Anthony returns to The Gas as Head of Academy Coaching

Having worn the Bristol Rovers shirt 163 times as a player, The Pirates revealed that the 37-year-old had returned to the club as the academy’s Head of Coaching.

Anthony left his position at Swansea City in October to take on his new role at The Gas, taking over from Adrian Harvie who departed for personal reasons earlier this year.

Bristol Rovers fans will know the former defender well, after he enjoyed six years (2006-2012) at the Memorial Stadium. He made his debut for The Gas on 12th August 2006 in a 1-0 win over Grimsby Town, and he will now be hoping to help the club’s youngsters make the step up into the first-team. 

Academy Manager, Chris Hargreaves, was delighted to welcome Anthony back to the club: “I am delighted to announce that Byron Anthony will be joining the team as our new Academy Head of Coaching,” he told the club website.

He added: “Byron has obviously worked with us recently, and as well as being a former player at the club he brings to the role a wealth of experience.

We have already discussed several ideas to enhance what we are currently doing very well within the Academy. We really want to develop our staff and players to be as competitive and successful as possible.”
