City appoint new goalkeeping coach

Bristol City are pleased to announce the appointment of Pat Mountain as the club’s new goalkeeping coach.

The 42-year-old arrives from Forest Green Rovers and brings a wealth of experience to BS3.

Speaking of his new role, Mountain said: “I’m delighted to join Bristol City, it’s a fantastic club and the opportunity to coach here was something that instantly appealed to me.

“I’ve spent much of my coaching career in the top two divisions of English football, I know how fantastic the Championship is to compete in, and I’m extremely excited about my future with Bristol City.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Forest Green Rovers, they are a great club and I would like to thank the chairman, manager and staff for the opportunity, but moving to Ashton Gate was something I wanted to do.

“I am looking forward to working with the coaching staff at Bristol City and helping to develop the goalkeepers further. The club has a reputation for bringing players through the Academy system and I look forward to furthering their development.

“I’ve been to Ashton Gate on a number of occasions with visiting clubs in recent years and I’ve witnessed the redevelopment of the stadium, I’ve seen it come to life. I’ve also seen the plans for the new training ground and when you put that alongside the redevelopment, you see how big a club it is and hopefully I can do my bit to take it forward.”

A former Wales Under-21 international, Mountain’s playing career saw him represent a host of clubs, including Cardiff City, Yeovil Town and Newport County - who he played over 200 games for.

Forced to retire through injury at the age of 27, he began his coaching career at Cardiff City’s Academy, before going on to have spells at Cheltenham Town and Hereford United.

Mountain then joined Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2008 where they were promoted to the Premier League and after nine years at Molineux, he joined Hull City, before moving to The New Lawn in January 2018.
