Josh Lillis has put pen to paper on a new one year deal to continue his role as player/goalkeeping coach.
Lillis initially joined the Bluebirds in the summer of 2020 as David Dunn’s Player/Goalkeeper Coach following his release from Rochdale.
The experienced shot-stopper holds Dale’s appearance record for a goalkeeper and also boasts their clean sheet record after playing over 350 games during a successful eight-year spell at Spotland.
Lillis, the son of former keeper Mark, came through the ranks at Scunthorpe united and went on to make his senior debut for The Iron in a game at Millwall in December 2006.
He built up First Team experience with loan spells at Notts County, Grimsby Town and two temporary switches to Rochdale before making a permanent Dale move in 2012.
Lillis was released by Rochdale in 2020 and was drafted in as Player Goalkeeper Coach with The Bluebirds, signing a new two-year deal to stay at the Club in the summer of 2021, before extending his stay again earlier today.
