New scheme announced to increase the number of BAME coaches

The Premier League, English Football League and Professional Footballers' Association have announced a new scheme to increase the number of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) coaches.

The aim is to help black and other minority players move into full-time coaching roles in the professional game.

The scheme will start next season and will give six coaches a 23-month work placement at EFL clubs per campaign.

Former Jamaican international and current manager of Doncaster Rovers in League One, Darren Moore has welcomed the decision and hopes this will help to open up more opportunities for minority ethnic groups in football in England.
