It's been a busy summer for Sport Careers with a number of our clients making big career moves.
Craig Harrison will being the new season with National League side Hartlepool United after ending a record-breaking, trophy-laden spell in Wales with The New Saints to take over at Victoria Park.
Harrison won six consecutive Welsh Premier League titles with TNS, and will hope that his success can rub off on his new club as they target an immediate return to League Two following last year's relegation.
As Harrison exits the Welsh Premier League, fellow SC client Kevin Nicholson will lead the Saints' rivals Bangor City in their domestic and Europa League campaigns.
Highly-rated former Cardiff City coach Nicholson will look to improve on Bangor's fourth place finish from last season in what is his first managerial job.
Another client on the move is James Beattie, the former England striker who has left his role at Leeds United for the position of first team coach at Championship rivals Middlesbrough.
Beattie will again team up with manager Garry Monk, who he previously worked with at Elland Road and Swansea City.
In Scotland, former Falkirk and Hearts defender Darren Barr has landed his first coaching role as head of development squad at Greenock Morton.
The 32 year-old former Scotland international has also registered as a player with the Championship outfit.
Further afield, Juanjo Barroca has landed a new role with Chinese Super League outfit Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng.
Spaniard Barroca, who made his name with La Liga side Sevilla, is the new first team doctor at the Guiyang-based team.
