Rob Page

Where is Rob Page now?

Rob Page only spent one season in the Premier League in 1999-2000 which was Watford’s maiden season, but it was a personal success as he was voted player of the season.

After dropping down the leagues he called time on his 18-year playing career in 2011 whilst playing for Chesterfield.

Starting his career with The Hornets in 1993, he went onto make over 550 first team appearances for six domestic sides as well as representing the Wales national side on 41 occasions.

Upon retiring from playing Page joined Port Vale as a coach within the youth setup before a promtion to first team coach in 2012.

When manager Mickey Adams resigned from the club in September 2014, he was appointed interim manager for six games before getting the job on a permanent basis.

After a successful first season at the club finishing 12th in the league, Page left in May 2016 to join newly promoted Northampton Town.

His Northampton side made an encouraging start to the 2016-17 campaign winning their first six games including an EFL win over Premier League side West Bromwich Albion.

Unfortunately his team couldn’t maintain their form and suffered a terrible run at the back end of the year where they were beaten in nine out of 11 games which ultimately led to his sacking in January 2017.

He wasn’t out of football for long and was appointed as the Wales under-21 manager in March 2017, replacing fellow ex-professional football player Geraint  Williams.

In August 2019 he was promoted to his current role as a first team coach for the senior men’s team under manager Ryan Giggs.
