Coventry City appoint former Derby County coach Lee Glover as Senior Professional Development coach

12 October 2015

The 45-year old takes charge of the Under-21s group and joins City's backroom staff following a 'lengthy recruitment process'...

Coventry City Football Club have appointed Lee Glover as the club's new Senior Professional Development coach.

The 45-year old joins the Sky Blues from Burton Albion and will manage the club's Under-21s group who have enjoyed a fine start to the season, winning four out of eight games so far.


The former striker enjoyed an impressive playing career, starring for the likes of Nottingham Forest, Port Vale, Rotherham United and Macclesfield Town.

Glover moved into coaching after his playing career ended and worked under Nigel Clough and Steve McClaren at Derby County as Senior Professional Development Coach.

City boss Tony Mowbray said: "I'm delighted to welcome Lee to the club after a lengthy recruitment process which attracted a high calibre of applicants.

"We've been looking for the right person to manage the Under-21s so that the group will receive a good mix of skill-based training and first-team exposure.

"Lee is vastly experienced in the game and I'm sure the group will benefit from the coaching experience he has obtained working under Nigel Clough and Steve McClaren at Derby County.

"I'm happy with the backroom staff at the club and I'm sure the appointment will help bridge the gap between the first-team and the Academy even further."
