Clemence to stay with England set-up
Steve McClaren has confirmed Ray Clemence will continue as England's goalkeeping coach but Peter Taylor's long-term future as under-21 coach remains in unresolved.
Clemence, in the role since 1996, has been asked to continue under England boss McClaren, who started his new job yesterday.
Crystal Palace manager Taylor met McClaren today for a general discussion about the forthcoming fixtures and the best way for the senior and under-21 teams to work together.
Taylor will definitely be in charge for the next game - a European Championships qualifier against Moldova at Ipswich on August 15.
McClaren said: ``It was really good to sit down with Peter and talk through how the senior and under-21s teams run alongside each other.
``He has a wealth of experience at that level and we had a very useful meeting.
``The under-21s are an extremely valuable way of giving young players top level international experience.
``They have also provided a springboard for the bulk of the current senior squad.
``I'll be keeping a very close eye on the different youth teams, particularly the under-21s, and monitoring how various players perform.''
McClaren is expected to confirm his complete backroom team next week.
