Kevin Bond, who counts Tottenham Hotspur, Queens Park Rangers and Birmingham City among his former employers, appears to be the new Director of Football at Yeovil Town.

On Monday afternoon, owner-in-waiting (still not had official confirmation on a takeover) Matt Uggla posted on his Twitter account: “Kevin Bond in the door what a man.

This followed a somewhat more lengthy post on Sunday night where he said: “Tomorrow we have our new director of football coming in and I’m excited by working with both him and Mark.”

One therefore assumes that the post about Bond relates to his appointment in this role, however, assumption can be a dangerous thing. No doubt we will find out more in the coming days.

In his last role, Bond was part of the first-team coaching set up at Bristol Rovers, which he held from August 2021 until last October.

His departure followed the arrival of Glenn Whelan Danny Ventre as coaches at the Memorial Ground in the summer with Rovers’ boss Joey Barton saying: “I just felt we had too many cooks and with where we’re at and how we need to do it, we needed to streamline it a little bit. It’s unfortunate for Bondy that it’s him that exits the building, but we’ve got to be efficient and effective and I don’t think we were moving as efficiently as we could.

Prior to that role, he was notably assistant to Harry Redknapp, who was a guest at Huish Park for the recent home win over Eastleigh, during spells at Portsmouth, Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers.

He spent two years in charge at Bournemouth in the mid-2000s when the club suffered a ten-point deduction and were relegated to League Two in the 2007-08 season, and then hit with a further 17 point loss the following campaign leading to Bond being dismissed in September 2008. He went on to be re-united with Redknapp at Tottenham Hotspur and latterly QPR.
