More Everton backroom changes

The Everton backroom staff witnessed one more departure and one more addition this week.

Andy Holden who had been part of David Moyes' coaching staff has now left Everton, whilst Dennis Lawrence has joined Roberto Martinez's backroom staff.

Lawrence has worked with Martinez in the past at Wigan and he joins the Everton set-up alongside Under-21 manager Alan Stubbs as first-team development coach.

Lawrence will assist Stubbs with the Under-21 side and also work with the Academy set-up, with the idea that the development throughout the age groups will remain consistent at every level.

"That`s the way Roberto has always worked, He believes that in order to have continuity and to be able to develop players, the players need to be working similarly to the first team and the coach needs to have an idea exactly what the manager is looking for and exactly what the first-team work is like. Lawrence told evertontv.

He continued: "You`re not saying that you`re then going to go and do the exact same thing but at least you`re working in the same footballing philosophy.

"I`ll be doing the same role I had at Wigan. I`ll be working around the first team and in terms of the Under-21s - Alan Stubbs is obviously the manager - but I will help Alan in whatever way possible."
