Coppin joins Matlock as player/coach

Matlock Town have signed striker Kayde Coppin from Mossley, and he will double up as an assistant coach.

Coppin, 31, is reunited with Gladiators boss Paul Phillips, who he has worked with at Ashton United and Buxton.

Phillips said: “He sets the standard on the pitch, in the dressing room beforehand and at training nights, he can play in a variety of positions which is useful, he knows what I expect.

“Really I can’t speak highly enough of him and we’ve always done well when he’s been with me before, especially at Ashton when we made it to the play-offs against teams spending a lot more money than we did.”

A former Bolton Wanderers junior, Coppin has also played for Flixton, Trafford, Northwich Victoria, Rossendale United, Atherton LR, Bacup Borough and Glossop North End.
