Following the return to Spain of Emilio Millán, Biggleswade United have announced that Alex Salvador is to take over as the club’s first-team coach with immediate effect.
Salvador has been the club’s assistant coach since Millán took charge last November. He will be aided by new number two, Tom Farr, aged just 22, who will be combining his role as coach at Stevenage FC Academy with that of new first-team assistant coach.
Salvador is just 27 years old but is already a Pro Licence holder with a wealth of experience behind him.
Club chairman Guillem Balagué was quick to pay tribute to the job done by Millán before adding that the club’s choice of successor was never in doubt.
“When you have a game plan, policy, and an ideology that is based on continuity as we have at Biggleswade United then the next step is as easy as it is logical, and so Alex Salvador – currently assistant first-team coach – moves up to number one, the same transition as when Emilio took over from Jimmy Martin in November and the way we like to operate at this club.”
