Ayr United assistant manager John Henry has moved to Blackburn Rovers with immediate effect to take up the position of first team coach.
Ian McCall said :” John is a great boy and someone I rate very highly, he was the first person I contacted when I got the job here to come and join me. He is going to be reunited with Owen Coyle and it is a great opportunity for him. I am gutted he is leaving us but its a well deserved chance for him and there’s no way we could stand in his way. John has been a huge part of helping turn the club around and getting it on the upward curve that we feel we are on now.”
John Henry said :”It’s an opportunity I just couldn’t turn down and Owen wants me to start straight away. I have loved my time at Ayr, the club has been fantastic to me and it was great to be part of the turn around in fortunes. I fully believe the club is going in the right direction, the gaffer has been fantastic and he has a great team around him. There is a really good group of players there just now and I think they can have a good season.”
Everyone at Ayr United thanks John for his efforts at the club and wishes him all the very best in his new role.
