Kevin Maher and Adrian Tucker Appointed to Graham Coughlan’s First-Team Staff

22 July 2019

The Club is pleased to announce the appointments of Kevin Maher and Adrian Tucker to Graham Coughlan's staff.

The duo will complement the staff structure that Manager Graham Coughlan has built throughout the summer, following on from the appointment of Joe Dunne as Assistant Manager.

Maher, who has previously worked with Manager Graham Coughlan at Southend United, joins Rovers as a first-team coach, while  Adrian Tucker is appointed as goalkeeping coach.

Maher‘s most recent role was in charge of Southend's U23's side, which he held since 2015, aiding the progression of a number of youth players to the first team and winning two Central League cups in the past three seasons at Roots Hall.

Tucker joins with a vast amount of experience, most notably during his time at Swansea City, where he was part of the staff at the Liberty Stadium that won promotion to the Premier League.

The goalkeeping coach has also worked as part of the England U20’s staff under Aidy Boothroyd and returned to Swansea City last summer to work under the management of Graham Potter.

Speaking about the new additions to his coaching staff, Manager Graham Coughlan said, “I'm delighted to welcome both Kevin and Adrian to the football club.

"I've worked with Kevin before and we understand how each other operate and that will mean a seamless transition into pre-season, as we as staff put in plans for the season ahead.

“Adrian is coach that has a considerable amount of experience in the game, most notably at the highest level and that will be a huge assets to us and the goalkeepers at the club.

“I’m looking forward to working with the pair to bring success to the football club.”
