Tranmere Rovers: Alex Russell appointed first-team coach

Tranmere Rovers have brought in former Bristol City and Cheltenham midfielder Alex Russell as first-team coach.

Russell's 24-year playing career also included spells with Rochdale, Cambridge United, Torquay United and Exeter City.

The 41-year-old was appointed Bristol City's Under-21 coach in 2012, after previously working in their academy.

Tranmere manager Rob Edwards said Russell would help develop the young players at the club in particular.
