Stevenage Football Club and First Team Manager Alex Revell have today agreed that change is needed, and a new management team will be appointed…
The 38-year-old, together with assistant Dean Wilkins, will stand down from tomorrow.
Alex Revell took the reins as a caretaker in February 2020 and was appointed as Manager in July 2020 when Boro were amid pandemic complications and uncertainty over league status. After a difficult start to his first season, the team performed well in the second half of the season and finished in 14th place. A new squad was assembled in the summer, but despite a bright start, league results have been disappointing with Boro currently in 21st position after gaining just seven points from the last twelve league games.
Chairman Phil Wallace said, “Revs gave everything for the Club and could not have worked harder. We expected a successful season and some performances early in the season were outstanding. However, that early promise has not been repeated in the league and we both agree it is time for a change. Our conversations have been dignified and highly professional. We both care for the Club and want the best for the Club.
“We now need to see who is out there to form a new management team, but for the moment we have to focus on Tuesday’s FA Cup First Round replay with MK Dons and decide how best to approach the game”.
