Hornets appoint Goulding
Date published: 22 September 2007
Rochdale Hornets have appointed the former Great Britain international Bobbie Goulding as coach for the second time.
Goulding takes charge of a side that will play in National League Two next year following the mid-season departure of Darren Abram.
The 35-year-old, who won 17 caps for Great Britain and every major domestic honour in the game during a glittering career, had two successful seasons in charge of the Spotland club in 2004 and 2005.
Just four players attended his first training session in late 2003, but he steered the club away from relegation and the following season made the NL1 play-offs.
Rochdale Hornets director Karen Reynolds is delighted to have Goulding back on board.
“Bobbie will bring enthusiasm, charisma and passion for Rochdale Hornets,” Ms Reynolds said.
“The thing that he spoke about throughout our talks was having an unfinished job.
“He has a lot of affection for Rochdale Hornets and has come back here to finish the task.”
