Sunderland boss Jack Ross has added to his backroom staff by appointing John Potter as first-team coach.

Potter, 38, played alongside Ross at St Mirren between 2008 and 2010 and will leave a coaching post at Dunfermline to move to the Stadium of Light.

“John has terrific attributes as a coach,” Ross told the club website.[1]

“His personality and work ethic, allied to his past experience, will be of huge benefit in helping players make the transition from academy to first team.”
