Motherwell has appointed Jim Hollman as the club’s new goalkeeping coach.

Hollman started his coaching career with the Ipswich Town Academy in 1998 before taking on the senior goalkeeping coach job at Norwich City, at the age of just 21.

He was at Carrow Road for over seven years before a short stint with Cambridge United and in 2008 returned to Portman Road.

His three-year stay with Ipswich ended when Malky Mackay lured him to Cardiff City.

Hollman said: “I’m delighted to take on the role at Motherwell.

“I knew Ian Baraclough had a hugely successful time with Sligo and I also knew he had a very good reputation within football.

“It was a combination of a highly regarded manager, a great group of staff and a Scottish Premiership club with the history and reputation of Motherwell that meant I couldn’t turn it down.”

Hollman replaces Gordon Marshall who has taken up the role of goalkeeping coach at Aberdeen.
