Forest Green make shock departure announcement


Stevie Grieve, who only joined Forest Green as Head of Performance & Recruitment in November, has left the club.

The 35-year-old replaced former Director of Football Richard Hughes, who left to join Portsmouth at the end of last year.

Grieve is understood to have been travelling from Scotland to work at the Bolt New Lawn and this is believed to be a mitigating factor in his departure.

Grieve joined Rovers from SPFL side St. Johnstone as the club’s Head of Recruitment, while he was Head of Analysis and Opposition Scouting at Dundee United between the summer of 2019 and 2021.

Grieve’s remit at Forest Green was to support former boss Ian Burchnall and latterly Duncan Ferguson during the January transfer window, as well as reviewing and improving performance aspects behind the scenes.

Grieve also looked after analysis and sports science, as well as aspects of the training ground environment – and also had an input on the set-up and design of the new Eco Park training ground.

Rovers confirmed Grieve’s departure on their club website: “We can confirm Head of Performance & Recruitment, Stevie Grieve, has left Forest Green Rovers with immediate effect.

“We’d like to thank Stevie for his efforts at FGR and we wish him all the best for the future.”
