Former Burnley and Stoke coach Dave Kevan has joined Cheltenham as a first team coach.
The 45 year old former assistant to Steve Cotterill at both Burnley and Notts County, and he has most recently worked at Stoke City in their Academy set up, but left when Tony Pulis departed.
He joined the club for training for the first time last Thursday for his first sessions alongside Mark Yates and Neil Howarth and it's expected he will make a huge difference to our backroom staff because of the experience he brings with him.
Clearly following the Oxford performance, he'll be hoping he helped make a difference after only a few sessions and long may that continue.
Kevan did also have a playing career as a midfielder before entering coaching, starting life as a youth player with Notts County and making his debut for them back in February 1984. He made almost 100 appearances for County, also enjoying a loan spell at Cardiff, before switching permanently to Stoke when signed by Alan Ball. Under new manager Lou Macari he found favour as a defender and helped them win promotion in 1992-93 before moving onto Bournemouth when he finally hung up his boots.
He join as a coach with a fair amount of experience despite his age, as following retirement from playing he quickly moved onto Stoke's coaching staff and was made First Team coach in 2001. In 2002 he also served as their caretaker manager for a period.
Kevan isn't the only change in our backroom, as Ian Hutton has joined as the club's new fitness coach and the current manager of our ladies team. He has been helping out with conditioning for a number of season's, but has now been appointed to a more focused role.
Craig Cope is a University of Worcester student who has now taken control of video analysis at the club.
Former fitness coach and video analyst Jason Murphy has stepped down from those roles owing to other work commitments and the club thank him for all his efforts and hope to see him back visiting the stadium soon.
