Livingston FC is pleased to confirm the appointment of Gary Maley as first-team goalkeeping coach.
The 39-year old who just retired from the playing side of the game after the final match of the 21-22 season will now join the coaching staff for the new campaign.
‘Stretch” has also been working alongside our Academy over recent months, helping the next generation of goalkeepers at the club as well as working through his coaching certificates.
Manager David Martindale said: “Stretch has been at the club for around 6 years now and going into his 7th season and worked with me previously before I brought him into to Livingston FC.
“Over the years he has taken the reserve team and helped out with the first-team on the odd occasion from a coaching point of view, he has also been the head of academy goalkeeping since in was re introduced this year.
“He has had some fantastic coaching from Tony Caig previously & more recently Stuart Garden. He has worked with some top keepers over the years at Livingston too – Neil Alexander, Liam Kelly, Robbie McCrorie to name a few and more recently our own, current goalkeepers.
“He has been through the SFA coaching system and is waiting on his final assessment for his UEFA GK B license.
“He knows the club and knows myself very well and I’m delighted that I have managed to bring him onboard to the coaching staff at the club. He will still work with the academy and reserve team during the evenings as well as working as the first-team goalkeeping coach.
“It’s a great signing for us at the club and I’m delighted to keep him involved with the first-team at Livingston FC.”
