Assistant manager

Richie Kyle

First team staff



Date of birth





Richie Kyle joined the backroom team in November 2022 as Assistant-manager to Rob Edwards.

The 38-year-old was Edwards’ number two at both Forest Green and Watford, with the pair having worked together for the Football Association as in-possession and out-of-possession specialist coaches with England U16s and U20s.

They had first met through Edwards’ links to former playing club Blackpool, where Kyle was Under-18s coach and head of coaching before progressing to first team level, helping the Seasiders to promotion from League Two at the Hatters’ expense in 2016-17.

Still living in the area, Edwards shadowed Kyle and helped him coach the Seasiders’ youth team in the months after retiring as a player.

Kyle, who had started coaching part-time in Everton and Blackburn’s academies, had a brief spell as Canadian women’s national team assistant manager in 2021 before returning to this country to help Edwards lead Forest Green to the League Two title.
