FORMER Southend United defender Adam Barrett has joined Millwall’s coaching staff.
Barrett retired from playing in February after making 13 appearances this season, the last in a 4-0 defeat to Stevenage in an EFL Trophy game in November.
Former centre-back Barrett made more than 700 club appearances in a career in which he also played for Crystal Palace, AFC Bournemouth and Gillingham. He scored in Southend’s 2-0 League One win at The Den last season (above).
Barrett joins as first-team development coach at Millwall, who announced earlier this week that U23 boss and member of Neil Harris’ backroom team Justin Skinner had left the club.
Thirty-seven-year-old Barrett set up his own academy over three years ago and is currently completing his Uefa A licence.
He was down to work this week at Millwall’s training ground ahead of the FA Cup quarter-final clash against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
