Former Latics goalkeeper Paul Gerrard has been appointed as the club's permanent goalkeeping coach.

The 38-year-old arrived at Boundary Park last year on a part-time basis.

Gerrard has now left a similar role at League Two side Shrewsbury Town to focus on his coaching at the Latics on a full-time basis.

He Gerrard told the club website:external-link "It will be nice to concentrate on one set of keepers."

Gerrard, who spent eight years at Everton and played for the Latics during their time in the Premier League, added: "It was strange being at two clubs - though it worked out well last season.

"It is also great to be working locally as it was a 200-mile round trip to Shrewsbury. I am looking forward to being with the Latics full-time."
