New manager Russell Slade has now confirmed his backroom staff and appointed Scott Young, Martyn Margetson, James Rowberry and Kevin Nicholson on a permanent basis.
Young, having joined Danny Gabbidon as caretaker manager following the departure of former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been officially appointed as assistant manager and Margetson comes in having spent three years at West Ham as goalkeeping coach.
Rowberry and Nicholson are appointed as first team coaches, and Gabbidon continues in his role as player coach.
Speaking to the Official Site as the news was announced, Slade explained.
‘I’m delighted with the four appointments. Scott, Martyn, James and Kevin are key additions to my backroom team, bringing experience, talent, enthusiasm and passion to our club.’
Slade goes on to say that Scott is obviously a Cardiff man and he’s relishing his new role as assistant and he knows he’ll be an integral part of what we now do moving forward.
‘Marge’s’ appointment was ideal for the manager as his roots are in Cardiff so he knows the club well and he knows James and Kevin also have a lot to offer on the training pitch with the experience they bring too.
