Nottingham Forest continue search for key man replacement

Published

on

Nottingham Forest have upped their search for a new under-23 coach, the club’s official website has advertised.

The Reds are looking to bring in a replacement after coach Jack Lester departed the club.

Earlier this month, Jack Lester departed The City Ground in order to take up a new job as manager of Chesterfield, who were struggling in League Two.

Mark Warburton confirmed that the club were searching for a new man to fill Lester’s role.

Jack Lester was the coach of Nottingham Forest’s under-23 side and they are now searching for his replacement.

Lester also was partly in charge of Forest’s first team for a spell last year, alongside Gary Brazil, after Philippe Montanier was sacked and before Mark Warburton was drafted in.

Nottingham Forest have now publicly advertised this vacancy on the official website, welcoming applications before a deadline in mid-November.

The official job role is an Under-23 Senior Professional Development Coach.

Nottingham Forest’s policy of promoting youth players into the first team set-up has one of the best records in the division and in England so Lester’s absence will need to be filled swiftly.

The Verdict

Jack Lester will be a big miss for Forest.

He has worked with a golden generation for Forest’s academy, helping to nurture and bring through the likes of Matty Cash, Joe Worrall, Ben Osborn, Ben Brereton and others.

It is hoped that, given the success of the academy set-up, Forest can attract a high profile name.
