Leicester City Under-18s manager Trevor Peake is set to retire at the end of the season.

The 63-year-old has been at the club since 2003 and has worked closely with academy colleagues Jon Rudkin and Steve Beaglehole ever since.

Micky Adams brought him in as a scout during his tenure as manager, with a full-time position in the academy following shortly afterwards.

Peake has played a key role in the development of players such as Andy King, Liam Moore, Jeff Schlupp, Ben Chilwell, Hamza Choudhury and Harvey Barnes.

Multiple sources have told FoxesHub that Peake will end his impressive 17-year tenure with the football club when the season ends, whenever that may be.

“It’s a shame that Trev is hanging up his coaching boots,” one of his former players told FoxesHub. “He’s a good bloke and took care of me when I played for the 18s there. I learned a lot from him.”

It is unclear who will replace Peake from next season, although assistant Stephen Kirby and Under-16s boss Adam Barradell are likely candidates.
