July 14, 2008

Nigel Winterburn is to join Paul Ince's backroom team at Blackburn to work as defensive coach.

The former Arsenal full-back Nigel will travel with the team to their pre-season training camp in Germany on Wednesday.

Rovers chairman John Williams said: 'Pulling together a new backroom team with the right balance of skills, experience and ideas across sports science, recruitment and coaching is clearly important and we are nearly there now.'
