Manager History



Thomas Mitchell would become the first Rovers boss way back in 1884. Current Rovers manager Mark Hughes is the 30th different man to be at the helm for the club in its long history.

Two men, Bob Crompton (1926-1930 and 1938-1941) and Johnny Carey (1953-1958 and 1970-1971) have twice managed Rovers.
