Des Lyttle

Where is Des Lyttle now?

Nottingham Forest’s preferred right back during their spell in the Premier League in the mid-nineties, Des Lyttle retired from playing in 2011 after dropping into non-league football with Tamworth.

Whilst still an active player with Tamworth, Lyttle was appointed manager of the side in 2010 after a spell as caretaker manager.

His time with the side was only brief as he quit the club six months into his tenure after a disagreement with the board over their decision to bring in an advisor to assist him.

After a short period out of the game, Des Lyttle took on the job as manager of Hucknall Town but left after just one season when the club decided that they needed someone with more experience of non-league football.

A seven month spell as assistant coach at York City preceded his current role as head football coach at Thomas Telford academy in Shropshire.

Since taking on the job at Thomas Telford school, Des Lyttle has led his under 18s side (which included his son) to victory in 2014 at the English Schools National Cup.

His son, Tyler Lyttle has followed his father into professional football and is currently signed by Stafford Rangers.
