Margetson Quits As Cardiff City Coach

Cardiff City FC are on the lookout for yet another new recruit to fill the now vacant goalkeeping coach position after previous incumbent Martyn Margetson resigned to take up a role with recently relegated West Ham.

Margetson was spared the axe by incoming manager Malky Mackay, despite assistant Terry Burton and coaches Paul Wilkinson and Alex Armstrong being given the boot. Margetson's decision to move on leaves just physio Sean Connelly as the only surviving backroom staff member although Neal Ardley (academy manager) and Scott Young do keep their development roles.

Welshman Margetson had a relatively brief speall as a player with the Bluebirds, and was named coach in 2002. He must take some share of the blame for Cardiff City's inability to adequately fill that position, or coach the persistent weaknesses in others. The vast majority of our recent goalkeepers have been very hesitant beneath the high ball, and the kicking on show has been shambolic at times.

Margetson will now help new manager Sam Allardyce at West Ham, hoping to prepare the likes of Robert Green and Marek Štěch for the visit of Cardiff City as the new season begins in just over a months time.
