Michael Skubala joins Lincoln City as head coach

Under-21s boss departs.

Leeds United can confirm Michael Skubala has joined Sky Bet League One side Lincoln City, as their new head coach.

Whilst everyone is disappointed to see a coach of Skubala’s quality leave the club, we are proud to see another member of staff progress from our academy at Thorp Arch, into an English Football League first team role.

Talented coaching duo Scott Gardner and Rob Etherington will now take up new positions at the club on an interim basis. Gardner will step up from Under-18s head coach to lead the Under-21s, with Etherington moving from Under-18s assistant coach to become Under-18s head coach.

Everyone at Leeds United would like to thank Michael for his effort and time spent developing players, and for taking over as interim head coach of the first team in difficult circumstances last season.

We now wish him every success at the LNER Stadium and for the future.
