Rob Kelly has confirmed to the Club that he does not wish to take up the vacant First Team Manager’s position at The Progression Solicitors Stadium.

The Bluebirds’ Assistant Manager took temporary charge of First Team affairs in February and oversaw a run of results which helped keep the Club in League Two.

Since the 2020/21 season ended, the Board has been in discussions with Rob around taking the job of First Team Manager on a permanent basis.

However, Rob has now informed the Club that he does not wish to be considered for the role and we are therefore welcoming applications from other interested parties.

“I would like to thank Rob for his contribution during the past season,” said Chairman, Paul Hornby.

“I also thank him for his honesty during our discussions and for providing a decision in a timely fashion, which now gives us the opportunity to move forward quickly with alternative plans.

“It’s another big summer for the Club and we won’t waste a second in bringing the right man in to take us forward and ensure we can enjoy a strong 2021/22 in the EFL.”
