Neil Redfearn’s short-term role at Newcastle United working with the Under-23 side has come to an end.
Redfearn joined the club to help Under-23s coach Ben Dawson following his decision to quit as manager of Liverpool Women but, just three weeks later, he has moved on.
The former Leeds boss was only employed on a short-term basis and reports say the 53-year-old is now considering a more permanent job offer elsewhere.
Redfearn appeared to make a positive impact with the Newcastle youngsters as the Under-23s have won their last four league and cup games, including a 2-0 Checkatrade Trophy win over League Two side Notts County and, most recently, a 5-2 win over Aston Villa on Monday.
Dawson paid tribute to the work Redfearn has done even though he was only involved for a brief period.
He was quoted in the Shields Gazette: “It’s been great having him in as a sounding board, but also to be able to speak the lads on the training pitch short space of time that he’s been in.”
