Turner takes role with Bolton

Bolton boss Dougie Freedman has been reunited with Lee Turner

after installing him as the club’s new goalkeeping coach.

The 47-year-old is the latest member of coaching staff to move

to the Reebok Stadium from Crystal Palace following Freedman’s

appointment as Trotters manager at the end of October.

Curtis Fleming and Lennie Lawrence already lead Freedman’s

coaching set-up at Wanderers having worked under him at Selhurst


Turner’s playing career saw him turn out for Ebbsfleet and

Margate before moving into coaching with Southend, where Freedman

concluded his days as a professional between 2008 and 2010.

It is the second time Freedman has appointed Turner, after

bringing him to Palace shortly after receiving the manager’s job on

a permanent basis in January 2011.
