We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Adam Temple as the Club’s First Team Assistant Manager.
Temple is set to start work immediately and will join our recently appointed team of First Team Manager, Peter Wild and Sporting Director, Iain Wood.
The Bluebirds have had to move quickly to secure the appointment of Temple, who has a wealth of experience having begun his coaching journey at the age of just 16 at Manchester United has most recently been working in the Academy at Premier League champions, Manchester City.
“I’m delighted to have Adam join our team,” commented boss Wild.
“He’s a highly sought-after young coach who brings outstanding experience of working in a world class football environment and is exactly the right person to help us deliver on our development plans.”
Temple undertook a coaching scholarship with United in 1999 and went on to spend the next 15 years with the Old Trafford outfit. His varying roles gave him a taste of coaching across the club’s community, education, disability and girls’ programmes, as well as responsibility for some of the younger age groups within their famed Academy.
The A Licence qualified coach was then handed the opportunity to broaden his experience with a move to Oldham Athletic where he was able to work with a number of age groups in The Latics’ Academy from Under-12s all the way through to Under-18s.
Having developed his trade and his reputation, Temple was then offered a role at Manchester City and has spent the past eight-and-a-half years working with youngsters in their Academy, whilst also taking on some extra one-on-one coaching with older players as they pushed for the First Team.
“Working with Pete on such a project as this one at Barrow was a compelling opportunity and presents an appropriate next challenge for me in my career,” Temple told us.
“I am ambitious to learn and progress in the EFL, so this is a great place to start, I am delighted to be here, and I can’t wait to get started.”
