Morecambe FC’s fitness coach has joined Bolton Wanderers.
Danny Birdsall has ended a five-year association with the Shrimps by moving to the Championship side as a strength and conditioning coach.
Boss Jim Bentley said: “We are obviously very sorry to lose Danny because he has done an amazing job for us over the years.
“If you look at our records over the past couple of seasons you will see that we have had very few muscle injuries and that is testament to the work he has done.
“It is a dream move for him and he certainly goes with our best wishes and I am sure he will do a great job for Bolton.”
Bentley also said he was hoping to name a replacement shortly.
