Ben Garner



Ben Garner was appointed Rovers Manager in December 2019.

Garner has a strong pedigree in the game, having spent his coaching career at the highest level and signs a two and a half year deal at the Mem.

Starting his career with Crystal Palace’s Academy, Garner developed a strong reputation for developing young players and was promoted to the first-team staff under the guidance of Ian Holloway.

While working with Holloway, Garner was part of the coaching at Selhurst Park that won promotion to the Premier League in 2013.

Garner continued to work for the likes of Neil Warnock, Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew during his time at Crystal Palace, helping maintain the South-London outfit as an established top-flight side, before leaving the club in 2015.

It was at West Bromwich Albion where Garner re-joined Tony Pulis later on that year, working alongside the former Rovers player as his Assistant Manager at the Hawthorns and helping the Midlands club to a 10th place finish in the Premier League.

Most recently, Garner was Assistant Head Coach for Indian Super League Club, ATK, working alongside Steve Coppell before arriving at the Mem in December 2019
