Trinidad and Tobago’s Dennis Lawrence will join Roberto Martinez's coaching staff at Everton.
Everton confirmed last week that Graeme Jones, Inaki Bergara, Kevin Reeves and Richard Evans had all followed Martinez from Wigan to Goodison Park.
Wigan were keen to keep hold of Lawrence with the former Trinidad & Tobago international establishing himself as a key member of the set-up at the DW Stadium.
New Wigan boss Owen Coyle was also keen to include Lawrence in his plans for the side and hoped to keep him in his coaching staff. But Lawrence will continue his relationship with Martinez.
Lawrence is highly-rated by Martinez and he sees the former Wrexham and Swansea defender as one of the most innovative coaches around.
TTFA President, Raymond Tim Kee, currently at the CONCACAF Gold Cup in the United States, commended Lawrence on his latest move.
“This is definitely another positive development in Dennis Lawrence's coaching career that can only bode well for young T&T footballers and coaches aspiring to perform on the highest level as he will undoubtedly be keen on sharing the knowledge and experience he is acquiring,” Tim Kee stated.(Mark Anthony Scott.July 8th, 2013))
