Forest Green Rovers appoint Rob Davies As Manager

Forest Green Rovers have appointed former Aston Villa and Blackpool midfielder Robert Edwards as their new manager. After making his Premier League debut in 2004‚ Edwards moved on to Wolverhampton Wanderers. He subsequently spent four years at Championship level‚ helping to promote Blackpool and Norwich. He also played regularly for Barnsley before retiring from the game in 2013. In May 2021‚ Edwards was appointed as Forest Green Rovers manager‚ and the Club will be promoted to the Premier League for the 2021-22 season.

Rob Edwards is Watford's eighth permanent manager since the start of 2018

The latest appointment by the Hornets is Forest Green Rovers manager Rob Edwards. He led the League Two Club to promotion last season and has previously been the manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Telford United on a part-time basis. After leaving the Football Association‚ Edwards will be the eighth permanent manager since the start of 2018. The Club were on the lookout for a new manager and decided to take a young homegrown candidate. In Edwards‚ the new manager will have a background in football‚ having played for Wolves for fourteen years. He also managed the Wolves under-23 team and Wolves' youth set-up‚ as well as non-league Telford United. The two will work closely together to manage Watford. Edwards' appointment means that the relegation-bound Hornets will be in the Championship for the next three seasons. The new head coach will take over from Roy Hodgson at the end of this season. The Club had advanced discussions with Edwards before he resigned his position at Forest Green Rovers. However‚ the relegation result has sparked speculation that he would not stay at the club.

He is a former manager at Forest Green Rovers

In the aftermath of the Roy Hodgson sacking‚ Forest Green Rovers head coach Rob Edwards has been named as the new manager of Watford. The appointment is a surprise for many supporters of the Club as Edwards was recently appointed manager of League Two side Forest Green. Prior to his current role‚ Edwards was full-time manager of Telford United and Wolverhampton Wanderers. However‚ a dispute with the club's owners has clouded his appointment at Watford. During his tenure at the club‚ Robert Edwards was the Under-23 manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers. He will take up his new role on June 5 and be assisted by Richie Kyle. Edwards replaces Jimmy Ball‚ who took over as manager for the final eight games of the season but later expressed his interest in a full-time role. The club's chairman Dale Vince has been keen to recruit someone with a diverse background. Despite his relatively recent appointment‚ Edwards had a successful season at Forest Green‚ winning the league on the final day. Although his tenure at Forest Green is over‚ it is still possible that he will leave the Club in the summer. The former Forest Green manager is a strong candidate for the position at another Championship club. His former teammate‚ Ebou Adams‚ is out of contract this summer.

He played for Wolves and Blackpool

Rob Edwards‚ a former centre back‚ has coached several teams in his career. He has helped Blackpool and Norwich City win promotion to the Premier League. In addition to playing for the Championship club‚ Edwards also earned 15 Wales caps. After retiring from professional football‚ Edwards became the first team and U18s coach at Wolverhampton Wanderers‚ before being named caretaker manager for two games. In 2002‚ Rob Davies made his professional debut for Aston Villa. He later played for Blackpool and Wolves before a career-ending injury ended his playing days. However‚ the young defender moved into coaching roles‚ leading both the Under-18 and Under-23 sides. He briefly took charge of the first-team's affairs at the Club in 2016. After being named captain of Blackpool‚ Edwards signed a two-year deal with an option to extend the contract for a further year. Edwards made his debut for Blackpool on 9 August 2008‚ but the defender missed the rest of the season due to an ankle injury. Despite the injury‚ Edwards went on to score his only goal for Wolves against Bristol City. Edwards was also appointed captain for the side in a nervy 1-1 draw with Norwich City. Despite the tense atmosphere‚ Edwards has enjoyed a prolific season. Before this match‚ the striker had not scored in Wolves' previous three matches. However‚ against Cardiff‚ he scored his 15th goal of the season. While it is not the end of Edwards' career‚ it is a positive sign for the future of the Wolves' youth team. He may be back to Wolves‚ but he has a new Club to focus on.

He managed England's Under-16s

Rob Davies is a former head coach of the Young Lions and the head coach of the English national under-16 football team. He managed England's Under-16s and the Young Lions under-20s. He has a background in English football and has won many accolades for his Club and his country. He also has extensive international experience‚ and is a former captain of the English U-21 team. He has also been an assistant coach at Manchester United and Liverpool.

He was a former manager at Watford

The Watford hierarchy has decided on a new permanent manager. They have decided to hire Forest Green Rovers head coach Rob Edwards‚ who recently secured League Two glory. Despite the appointment‚ there has been a cloud of grievances surrounding the move. Edwards was also previously the manager of Wolves' under-18s. But that has all changed now‚ with the former Watford manager set to replace Roy Hodgson. The former midfielder‚ Rob Davies‚ had been with the Club since his 20th birthday. He later moved on to Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers. However‚ a serious injury cut short his playing career‚ and he transitioned into a coaching role at Wolves. He managed the club's Under-18s and Under-23s‚ and briefly oversaw first-team affairs in 2016. The appointment of Rob Edwards is a shock for the Hornets‚ who have suffered a relegation from the Premier League this season. Roy Hodgson's contract is up at the end of this season and the Club are looking for a new head coach to implement their ideas. The former Forest Green Rovers manager has experience in the English game‚ having led the Club to League Two success last season. The contract he signed at the Club was for three years‚ and included a clause allowing him to leave the Club at any time. If the new suitor wanted to buy Edwards' services‚ he would have to pay six months' salary. So‚ if a new manager came along who was more suitable‚ the new Club should give him a chance to prove himself. The deal would last until 2024.

He will be captain of Blackpool

When it comes to football‚ Rob Edwards is a natural captain. He is the most experienced player in the team and a respected figure among his teammates. He played under Kyle Edwards at Blackpool between 2016 and 2017. His arrival at the Club was accompanied by the release of a retained list. Edwards has stated that he hopes to keep four players on long-term deals. Among these players are Aaron Collins‚ Rob Edwards and David McGoldrick. In the Premier League‚ Edwards is no stranger to big Club roles. At the age of 14‚ he played for the FA School in Lilleshall. Now‚ he works with the England Under-16s and assists Lee Carsley. Clearly‚ he has achieved a lot in the past 25 years. And it looks as though he's going to continue to be captain of the Blackpool side‚ too. After a shock away win against Birmingham City‚ Pool are looking forward to a clash with promotion favourites Coventry City. Captain Rob Edwards has said that the team is feeling positive after the performance against Burnley. And the fact that the Blackpool squad contains old boys Claus Jorgensen and Ian Evatt could prove to be a big advantage in this match. As the season draws to a close‚ Pool can only get better‚ as they'll have a better option up front.
