Where is David Unsworth now?

David Unsworth, a consistent, gutsy performer, spent most of his senior career at Everton, before finally retiring from the game in 2009 whilst at Huddersfield Town.

An FA Cup winner with Everton in 1995, Unsworth also won one England cap during his playing career.

Upon retiring, Unsworth went into football coaching and joined Preston North End as a development coach.

He was then promoted to first team coach following the departure of Alan Irvine, and appointed caretaker manager on 30 December 2010 following the departure of Darren Ferguson.

He resumed his first team coach role upon the arrival of Phil Brown on 6 January 2011.

Unsworth was back as caretaker manager in December 2011 when Phil Brown was sacked but was relieved of his duties when Graham Westley was appointed.

In December 2012 he was appointed head of academy coaching at former club Sheffield United but left in August 2013.

In September 2013 Unsworth returned to former club Everton as assistant manager of the under 21’s squad assisting former team-mate Alan Stubbs.

When Stubbs left the club Unsworth was promoted to manager of the under 21’s Everton squad.

Unsworth’s young Everton side won the inaugural ‘Premier League 2’ title in 2017 after the under 21’s format changed to an under 23’s format.

He also had one game as caretaker manager of the first team in the last game of the 2015-16 season after Everton sacked manager Roberto Martinez.

Following the sacking of Ronald Koeman in October 2017, Unsworth once again stepped in as caretaker manager and took the reigns for eight games before relinquishing his role and moving back to his under 23’s job when Sam Allardyce was appointed as Everton’s new manager.
