Portadown FC can confirm that former Ports defender Andy Hunter has joined the clubs coaching staff.
Matthew Tipton said “After the news that Chris Wright has left us its my great pleasure to announce that Andy Hunter is joining the back room team. Andy is someone I’ve known for many years and I fully trust him as a person firstly which is massively important to me. Andy also has tremendous football knowledge and is a very good coach who, as he was as a player, is driven by success. Both David & myself worked as part of Andy’s backroom team with the County Antrim Milk Cup squad which won the competition 3 years ago. During that period I said that if I got a job as manager I would definitely want Andy working with me, and I’ve finally managed to get him in which has delighted me no end. I’m sure Andy’s presence on the training pitch and touchline will help us improve even further in our target of reaching where we want to get to.”
