Rovers are delighted to confirm the appointment of Lee Glover as first team coach.
The 53-year-old returns to the club having previously worked as opposition analyst during Grant McCann’s first tenure as manager.
In the intervening period, the former Nottingham Forest and Rotherham United striker has worked as assistant manager at Mansfield Town and Rushden and Diamonds before managing Kettering Town in the National League North last term.
Glover will combine his coaching with a role as opposition analyst for Rovers, working closely with new head of recruitment James Coppinger.
“I’m absolutely delighted,” Glover said. “When I got the phonecall off the gaffer, having been here before, it was a no-brainer for me.
“It’s a really good opportunity for me to work with Grant and Cliff again. I think the club suits what those two are all about and I think it could be a successful season.”
Manager McCann said: “Gloves was an integral part the last time I was at the football club. His knowledge, his understanding, his experience - he’s been there and done it as a player and he’s been around the coaching scene with me at Peterborough and Doncaster as well.
“He’s got a real good knowledge of opposition analysis, players and recruitment. We’re delighted to have him back.”
