City on Wilcox:
Jason Wilcox took over as under-18 manager in July 2013.
The former England international brings a wealth of playing and coaching experience to the role, and has already been a key part of the City Academy set up as coach of the impressive under-13 side which swept all before them in the 2012/13 campaign.
After spending time in City’s youth system himself as a teenager, Jason made the switch to Blackburn where he featured in an FA Youth Cup final, before making over 300 appearances for the senior team and tasting title success in 1995.
Wilcox also turned out for Leeds, Leicester and Blackpool before retiring as a player in 2006.
Now embracing the coaching side of the game, Jason aims to bring his knowledge and experience to an under-18 side striving for league and cup glory.
