Stags appoint experienced coach as new assistant boss

21 May 2019

Mansfield Town Football Club are pleased to announce the appointment of experienced coach Lee Glover as the club’s assistant manager.

The 49-year-old’s appointment follows last week’s announcement of John Dempster becoming the Stags’ first team manager.

Lee has left his post as opposition analyst at Doncaster Rovers – who recently finished sixth in League One – to join John Dempster’s backroom staff.

Lee began his playing career at Nottingham Forest, spending seven years with the Reds, a spell that included loan moves to Leicester City, Barnsley and Luton Town.

A striker in his playing days, Lee’s most prolific spell came with Rotherham United, in which he scored 29 goals in 85 League games for the Millers between 1996 and 2000.

“I appreciate the football club backing me in this appointment because Lee was my number one target.”

Following spells as manager of Corby Town and Grantham Town, Lee later took the assistant manager’s position at Kings Lynn, who were promoted to the Conference North during his time with the club.

He later worked with the likes of Nigel Clough and Steve McClaren at Derby as senior professional development coach and was appointed as Grant McCann’s [now-Doncaster Rovers manager] assistant manager at Peterborough in 2016 and latterly at the Keepmoat Stadium as the club’s opposition analyst.

“Lee is a good character, a pro licence coach and he joins us from Doncaster where he has been key in their player recruitment,” said manager John Dempster.

“He also has a history in producing players who are now playing in the Premier League and Championship from when he was working with the under 23s at Derby with Steve McClaren.

“I appreciate the football club backing me in this appointment because Lee was my number one target.”
