Outgoing Performance Coach Lee Taylor Thanks Club

21 August 2014

Outgoing Performance Coach Lee Taylor has thanked the club's staff on his last day at Meadow Lane.

Taylor is moving to work for Indian Super League team North East United, where he will team up with former New Zealand World Cup Manager Ricki Herbert.

He told the Official Site: "I'm sad to leave Notts, it's a personal decision, but it was one of the toughest of my career. It's like a second home here at Meadow Lane, especially with my little boy playing in the academy, I love this club.

"The whole club, the management, the board have been so supportive for me. I can't thank them enough.

"But I've been given a great opportunity. I'm going over to the Indian Super League for a new chapter with Ricky Herbert, the former New Zealand World Cup Manager, as his assistant and it's something I couldn't turn down.

"It will be great for my development and hopefully it will lead onto other projects.

"I've got some great memories here. When I write my book,  which I hope to do at some point, the Great Escape will be a massive chapter. Shaun (Derry) backed me and believed in me. We all worked together and we kept that side up.

"I will never forget the Oldham match. It was a very emotional day and it was a fantastic achievement by everyone here."

Taylor also backed the team to succeed this season after picking up a vital three points on Tuesday evening.

"I just want the group to stay focussed, stay disciplined and listen to the new coach. That's all I ask for them to do. I wish all the best to this club and I know they will do well this season.

"Mike Edwards is coming in and he's a legend at this club. He's fantastic, he's learning and he listens. He will learn a lot from the medical staff here and I'm sure he will have a fruitful time back here. Best of luck to him too.

"I put it on record that the sports medicine's team is one of, if not the best, in this country with our resources." 

The club would like to wish Lee all the very best in India and thank him for his time at Meadow Lane.
