The son of former Burnley, Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers manager Owen Coyle has teamed up with his father's new club ahead of next season.

Following stints at a number of North West clubs between 2007 and 2013, Coyle, 55, spread his coaching wings and moved to Houston Dynamo in the MLS before enjoying time at Chennaiyin and Jamshedpur in India.

Now, the former Bolton Wanderers striker is back in British football after being appointed head coach of Scottish Championship side Queen's Park - and this time he has brought his son, of the same name, with him.

Coyle Jr has enjoyed success as a coach in his own right, managing the England National Amputee team, which he will continue to do until the culmination of the Amputee World Cup later this year.

Then, he will take up his new role as head coach of Young Queen's Park.

Coyle Jr said of his appointment: "I am returning home.

"I am delighted that to have joined Queen's Park Football Club as Head Coach of a new and exciting project working with ‘Young Queens Park’.

"The role will be varied in supporting the Academy players and staff, in addition to bridging the gap between Young QP and First Team but one I’m looking forward to.

"Thanks to everyone at the club for the opportunity to join the team. I am ready to add value and knowledge to a strong talent pool of players and staff.

"I will be continuing in my active role as Head Coach of The England Amputee National Team until post-World Cup 2022 and I'm grateful for the club's support in facilitating this.

"I have been involved in football, coaching and management for over ten years since completing my apprenticeship at Lancashire Football Association in 2012.

"I have worked within a number of different football disciplines and was appointed head coach for the England Amputee National Football team when I was 18 years old.

"I also had connections with a number of players who had played with the club so when the opportunity to join Queen’s Park, was presented to me, I was delighted to accept.

"I hope to bring a range of experience from outside to add to the club along with an openness to develop myself.

"This is a tremendous project that is exciting to be contributing to and I can’t wait to start.”
