Confirmation that key Burnley man has joined Manchester United
Craig Mawson, the goalkeeping coach at Clarets' Academy, joins Manchester United
Craig Mawson has left Turf Moor to join Manchester United in a senior goalkeeping coaching role.
Mawson leaves his position as head of goalkeeping coaching within the Clarets’ Academy to join United where he will work with the first-team keepers under senior goalkeeping coach Richard Hartis.
Mawson’s move to Old Trafford ends an association with Burnley that goes back to the mid-1990s when he first joined the club as a player.
“Burnley has been a big part of my life and I have built a real affinity with the club,” said the 40-year-old.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time there over all this time, and I am extremely grateful to Billy Mercer and all the Academy staff I have worked with. I can’t over-state what the club did for me.
“But to have this chance to work in a senior position at a club of Manchester United’s standing is a fantastic opportunity and one I’m delighted to take.”
Mawson became a trainee goalkeeper with the Clarets in 1996 before signing professional terms two years later.
He didn’t make a senior appearance for the Clarets but went on to enjoy a successful playing career with Morecambe, Halifax Town and Hereford United.
After re-joining Burnley on a part-time coaching basis in 2006, he joined the youth staff in a permanent role in 2010.
