Flynn And Jones Take Charge

7 January 2013

Current and former captains take charge of first team duties as Rovers search for Dean Saunders replacement.

Rovers are pleased to announce that, following Dean Saunders’ departure to Wolves, former Rovers captain and Wales U21 manager Brian Flynn, and club captain Rob Jones, will take charge of the team for an interim period whilst the club searches for a new manager. 

The pair will take charge of training at Cantley Park from tomorrow, Tuesday, and will lead the team at Stevenage on Saturday. 

The Rovers Board and players are pleased that Brian and Rob have stepped in to continue training as normal, and could not have asked for two better people to help continue the push for promotion this season. 

Former Rovers captain Flynn boasts a wealth of managerial experience, having managed at both international and club level. 

The Wales U21 team enjoyed some of its finest moments under the stewardship of Flynn, which led to him being appointed caretaker manager of the Wales first team after the departure of John Toshack.   

Club captain Rob Jones has captained every side he has played for, and is the ideal person to continue the success the club has had so far this season through his leadership on the pitch. 

Rovers will now start the process of finding the right manager to replace Dean and continue the push for promotion. 

The club will be looking at all applications and then will form a shortlist for interview within the next two weeks.
