Sorry if I have missed it anywhere but is Ben Davies staying on the coaching staff? If so I'm guessing he has left his Clee Town contract? Personally think he's a great addition, played at a great level and is clearly keen to kick on his coaching career.

Yes he is being kept on as coach and managed the reserves yesterday.

I've wondered if he carrying on turning out for Clee Town too, my guess is he'll hang his boots up.

As others have said, it has been confirmed he's being kept on as part of the staff. And since then, Holloway has also said he's not going to bring any senior staff with him and is going to work with the staff here already.

What hasn't been clarified is Ben's role, but I assume it'll be the standard "First Team Coach."

Good luck to him. He's a good guy and really threw himself into working within the Academy - putting the hours in and mixing with everyone.

He was before but he been thrust into hardcore first team staff duties now so I'm sure he'll go full time.

He's been working on his coaching qualifications and working with the academy and more recently the first team. He's probably still on the books part time at Clee town but don't know if he's playing regularly, probably just around if they need him because of injuries.

Out of interest, does Ian Holloway have all these marvellous coaching badges or has he been doing it long enough to have avoided learning all about PowerPoints.

I hope he has not got them because we have had enough of over thinking football,

Under Ollie we will play with passion,
