Horsfield will continue his playing career as well as acting as number two to Adams, who guided Fulham to promotion from Division Three.
I am looking forward to it, it is something I have always wanted to do. From turning 30 I have always wanted to come into the coaching side and Micky Adams has given me the chance to keep on playing. I want to play most of the games and Micky is going to teach me the ropes.
Like the fighter he is, Horsfield has made a remarkable recovery from testicular cancer and came out of retirement to play for Lincoln City last season.
The problems I have encountered over the last 12 months are now behind me. Getting cancer was something I had to get over. I got it, wanted to beat it and I did. Now I am just glad that I’ve got another chance in football.
I am going to learn a lot with Micky Adams. He has given me a leash to work with the strikers and do some scouting as well, but first and foremost I have got to get my fitness and my match fitness.
We wish ‘the Horse’ all the best.
