Gould joins son at Hawke's Bay United

Former Wales and Wimbledon coach Bobby Gould will assist son Jonathan this season at New Zealand outfit Hawke's Bay United.

Gould jnr, the former Celtic goalkeeper, linked up with the Napier-based outfit last year but endured a nightmare campaign in the New Zealand Football Championship, picking up just one victory all season.

And now his father, who led Wimbledon to FA Cup glory in 1988, is joining the coaching staff, with his focus fixed firmly on success.

'At my age, I have to come to enjoy it, but I'm here to win. I haven't come all this way to get my backside kicked,' the 60-year-old told Hawke's Bay Today.

'We'd love to win the league and love to be up there at the end of the season, pressing the big boys.

'If we can, so be it. But if we can't aim for the moon, then you aim for the nearest star, and that's the play-offs.

'Last season, I wasn't well. I had deep-vein thrombosis, a life-threatening ailment, after only going into hospital with an infection in my spine.

'So I wasn't fully mobile and I couldn't really do anything while I was out here. But it whet my appetite, and then Jonathan asked if I wanted to come and work here.

'For a son to say that to a dad, I was proud and honoured.

'From that day, I have never ventured anywhere near an English soccer club.'
