“I’m also pleased that Steve Bould, Sal Bibbo and Darren Burgess will continue their work with us. As we go through this period of change, we need to retain some continuity and they have an important role to play.”

First team coaches Neil Banfield, Tony Colbert, Jens Lehmann, Gerry Peyton and Boro Primorac have all left the club.

Head of medical services, Colin Lewin, physiotherapists Andy Rolls and Ben Ashworth, osteopath Dr Philippe Boixel and long-serving travel manager Paul Johnson have also left the club.
