Patterson Returns To Former Role

Bristol Rovers have announced that Darren Patterson will return to his former role as U18’s Youth Coach after Jerry Gill left the Club.

A Club statement said the move came after “a thorough review of the management and coaching structure at the Club” following the arrival of new boss Dave Penney and first-team coach Martin Foyle.

It added: “This decision is no reflection on his (Gills) coaching ability or his dedication to the job.”

Gill, 40, had spells with Birmingham, Yeovil, Northampton, Cheltenham and Forest Green as a player and took over as Youth Coach at Rovers when Patterson was appointed as former boss Paul Trollope’s assistant last summer.

This season he steered the Under-18 side to the third round of the FA Youth Cup, where they were edged out by an own goal against Aston Villa, and two of the Club’s scholars – Lamar Powell and Darren Jefferies – have signed professional contracts.

Edward Ware, the director responsible for the Youth department, said:

“We would like to thank Jerry for all the work he has done for us during his time at the Club. Jerry is a talented coach who we believe will have a bright future in the game. We wish him every success in the future.”
