Everton name backroom team for caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson

Everton have confirmed the backroom team for caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson.

Ferguson will be supported by a coaching team of John Ebbrell, Francis Jeffers and Alan Kelly for Saturday's home match against Chelsea.

Ebbrell, Jeffers and goalkeeping coach Kelly will temporarily move from David Unsworth's Everton Under-23s coaching staff to assist Ferguson.

The trio were part of the coaching team as Unsworth's side won the Premier League 2 title for the second time in three years last season. The young Blues then added the Premier League Cup to complete an unprecedented double.

Ferguson, Ebbrell and Jeffers boast a combined total of 620 first-team appearances for Everton.

Kelly, meanwhile, made more than 450 club appearances and won 34 caps for the Republic of Ireland during a 16-year professional career.
