“Willy Caballero has been training with us for the past four weeks,” said First Team Goalkeeping Coach Ashley Bayes. “It’s been a good experience for everyone.

“To cut a long story short, basically my friend is the Assistant Goalkeeping Coach at Chelsea and Willy is without a club at the moment. To stay fit, he asked if we could have him in.


“He’s been brilliant around the group, great personality and character and what an experience to coach him and for our younger lads to learn from him! It’s fantastic.

“He loves it! If you see him training every day, he loves throwing himself around, he loves getting involved – he’s a great guy and it’s good to have him in.

“I’m learning off him as well. He’s showed us some good stuff – what he’s learnt at Chelsea and Manchester City. It’s great for the young ones, I mean what an experience for them!”
