Rovers have confirmed the appointment of Graham Younger as the club’s new talent identification manager.
Graham replaces Adam Henshall in the role, and will oversee the club’s recruitment strategy at all levels from the first-team down.
He said: “I’m delighted to be here and relishing the challenge ahead. We’ve got a busy summer ahead and with lots of hard work we want to bring plenty of quality to the club.
“I’ve spoken with the staff that are already here and the board in terms of the players we already have and how we can complement that.
“We’ve got a shortlist and have targets identified, once a manager is in place it really is all systems go.”
After graduating from the University of Central Lancashire, Graham has a wealth of experience following his work at several clubs in the EFL.
He added: “I’ve worked with Preston North End, Blackpool, Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers before moving to Cardiff City.
“I started off as an analyst at Cardiff before working my way up to the head of recruitment role, and was there when they won promotion to the Premier League.
“A combination of those experiences will help me when I’m trying to bring players here, modern day recruitment is very different to 10 or 15 years ago so it’s important to have experience in different areas.”
