Andy Rhodes leaves Owls

18 June 2018

Sheffield Wednesday’s goalkeeper coach Andy Rhodes has departed Hillsborough to take up the assistant manager role at League Two side Oldham Athletic.

Rhodes will be number two to the newly-appointed Frankie Bunn – the duo played together in the Latics’ halcyon days of the early 1990s.

Rhodes joined the Owls as goalkeeper coach in January 2010 and went on to develop a raft of custodians through the years, including the impressive current crop of Keiren Westwood, Joe Wildsmith and Cameron Dawson.

The Doncaster product now returns to Boundary Park, where he represented Oldham for two years between the sticks, with the pinnacle a League Cup final Wembley appearance against Nottingham Forest in 1990.

He later returned to the Latics as goalkeeper coach before eventually switching to Hillsborough under the management of Alan Irvine.

Rhodes told “I leave Hillsborough with a heavy heart but this is a great career move and a completely different challenge.

“I have enjoyed some memorable times with Wednesday and worked with some fantastic people, each of whom I would like to offer my sincere thanks, on and off the pitch.

“I wish Wednesday all the very best in the future and hope they achieve the promotion back to the Premier League that they deserve.”
