Adam Murray appointed new Robins assistant manager

20 October 2023

Cheltenham Town are delighted to announce that Adam Murray has been appointed as the new first team assistant manager.

The 42-year-old becomes manager Darrell Clarke's new number two, following the departure of Kevin Russell earlier this month.

A midfielder in his playing days, Murray made over 500 career appearances for the likes of Derby County, Oxford United and Mansfield Town, manager Clarke's boyhood club.

He arrives now in Gloucestershire with a wealth of coaching experience, after turning his attentions to management back in 2014, when he became the caretaker manager at Field Mill. 

Murray was awarded the job permanently toward the end of that year, at the time becoming the youngest manager in the top four leagues of English football.

After his departure from the Stags, coaching spells with Boston United, Guiseley and Burton Albion followed before he joined fellow League One outfit Barnsley in 2018.

He worked as the U18s manager before stepping up to the first team, where he took caretaker charge on two occasions.

Murray then became a key part of Valerien Ismael's backroom team at Oakwell, before following him to both West Bromwich Albion and then Besiktas in the Turkish Super Lig.

Murray most recently managed AFC Fylde to the National League North title last term before departing Lancashire at the beginning of the month.

Adam will be on the touchline at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium for the first time tomorrow, for our League One clash with Cambridge United.

Welcome to Cheltenham, Adam!
