Alex Revell Manager Profile
Alex Revell had the unenviable task of keeping Boro’s heads above water in League Two after Graham Westley left his position in February 2020. A member of the coaching team since retiring in summer 2019, it was quite a promotion. Let’s face it, the lad knew his stuff. But as a gaffer? Well, he couldn’t wish for a tougher situation in which to prove his stuff. Revs saw it all as a player, but taking up the reins when Boro’ were some way adrift at the foot of League Two? Now, that’s a challenge.
In the end, he that challenge paled into comparison with the wider situation in spring 2020. As the coronavirus swept the nation, the authorities hit the pause button on the campaign. And then called the whole thing off. Boro’ got a stay of execution due to the off-field plight of Macclesfield Town. For Revs, it meant a chance to start afresh in League Two; his own mark stamped on the squad as we looked to put right what had been a truly dismal 2019-20 season in more ways than one.
