Tranmere Rovers appoints Nigel Adkins as Technical Director

Tranmere Rovers Football Club has announced the appointment of Nigel Adkins in a Technical Director role.

Having retired from playing, the ex-Tranmere player possesses vast experience as a manager, spanning 30 years.

His impressive managerial career features several notable accomplishments, including guiding Scunthorpe from League 1 to the Championship and securing back-to-back promotions from League 1 to the Premier League with Southampton.

In the newly introduced Technical Director role, Nigel will oversee the key football processes within the Club (recruitment, development and management) as well as acting as a mentor and advisor to manager Ian Dawes.

Chairman Mark Palios said, “Appointing Nigel to this important role is the final piece in the jigsaw we have been assembling. As a former Tranmere player, a physiotherapist and a hugely experienced manager, Nigel is uniquely well placed to sit across the Club’s critical football processes. His wise counsel will doubtless be invaluable to Ian Dawes as he seeks to make his mark as an up-and-coming manager. With Nigel, Ian Dawes, Neil Danns, Andy Parkinson and the returning Andy Hodgen all playing integral roles within the team-behind-the-team, I think we have assembled an exciting group of professionals to give us a platform for success.”

Nigel Adkins said, “The opportunity to come back to Tranmere Rovers, my home-town club where it all started as an apprentice professional footballer, and to work with my former teammate Mark Palios was too big to turn down. There is a vision to improve and develop and I’m excited to be part of the process.”
