James Beet, who joined the club in March 2021, is taking on a new role at Preston North End with immediate effect.
Following a successful first year in the position as senior recruitment analyst and as part of James’ development, he will now take on a new strategic role as ‘player loans and pathways manager’.
The key elements to this role are to identify a clear pathway between the Academy and the first team.
These responsibilities include working closely with the Academy manager, first team coaches and first team manager Ryan Lowe to clearly map out a route for each player that everybody believes can make a successful transition to the first team.
In addition, James will consider and investigate appropriate clubs that offer the right level of football for each first team player that is required to go out on loan to get the required game time for their development.
Everyone at the club would like to wish James the very best in his new role.
