Experienced coach joins Imps as Assistant Manager

27 September 2019

The Imps are pleased to welcome David Kerslake to Sincil Bank as City's new Assistant Manager.

The 53-year-old is a vastly experienced coach, and arrives at Sincil Bank having spent a short period of time as West Bromwich Albion Academy's Head of Coaching, working alongside Michael Appleton.

Kerslake has held numerous roles as Assistant Manager across the divisions, with one of his first roles beginning in 2006, after being named Colin Calderwood's Assistant at Nottingham Forest. A role which David held for two years.

The former Tottenham Hotspur defender then joined Malky Mackay as his Assistant Manager at Watford in 2009, before joining the Scotsman at Cardiff City as their number two in 2011.

The former England youth international linked with Mackay once again at Wigan Athletic in the 2014/15 season, before joining fellow former Spurs team mate Justin Edinburgh as his number two at Gillingham and Northampton Town.

Kerslake will be in the dugout for the visit to Blackpool on Friday night.

Playing Career

Kerslake's career began at Queens Park Rangers, where made more than 80 appearances in the the mid 1980s. He has a host of England youth caps to his name, including one at under-21 level in a fixture against Turkey in 1985.

The former defender joined Swindon Town in 1989, and enjoyed success with the Robins, as he was named in the PFA Division Two Team of the Year twice, and won promotion to Division One.

Kerslake was part of the inaugral Premier League season, joining Leeds United in 1993 for a short spell, before signing for Tottenham Hotspur later that year.

Kerslake spent four years at White Hart Lane, before joining Ipswich Town in 1997 and finished his professional playing career at Swindon Town just shy of the millennium.
