There will be a familiar face when the Oxford United Academy head for Scotland this weekend as Scott Shearer has returned to the club to join the Academy set up.
Scott will assist Wayne Brown with U23 and U18 goalkeeping duties as he steps up to his first coaching role.
The former U’s stopper will join up with the Academy this week and will be in Scotland for the side’s pre-season tour of Scotland, which concludes with a match against Motherwell academy on Tuesday.
Scott told us:
“It’s good to be back, I’m really looking forward to the challenge ahead. I know the standards the club has got and these are exciting times. Things are getting in place and hopefully the club can kick on once again. When you’ve got good people around you in the club it makes a big difference and working with Browny will be great for me in developing my coaching career.”
