Cal State Stanislaus women's soccer head coach Gabriel Bolton recently introduced an addition to his staff as Callum Lester, a former professional in the U.K., joined the team as the goalkeeper coach.
Lester played for the Scunthorpe United of the Championship League. The goalkeeper/defender also played at the University of Lincoln.
"We are very fortunate to have Callum joining our staff. In a very short time he has already transformed many aspects of our program," Bolton said. "He has tremendous knowledge of technology and is able to integrate it with soccer very well."
Over the past several years, Lester has worked both as the Director of Coaching at East Valley FC in Oakdale and as a coach on the 24-7 UK Soccer Academy staff in Fremont. He has also served as the head coach at Waterford High School (2011-2012) and Oakdale Youth Soccer League's director of coaching (2011-12).
"In addition to being a talented goalkeeper coach he will also help us in many areas such as recruiting, sports psychology and technical skill development," added Bolton.
The Warriors begin pre-season practices on Aug. 17 and open their regular season on Sept. 5, against Simon Fraser at Warrior Stadium.
