Chris Hargreaves Joins Bristol Rovers.
The former Torquay United manager is the newly created BRFC Under 21 coach.
He will monitor players up to that age, working with Academy staff on the development of these players.
Bristol Rovers only have seven players under the age of 21 in our current squad but this will grow.
Chris Hargreaves will also be working with the young professionals at the training ground.
He will be a valuable experienced coach in the backroom team.
44 years old, Chris Hargreaves started his playing career with Grimsby Town in 1989.
BRFC supporters might remember him from his time with The Cobblers and/or Oxford United.
He scored over 40 goals in nearly 650 games for a total of eleven clubs.
He was appointed manager of Torquay United in January 2014 and left Plainmoor in June 2015.
Eagle eyed supporters might have spotted him watching Bristol Rovers in some recent games.
