Stevenage have swapped one former Chelsea star as their goalkeeping coach for another.

Last season ex-Blue Dave Beasant was charged with training the Boro shot-stoppers before departing the club over the summer.

New Stevenage boss Teddy Sheringham has today (Thursday) confirmed that former Russian international Dmitri Kharine, who turned out for the Stamford Bridge club more than 100 times during the 1990s, has taken on the goalkeeper coach role at The Lamex Stadium.
