Last week, non-league club Kidderminster Harriers announced that coach Tim Flowers was leaving the club and it can now be confirmed via the Nottingham Post that he will take up a coaching role at Nottingham Forest.
Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Pearce is rebuilding his backroom staff and he wants former England team mate Tim Flowers to be a part of his setup.
At the moment it is unclear whether Flowers will take up a general coaching role at Forest, or if he will solely be employed to work with the clubs goalkeepers.
Flowers had a long playing career which saw him represent Wolves, Southampton, Blackburn (where he won the Premier League title) and Leicester, as well as playing for England.
After retirement, Flowers moved into coaching. He was assistant manager to Iain Dowie at three different clubs-Coventry City, QPR and Hull.
He even tried his hand at management, however his brief spell in charge of Stafford Rangers was unsuccessful and he only lasted a few months. His next role was as coach and caretaker manager at Northampton before finally moving to Kidderminster.
Upon his departure from the Harriers, Flowers said he was sad to be leaving. “To be able to coach and train with the lads every day was great for me and I thoroughly enjoyed that,” Flowers said.
“Under any circumstances I would have liked that to have continued, Kidderminster is a tremendous club. I’d love nothing more than for them to get back into the Football League where they belong.”
Stuart Pearce’s backroom staff at Forest is now taking shape. He has already acquired the services of Steve Wigley and Brian Eastick is also expected to join shortly.
