Adam Stevens has returned to Coalville Town as their new first-team manager.
Coalville, who have been placed in the new Evo-Stik Southern League Central next season, have brought Stevens back to Owen Street and he will be joined by assistant-manager Danny Martin.
Neither need any introduction to the Ravens` supporters, having played for the club and being part of the side that reached the FA Cup First Round proper in 2004.
Stevens then took over as manager for the first time ahead of the 2007/08 season.
Steady progress saw promotion in 2011 along with an appearance at Wembley in the FA Vase Final.
Having narrowly missed out on promotion for two seasons, Stevens left in September 2014 and after a period out of the game joined Grantham Town, whom he transformed into one of the best footballing sides in the Evo-Stik League Premier and got them to the play-off final recently.
Chairman Glyn Rennocks told the club`s official website: “We have been through a very thorough interview process and I was pleasantly surprised at the calibre of people that applied. I’m sure many of them would have proved to be a good appointment we were unanimously in favour of appointing Adam and we are delighted he has accepted the challenge of taking the club to the next level.”
Stevens said: “As a Coalville person I am delighted to be back here at my home-town club. I am looking forward to getting started on shaping the squad ahead of pre-season, meeting the players and getting to know the supporters again”.
