Alex Revell Announced as Stevenage Manager
Congratulations to Sports Careers Agency Client Alex Revell who has been named as the new Stevenage manager.
The League Two side have handed their former striker his first role in management and he has become their fourth manager of the season.
Revell, who is 36 years old, retired from playing at the end of the last campaign and has since managed Boro's Under-18's before joining their coaching staff in January.
The former Stevenage forward will take charge of first-team affairs for the remaining 12 games of the season, having previously been part of the coaching set-up. Mark Sampson will continue as first-team coach, with Ronnie Henry also assisting.
And Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace feels the time is right to try something new.
"We are uncomfortable making yet another change as Graham has worked tirelessly for the club since the day he arrived, setting up procedures and bringing some good quality new faces in, but with six straight defeats and one win in 13 league games, we are running out of time and we have to try something new," said Wallace.
"Alex knows the squad, knows the players' strengths and weaknesses and we are hoping his energy, dedication and enthusiasm will rub off on the lads and bring us the wins we need to survive.
"It's a reversal of the management team we had in place before Graham came, but Revs has done brilliantly and deserves his chance."
