Moyes names Round, Woods and Lumsden as Man Utd backroom team

David Moyes has confirmed the make-up of his backroom team at Manchester United, according to BBC Sport, with the appointment of Steve Round as assistant manager, Jimmy Lumsden as first team coach and Chris Woods as goalkeeping coach.

The trio worked under Moyes at Everton but have left with the manager to take up the same roles at Old Trafford, following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. Ferguson’s staff, including assistant manager Mike Phelan, goalkeeping coach Eric Steele and first team coach Rene Mulensteen, left in the wake of Ferguson’s departure.

Round was Moyes’ second assistant at Everton, replacing Alan Irvine, who left to try his hand at management with Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday. Irvine later returned to Everton to work with the club’s academy. Round has previously worked with Steve McClaren for Middlesbrough and England and under Sam Allardyce at Newcastle.

Woods is a former England international who has also worked with the United States national team, where Everton custodian Tim Howard is a regular member of the squad. Woods played for the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Rangers during his career.

Lumsden is a former Celtic coach who worked with Moyes during Moyes’ early playing days. He was appointed as a coach at Preston by Moyes before following Moyes to Everton in 2002.
