Honour Takes Role On Coaching Staff

13 October 2014

Brian Honour has been drafted in to the Pools coaching staff to assist Sam Collins and Stephen Pears.

The Pools legend offered his services to the Club on a short-term basis to assist with coaching and offer his experience during a critical time for the team following the departure of Colin Cooper.

Honour became a massive hit with Pools supporters during a lengthy stint as a player during which he made 384 appearances and scored 36 goals between 1985 and 1994.

His whole-hearted approach and habit for scoring spectacular goals won him the hearts of the Pools faithful and he was voted Player of the Year on three separate occasions, including in the 1990/91 promotion season.

Honour spent a time on the coaching staff in 1995 following his retirement from playing and also served as joint caretaker manager alongside Paul Baker in 1999.

“Brian knows the Club inside out and has vast experience so I am delighted he’s going to come in and work with us,” explained Sam Collins.

“He knows exactly what the fans want to see out on the pitch and I think his approach to the game is very similar to mine so I think it’s great to have him on board.

“After our brilliant win on Saturday we want to keep on building the momentum and I’m sure having Brian’s coaching knowledge and bubbly personality around the place will help us do that.”

Honour will join Collins and Pears in the Pools dugout for Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two game against Luton Town at Victoria Park.
