Leicester City Under-18s manager Trevor Peake will retire at the end of the 2020-21 season.
The 63-year-old has been a coach in the Foxes’ academy since being hired by then-manager Micky Adams in 2003, but is now hanging up his coaching boots to spend more time with his family.
Peake is highly regarded by players and parents alike, both past and present, with a number of people telling FoxesHub that he will be missed around the club’s training ground.
“It was great to play under Trev,” says one former player who was released by Leicester City in 2013. “He was a good coach and a nice bloke, too. He always treated me fairly and improved me as a footballer. I know a lot of the lads I played with there would say the same.”
The club are yet to make a decision on his replacement, with Under-16 coach Adam Barradell and senior scout Sean St. Ledger likely to be in contention for the role.
FoxesHub would like to thank Trevor for his service to the club and wish him all the best in his retirement.
