Fleetwood head coach Uwe Rosler says he is delighted to be linking-up with old colleague Rob Kelly after the coach agreed to become his assistant head coach this morning.

The Gazette revealed yesterday that the 51-year-old was favourite to take over the vacant assistant role and link-up with Uwe Rosler once again after the pair worked together at Leeds United.

He arrives at Highbury after leaving his position as first team coach at Blackburn Rovers last night.

Kelly brings a wealth of experience to Fleetwood, having enjoyed spells at the likes of Leicester City, Preston North End, West Bromwich Albion and Nottingham Forest.

Rosler said: “I’m delighted to once again work with Rob Kelly after our time together at Leeds.

“It was there we formed a very strong working relationship and I’m delighted such an experienced coach will be joining me here at Fleetwood Town.

“Rob has worked at all levels of football, as a manager, coach and assistant manager and he will be a great addition to our club.

“I think it is a very positive sign for Fleetwood Town that we can attract such a highly regarded coach.

“I’m really looking forward to working with him again.”
