News broke this afternoon that Fulham Football Club have appointed a new goalkeeping coach.

The coach in question is the former England keeper Tim Flowers.

Flowers has joined the Fulham coaching staff until the end of the season.

Now forty-nine years of age, Flowers had a distinguished playing career with Southampton and Blackburn.

Whilst at Blackburn he was part of the side that won the Premier League title.

After hanging up his gloves, Flowers has been working as a goalkeeping coach with Leicester and Manchester City and has also been the assistant manager at Coventry, Queens Park Rangers and Hull City.

In more recent times Flowers has managed the non-league team Stafford Rangers and has also coached at Northampton Town and Nottingham Forest.

An opportunity to become the full-time manager at Kidderminster Harriers, after taking temporary charge of first team affairs, was rejected and two weeks later Flowers was without a job.

Here at Vital Fulham we`d like to take this opportunity to welcome Tim Flowers to Craven Cottage and we hope he enjoys his stay with us.
