Former player takes over for a second time...

Alex Revell named new Stevenage manager

2024/05/09 09:34

Stevenage have confirmed that Alex Revell has been made the permanent first team manager.

The former Boro player will be now overseeing his second stint as manager at the club. Revell initially took over as Stevenage boss following his retirement from the club in 2020 before the season was curtailed by COVID-19.

After finishing 14th place in League Two during his first full season in charge, Revell was sacked early into the 2021/22 campaign with the club hovering over the relegation zone.

Revell eventually returned to the club as a coach and with Steve Evans' departure to Rotherham United served as the interim manager.

Stevenage have now opted to make the 40-year-old the permanent first team manager for a second time.

“We’ve taken our time to consider various candidates, but we believe the dynamics of our squad dictated that Alex was the natural successor to Steve [Evans]," Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace said.

"Alex knows the players, he’s been part of the original recruitment metric and, importantly, he’s held in high esteem by the dressing room. However, we wanted to improve our chances of success on the pitch by providing an experienced coach/assistant manager with in-game expertise and years of experience winning games.

“In this regard, we’ve also appointed the Management Team that Alex has chosen with Neil Banfield joining as Assistant Manager/First Team coach and Scott Cuthbert taking over Alex’s former number three role”.

As a fan, I'm cautiously optimistic about this decision. Revell did well in his first stint as manager and it's good to see him back at the club. However, his performance in the 2021/22 campaign wasn't great. Hopefully, he can turn things around and lead us to a better season this time around.
