legend Shaun Goater is set to join Macclesfield as an academy coach, according to reports from the British media.

The Daily Mail reported, “Former Manchester City striker Shaun Goater is set to start working with Macclesfield’s age-group sides on a part-time basis, Sportsmail understands.

“The 48-year-old Bermudian is the latest big name to join the Sky Bet League Two side’s coaching ranks after Sol Campbell was appointed as manager in October and former Manchester United player Andrew Cole joined as their forwards coach two weeks ago.

The BBC also reported the same, saying, “He is to start working with Macclesfield’s age-group sides on a part-time basis.

“In a career in which he scored 260 goals in 17 seasons, and also enjoyed successful spells with Rotherham United and Bristol City, Goater netted 103 goals in for City in his five-and-a-half years at the club between March 1998 and August 2003.

“After finishing his 17-year playing career in English football at Southend in 2006, he went home to found the Bermuda Hogges, a team that played in United States soccer’s fourth tier, as well as becoming a successful businessman.

“He then spent five years coaching the Bermudian club he started with, the North Village Rams, before he and his family returned to the United Kingdom in 2013.

“Since then Goater, who has a UEFA ‘A’ coaching licence, has had short stints as a forwards coach at Doncaster Rovers and St Johnstone, as well as brief spells with non-league clubs New Mills and Ilkeston.”
