Former Aston Villa player and coach Colin Calderwood has taken up a job on the coaching staff at League One Blackpool.
Scot Calderwood, 55, spent the 1999-2000 season at Villa Park as a player before he returned to the club to work under manager Steve Bruce in November 2016 following Bruce’s appointment.
He remained at the club until Bruce’s departure, when he also left alongside Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence, and was offered the Cambridge United job in late 2018.
He’d been out of work since January of this year, when he was sacked by the U’s, but has now returned to work with the League One Seasiders.
He’ll work alongside manager Neil Critchley.
“I’m absolutely delighted to join Blackpool,” he said. “I’ve seen a lot of the division now because I’ve been scouting for a team in League One.
“I’m looking forward to working with Neil and the rest of the staff. I’ll be there to aid and assist in the best way possible and use my good experiences of football to help everybody within the club.”
Calderwood, who won 36 Scotland caps in his playing days, also has links to Hibernian, Swindon, Tottenham Hotspur, Nottingham Forest and Northampton Town from various playing and coaching days.
